Hi you all. It looks like a fine and sunny day here, so perhaps we are in for some nice weekend weather. I do not like roasting in the sun, but it's nice to be able to sit on my balcony and paint or drink coffee, or both!
At Paint Party Friday they want to know what distracts us from painting. I think I don't let myself be distracted from painting or crafting. I am often distracted from h*******k in all its varied forms, but from painting? Nope!
I have painted a lot this past 2 weeks, so much that my paints are running low, which means that I will have to take trip to Creative Discount next week. It's a sort of art warehouse in town. Everything is piled up on shelves with narrow passages between them, you take a basket and wander round. I never find what I want first time off, but I do manage to find lots of things that I like while I am looking, and ususally emerge with a satisfyingly full basket and a lot to pay....Anyone else know things like that?
Today I am sharing the second picture I painted this week, a mixed media piece again, 12 x 15". (The first picture can be seen here ) The faces have been drawn onto ancient book pages, and painted over with gesso, as has the heart. After painting with acrylics and *bubbling*, I stamped some images, and added some floral rub-ons and of course, my favourite leopard to finish it. I have called this picture *Talking to myself*.
And I have made 2 postcards for three challenges. The postcards are my entries for 2 Gingersnaps challenges, *Cowboys* and *Make a scene*, and I am also entering them into the postcard challenge over at *Just for fun*
and into the *Color my world* challenge at *The cheerful stamp pad*
Here is my cowboy postcard:
The sun-down scene has been created using distress inks, and the sun has been stamped with colourbox pigment ink. The cowboy has been clear embossed and decoupaged again, and the wild geese flyin' by are from Lavina stamps.
OK, it just remains for me to wish you a lovely day. Take care, and thanks for looking!
