The Dark Month!

Here is another dark January digital piece. And no, I'm not feeling sad, it's just artistic licence!

Be Positive!

I made this whimsical wall plaque using paints, collage, oil pastels and a Stabilo All pencil. Not my usual style, but I quite like it!

Once Upon a Time ...

I picked up some paints, some tags, pictures and tape and this is what I ended up with. No planning, just playing! (Click on the pictures if you want to make them larger.)

Playing with Pebeo Paints

For Christmas, my sister gave me some Pebeo dimensional paints. Here are my first two projects using them. It is hard to take good pictures of them because the paints are very shiny!

The Dark Month!

January is probably my least favourite month, cold with dark evenings and the festive period passed. It can also be a time when it is easy to feel blue. Don't worry, I'm fine, but that's how this digital piece originated.

Peace and Calmness

As you will be able to see, I created this journal page a little while ago! I have to confess the last months haven't been that creative, what with having a new kitchen put in and then all the busyness and events around the festive period. I am hoping, though, that now things have calmed down somewhat my creative juices will start to flow again.

Here are a couple of note cards I made recently. I used Brushos to create the background, stamped over them and then added the stitched frames.

Today ...

Today, I am even more behind than I was yesterday! I am not at all prepared for Christmas and I have had very little crafting time recently, but maybe today I will be better than I was yesterday and start to restore some order!!

Here is a little digital piece I made.
