For Paint Party Friday , hosted by Kristin and Eva, I am sharing a picture I painted when I was in the fourth grade at primary (elementary) school. It is very tattered and torn, I discovered it folded into a large book. I am amazed at all the detail in it, I think I could paint better then than now, or perhaps I just don't try to do things like this anymore. At school you have to do what you are told!
I have started a lot of things this week, but not finished most of them! These two tags/ bookmarks / whatever have been made from the back of a painting block that I have been using to try out stamps and colours. I just added some colour to the bird, flower and eyes, and then a bit of Stickles. I think things like this are too good too waste! What do you do with your scribble paper?
For the Craftroom Challenge I have made a large tag. The theme is 'Valentines', and I have tried to convey the idea of fading memories of a past romance The background of the tag has been distressed with antique linen and vintage photo, and stamped with roses, French script, and some Paris motives for a (hopefully) romantic flair. I stamped the next layer of images with Adirondack espresso, before adding the love letter - also distressed and stamped with the same colours. I added some textile violets -- which I found in my fridge!!, some images from CI, and ribbons which I trimmed with home made beads.
Have a great day you all, have fun, take care and thanks for coming by!
