A small canvas

After a very windy and chilly day yesterday, and a frosty night, I am hoping that I will not have to freeze so much today. It is just raining today, everything is grey in grey, and I woke to the cheerful sound of raindrops dripping off the branches.... And to crown it all, I seem to have caught a cold, so am not too happy about that. But rainy weather is a good time to stay home and be creative!

Yesterday I did not get very far with my H*******K. I did mop the floors, but then when I wanted to tidy the kitchen, I saw the paints and embellies I had got ready to re-use some canvases, and somehow I had to play with them.... This little canvas is one of the results. 2 others are half finished, so there will be more to come. The canvas has been painted with structure paste, and then with layers of greens, purple, blue and some black. I added Stickles again for some glitter and shine, and decorated it with some Prima and other flowers and berries. The canvas is 10x10 cms.


So, I will be having an easy day today, I want this cold to go away, so that means some rest! How good that one can rest so well while painting.... Have a good day you all, take care and thanks for coming by!
