Linking up to Paint Party Friday again this week.

Since last time I have finished my Twin Angels double page spread in my journal.

I did a bit more on the background, the wings and the dresses.

 I think it is finished although looking at it here I may do more work on the dresses.

I also worked on a couple of tags.

 I had forgotten how much fun it is to use tags as a substrate.

 It is a quick and easy way to make a little bit of art.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks to all who stopped by last week.

I am linking up again this week with Paint Party Friday.

A place where artists can come together and share what they have been working on.

It's fun to come together with like minded people

and to see their work and hear their comments.

I started working on a double page spread in my

'Permission to Play' Journal.

  I've just a little more to do to it before it's finished.

I have also completed colouring my first page in the beautiful

 colouring book Coloriage Wild by Emmanuelle Colin.

It's a great way to practice my coloured pencil skills and I can't wait to start my next page.

This week I have been playing with different mediums.

Firstly coloured pencil in my new colouring book Coloriage Wild by Emmanuelle Colin

I will share my first completed page in a future post.

Secondly acrylics on a little cardboard painting for my box project.

This one went through many changes until I was happy with her.

Lastly a little watercolour.

Thank you to all who visited last week for Paint Party Friday.

 I really appreciate you stopping by and I love to hear your comments.

WIP and New Goodies


I have just been doing a little on a painting I started a while ago and put aside.

It started with a mono-print background.

I used acrylics and then coloured pencil on the hair, face and bodice's

More work is needed on the skirts and I think I will do some more to the

 background before I can call it finished.

I wrote in an earlier post about my new found interest in colouring books.

Its a great way to practice my watercolour and coloured pencil techniques.

the book mentioned in my post was Linda Ravenscroft's Fairy & Fantasy Art.

I have been watching Dede Willingham's videos over on You Tube where she shares

all her colouring techniques and Art Journaling ideas.

I am hooked now on books featuring artists illustrations and have just bought a new one

that I am very excited about and can't wait to get started on.

It has beautiful illustrations by Emmanuelle Colin.

Although I will work primarily in watercolour and coloured pencil for

small areas and finishing touchesI have come across these water based markers

by non other than crayola.

They have an amazing array of colours for what is notably known as a brand for children.

 Although some look very alike they are subtly different.

 I was AMAZED!

And here is another way that I found that you can use them.

Apply some to a palette

and apply with a brush.

Happy Days!!
