On the Easel and a few Hanging Hearts for Paint Party Friday

Hi, wow it sure is a busy time at the moment with Christmas coming soon.  Cards made and bought and quite a few prese's as well.  Am definitely not making a Christmas cake or pudding this year as am the only one that eats it, so its a waste.  Am in the middle of making an altered book for a Christmas decoration.  But today would like to show you whats on my easel, yep have quite a few easel's with work waiting to be completed..........

I think this needs an white acrylic wash over it to tone it down a bit, what do you think, would be pleased to know.

Finished my Christmas hanging hearts.....................yea

One each for the kids trees; usually make a decoration for their trees each year, they are made from chipboard shapes.  Painted, Stamped, Texture Paste, stones and glitter.

I would like to enter these hearts into the The Artistic Stamper Challenge - Christmas

Thank you for popping in and wishing you a happy weekend, we are off visiting over the weekend, but will pop over to see you asap. Take care of yourselves and wrap up warm, hugs Annette x

Hi, its ages since have taken part in Paint Party Friday and have really missed it.  Mostly because I've been playing with designs and paints and not really getting anywhere even though it has been great fun.

The above is a Calla Lily I painted in Acrylics and then framed it with Photo Flexer (free digital programme)

Canvas 18 x 12 inches is drying on the easel.  The canvas has been painted over numerous times but have never liked the results.  This time painted various shades of blue, then used modelling paste over a stencil, its still not dry.  What will happen next have no its a wait and see jobby.

A page taken from my Sketch Book, background created with Pic Monkey (free digital programme), the lady on the left is an angel but using the background her wings got rather lost, still it was fun to do.

We went to the Castle Theatre in Wellingborough on Tuesday to have a coffee and popped upstairs to see the latest Art Exhibition, such a joy to see, paintings were by a local artist Brenda McKetty (Painter/Illustrator), mostly whimsical seaside scenes, but it was the colours she used that thrilled me, wonderful joyful colours which made me smile.

Hubby had his 'op Wednesday and arrived home at 10.15 pm, good to have him home safely.  He has to go again in February for more Stents but they will keep him in hospital this time as he has to have quite a few.

Playtime over as have to get my Christmas Heart Tags finished.  Thank you for dropping by and wishing you a lovely weekend, stay warm and safe.  Hugs Annette x
