Early Post for Paint Party Friday

Hi, yep its an early post for PPF as Thursday and Friday here is going to be busy.  Carpets to be laid and new furniture delivered, plus painting the Bathroom (which is long overdue).  Will be visiting your blogs over the weekend, sorry about this.

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour
(William Blake)
This page was created using serviettes, Mask and Acrylics Paints, I kinda like it as it shows the pleasures I get from this earth.

The double spread below is to be journalled in, there is a booklet attached marked Dreams where my writings will go.


Created using Acrylic Paints, Masks, Oil Pastels, White Pen,  Stamps and collaged pieces.

Thank you for popping in.  Wishing you a lovely weekend and take care of yourself, hugs Annette x

Beautiful work, love the blue/ green pages, such lovely colours. Valerie

The soft mistiness of the picture has a metaphysical feel to it, to match the metaphysical poet whose lovely words you use. Perfect match, and beautiful colours.
Hope all goes well with the house upgrade, while the result is pleasant, it's not easy to live with while it is happening.

Good luck with all the redecorating... it'll be worth it once it's all over, I'm sure!

Good morning to you princess! Your painting is gorgeous. A princess views her realm. What a fabulous idea to create a little book for dreams within the journal. Your first name might be Annette but your middle name is Talent! You do sound super busy but when it is all done and your new furniture arrive it will be a new place to live!
