Bits and Pieces for Paint Party Friday

Hi, hope you have been having a great week, am afraid haven't done a lot of painting, but would like to share with you some pages from my Art Book - nope they are not finished, but there again there is no rush is there!




Just playing around with ideas and then thought would have a go at a Kingfisher on a Wooden Heart, obviously not brilliant but not too bad for a first attempt.


In a week or two I shall own a Gelli Plate which will be a birthday gift from my husband, he has no idea what this is, just knows I want one badly...........so it will be off to UTube for me to check out how to use it and can hardly wait.  I wonder if you can use it directly onto canvases...........mmmmm

Looking forward to seeing everyones contributions to Paint Party Friday.

Have a lovely weekend and wrap up warm if you live in the UK its turned very cold here, take care and thank you popping in, hugs Annette x

Lovely pieces Netty!

Brenda Brown said...

I love seeing your art pieces Annette and sometimes wish I had the inclination to draw and paint again, but love what I'm doing at the moment. Your kingfisher is bright and beautiful and looks fabulous on the heart. I am sure you will love your gelli plate, I'll spend a whole session using it and then keep my sheets to use as backgrounds. I will be interested to see your experiments with canvas.
Have a great weekend.

If anyone should have an art journal you should! I love the one with the houses. I don't know why but I love house. Oh Annette - before I turn around twice, you will be doing your own tutorials using a Gelli plate. I think I am as excited as you. You use colors so well. Oh I can't wait!!!!! Your faces are exceptional.
