Here are 3 new paintings, well actually one is one I did a while ago, but was never quite happy with it so I went back and added some texture, that is shine which is mixed media on wood

 The next is a new painting called Serenity. She has already sold and is on her way to her new home :)
And finally one I did yesterday, which is on canvas, with lots of collage papers and texture...hasn't got a name yet!

Indigoblu challenge

This is for the Indigoblu challenge....Words are all you need

For this challenge I first sprayed a coaster that I had gessoed, with Indigoblu paints Townhouse teal and Frosty Sky ( these paints are beautiful to use) in a spray with water. Then using the Indigoblu stamps from this months simply cards and papercrafts, I stamped with the ends of the ladies hair around the edges. I then used frantage embossing powder around the edges. Stamping onto a separate card, I used the lovely words that came with the magazine.

New tote bags

I got some new tote bags done ready for some craft fairs coming up. If anyone is interested in 1 they are £7 each...see my Face Book page

Life and Art

life and art.....

I am sorry for the lack of posts life has been up and down to say the least. My darling Hubby, Wayne was diagnosed with cancer of the tonsil and lymph glands in his neck. he had to have a major operation followed by 6 weeks of Radiotherapy. He recovered well from the op, but the Radiotherapy has made him really ill. He had to be over in England away from home for 7 weeks. He is home now, but is still not able to eat, he is on complan drinks, as he has pain in his mouth and other side effects. It was our Silver Wedding Anniversary whilst he was in hospital and I went to spend a few days with him. Not how I imagined we would spend our silver, but at least we were together.
I had booked last year a secret retreat with Indigoblu, and it came just as I needed it!! myself and 3 girlfriends flew over to England and had 3 days of crafting heaven.
Wayne and I 25 years ago!!!!
