Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by. I'm finally sharing a face, well two actually that I created to link to the lovely Kim Dellow's show your face on Art it Friday. If you don't know what I'm talking about then please take a look here. I must say that every week some amazing Artists share their faces with Kim's site, and they are so talented and inspirational.
I'm late posting as I have had a cold which has really brought me down. I won't bore you with the details but suffice to say I've not been able to create so what I'm sharing is a digital piece and a face I made a few weeks ago.
Sending hugs from a poorly me, you all take care and I'll see you soon. Xxx

Hello everyone, welcome to my crafty home. I'm writing this quick post as I want to tell you about my amazing day yesterday at Birds In...
I built up up my layers of colours using Fresco Acrylic Paints from Paper Artsy brayered on the page. Once that was dry I added some texture with Grunge Paste through a circle stencil. I then lay the Masks of the girls and using a palette knife I applied Fibre Paste from Golden around the edges of the girls were outlined in the paste.
I then added some circles here and there and painted the rest out with Black Gesso.
Using a white Sygno Gel Pen I scribbled round the circles
Using a sentiment with white Ink I stamped randomly
Hello everyone, today I'm bringing you my second piece for the current challenge over at Country View Crafts . There are some fabulous ...
This leads me to let you know, that a new challenge starts today at That's Crafty, and the theme is Haunted/Halloween. Believe me, there's some very spooky inspirations over on the blog from my team mates, so pop over there and have a look, if you Dare!
And of course, if you enter the challenge there's the chance you could win a £20 voucher to spend in the shop. So come on! tune into your darkness and let your creativity go wild.
I used a 6x6 grey/white board and gave it a coat of Crackle Paint. Once dry I applied Fresco Acrylic Paints in Blue Oyster with a brayer and then using Caramel randomly added the colour, again with brayer and then edged the board with French Roast.
For my next element I used a face I had painted in my journal. I shrunk the Picture and printed it off the size I needed. This is the face below. You will notice that I cut it from its background which I liked but did not fit with the room.
Well there you have it. I hope either I or my teamies have inspired you to play along. Don't forget to follow the rules to be in with a chance. Looking forward to see what you all make.

Hello and welcome everyone, today I'm sharing some more new stencils from That's Crafty. Their Dinky Stencils really are a treasure....
here, and on Saturday I had a painted face on the blog which you can see here.
Well anyway, I printed the face off and coloured her with soft Pastels, I didn't get the whole face as she is actually quite large.
I loved the effect of the pastels. I actually forgot how much I love pastels.
Next I took a photo of this, and took it into another app called Brushstrokes. It's a great app for changing the colours etc. And this is what I got.
I am going to use this as a reference photo to see if I can recreate it in paint. So watch this space...
I'm going to enter this into Kim Dellow's Show your face, which is my second link this week. Kim invites us to link to her site each week where we can see other artist's work. It's a great community full of inspiration and support. You can check it out here

This week Kim was over on the Paper Artsy Blog as their topic this fortnight, is faces. Yes I know. faces are everywhere! But once you start I know you will be addicted. Kim shared a fabulous face on the blog with a tutorial so pop along and have a look.
I recently signed up for an online class with Ivy Newport and Robin Laws, called Paint and Pixels. It is a great little class that's demonstrates mixing digital with your own art. I love this idea!
