Tag Tuesday - Fairy Garden

 The theme on Tag Tuesday set by Michele is Faery Garden, I have very little in that line, but after having a search of my studio found enough to put a tag together. The background is distress inked and then stamped with a variety of forgotten stamps. I added some flowers for the fit the garden part of the theme.

Thursday Journal with Neet

 'I have neither the time or the crayons to explain it to you' are the words this week. Once again I have left it to the last minute. I sprayed the background with Dylusion inks and then added some Distress inks and used some of my favourite stencils in the background.  Gloria on the left has told her friend Annabel that she just does not want to go the the shops with her. She doesn't want anything and she hates shopping. Annabel does not understand and Gloria says "I have neither the time or the crayons to explain it to you"

I am entering this on Art Journal Journey where Erika's theme is Favourite things.

Paint Party Friday Week 45

A new series for Paint Party Friday. As we are in lockdown and the weather if freezing I have started a series of watercolour paintings of British Birds. This is a blue tit taken from a photograph I took when we lived in Wales. He is sitting on the top of our bird feeder.

Thursday Journal with Neet

I didn't get around to doing this until last night as I had no idea how to illustrate the quote. In the end I decided on Winston the bulldog with his brother Cecil who looks just as grumpy and fed up.                  The background is distress inks over a mop up page, and the figures are all Dylusions which are some of my favourite. I really like Cecil who is sitting down and taking life easy, he still has his slippers on. Winston is getting het up about all the humans he has to deal with on a daily basis. He sees a vision of them in his head and is not a happy dog.

I am entering this on Art Journal Journey where Erika's theme is 'favourite things' There are several on here, Cecil, Distress inks and my watercolour pens.

Paint Party Friday Week 44

 This week for Paint Party Friday, a painting of peach blossom from a photo taken in a friends conservatory. I had pollinated all the flowers with a small paint brush, and there was a lot of fruit later on, so the effort paid off.

Happy and healthy New Year to you all.
