New painting

Here is my latest painting, which I made yesterday. It is on canvas, with lots of layers of paper and paint. I was inspired by a photo of a flower which was turquoise and orange.
This original painting, which is 8 x 8 inches, is available here in my Etsy shop. I will be adding prints soon!

Back to ATC's

About 4 years ago I joined an amazing online community and my creative journey took off. I had always been artistic, but had never been encouraged as a child and then work and children took over. After finding an online community which encourages and supports, I began to call my self an Artist!! I explored many mediums and I think I have found my style, and I was brave enough to open my Etsy Shop
For those of you who don't now what ATC's are , they are Artist Trading Cards, which are 2.5 x 3.5 inches and you trade or sawp them with others from around the world. Its for all levels of ability, just a yearning to make art will do! I have hundreds of cards from people all over the world.
I haven't entered any swaps for a while and I am so pleased to be back swapping again. Here are some cards from a couple of swaps I have entered. One is Dark/Fallen Angles, the other is Our Lady of Guadalupe. I send in 3 cards ( an extra as a gift for the person hosting the swap ) and then I get 3 different cards in return!

Rag Rugging

A couple of weeks ago I went to a rag rug work shop, oh my it was brilliant, I think I may have a new obsession!! We all made a rag rug heart. I was really pleased with how mine came out :0 The previous weekend I did a nuno felting workshop, which was hard work, but I loved the effect, mine is the white one in this picture.
