Frida Love

I feel sooo much better now that I got a new painting finished :)
I LOVE you?
She is painted on wood, with lots of gorgeous layers.
The little skull stamp in the corners is one I made myself!

I just had to play with needlefelting after trying it at Artfest last week.
I made it into a little hanging,

I had the most WONDERFUL time over the weekend at Artfest. I made so many lovely new friends,played with lots of art stuff, did the best workshops. The company was good, the hotel was great the food brill- just FAB!!!
I loved learning how to hand carve stamps, I really need to order the knives now so I can make some more, and I loved learning how to neeedle felt- this could be my new obsession!
One of the photos is the stamps I made ( I love the little birdie one!), and the other is the first night outside the restaurant, although 3 people aren't on it as 2 were arriving on the Sat, and the other we forgot and left behind at the hotel!! yes really- we had to go fetch you can guess we had a real fun time. I am 6 in from the right in the blue and white top!

Hi everyone, I had to let you know about a lovely fellow artist who has featured me on her blog, her name is Cara, click on her name to take a peek. She is trying to encourage etsy artists from the UK.

Also to let you know I am away from Friday 12th to Sunday 14th, as I am going to Artfest!!
Its a weekend of art and workshops that some of us from in the UK have organised so we can meet together and trade and make art and have fun.
I am so excited, I can't wait to see some of the girls I have already met, but also those I haven't yet. I am looking forward to learning some new skills, I am really looking forward to the needle felting I have wanted to try that for ages.
Well I shall let you know all about it when I return, and hopefully have some photos.
