Hello Everyone...

Back today to share a sweet little image from MISS DAISY STAMPS  ..

This little poppet is from the Raggedy Girl collection called DAISY MAE  [cute name too]

There she is all coloured up with Reno Art markers and rather bright...with lots of daisies sprinkled around...

Unusual colour combo for me..but in real life the colours go really well together..

The papers were a freebie pack from a magazine and the chipboard sentiments went with that was a bonus..

MISS DAISY STAMPS   has such a lovely collection of do pop along and have a look around.

Thanks so much for stopping by....

Hello Everyone..

No DT projects to share at the!!..

I'm going to share a project I have been working on for awhile..and I'm quite happy with the finished result.
I had an order for a canvas or two, and the client gave me a canvas that  she had purchased from a store, and liked at the time, but after the " Bark" canvases I did for her she didn't want this one anymore and gave it to me..well, to be honest I didn't like it much I changed it..

This is what I was given....

Well. it's not that bad.. but to me, Poppies should be!!

I used modelling paste over the poppies and let dry naturally..

Then painted them red with Acrylic paint...shaded the edges with water pastels and smudged away until I couldn't think anymore of what to do...

Then I tinted up some more modelling paste with red paint and plopped it on  here and there...when it dried, I realised I used the wrong red and it dried sort of brown in colour...and I didn't like that much.

So I  painted it again but this time using my fingers as it was so much quicker and I really enjoyed myself...
In this photo I just couldn't get the real colour to show, but it looks,IRL like the first red coat but with more texture...

Anyway, I was happy with it and here it is now on my craftroom wall....not too shabby eh!

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you soon...

Hello Everyone...

Phew...not saying a word..about you know what...but have been watching the different countries and send the warmest wishes I can..

Today is Thursday and time for Delightful Thursday at DIGITAL DELIGHTS 

This week I had the pleasure of choosing this little Bunny who is just so sweet...HEART ROSE BUNNY  is her name and deserved to be on a plaque...even a cardboard box heart shape..

There she is, hanging inside one of my plants the shade...where it is not too hot!

My little bunny is coloured with Faber Castell pencils and I merged the sentiment "Sweet on You " which you can find HERE from Digital Delights onto her heart...gel pen for the dots and the red is a reno marker.

The banner die was from my friend Chrissyxx for Christmas [thanks Chrissy, I love it]..

I added the lace around the heart shape, a bow, flowers and glitter...and paper pieced the heart as the cardboard box had writing all over it..

So there we plaque down and several more to go..orders for next time..

Thanks so much for stopping by...I'm off to find a bucket of old water to stick my feet in..and I only mentioned the word HOT once.

See you tomorrow...
