HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME...........and all that Jazz

Hi, its my birthday on Friday 31st, yep am a Halloween baby...............so don't be scared about singing the Birthday Song out loud;  obviously it has to be loud so I can hear you.........lol

To celebrate have used one of my acrylic paintings and digitised it for Halloween -using PicMonkey


Definitely Scarey

Next one is not so scarey.......depending on your point of view, a page from my Sketchbook, using Distress Inks and Acrylics.......


Wild and Free

Both of these pictures are going into the Art Journal Journey Challenge - Deep in the Forest and Paint Party Friday

Then carried on having some more fun with dear old Humpty Dumpty which was worked in Pens, on an Index Card but as he was as high as a kite, on what I do not know I hence digitised the background.....


No, he is not going to fall or jump, he is quite happy being spaced out

Thats all from me on my birthday week, hope you have enjoyed it.  Off to a family Halloween Party on Saturday, mainly for the children of course............broomstick and hat at the ready am good to go.

Take care of yourselves and be happy, Hugs Annette xx

The first painting is terrific, love the vivid stripes in the background and all the spooky images especially the spooky tree.
Second one is such a striking image, I like it very much. As to it being frightening, if I was walking in a forest and came across this flying body, I might run away fast.
As for Humpty Dumpty I feel a bit spaced out myself gazing at this surreal image, nice work, Netty.

Jo Murray said...

Happy birthday to youooooooo (can you hear me singing?)

Oh Annette - I'm so sorry to hear about the pneumonia - what a horrible follow-up to your birthday, for which I wish you belated greetings. Loving all the projects here, and I hope you managed to enjoy the party before the pneumonia set in. Sending you warm hugs and wishes for a really speedy recovery.
Love,
