International Women’s Day


Proud to have one of my girls being exhibited as part of International Women’s Day at The Makers Mezzanine in Whitney on Wye. 
All the works of art are postcard size and I decided to work on a wood block using acrylics, watercolour and of course some washie tape. 
I added an inspirational quote which I felt reflected the theme #balanceforbetter.
All the works of art are for sale and a percentage of the profits will go to local women’s services in Herefordshire and Powys.

Happiness is...


Started with a Gelli print background in my paperbag journal. Added some stamping, foiling and frantage to the page. The image (Danielle Donaldson designs for Stamping Bella) is coloured using Copics/Promarkers and a touch of coloured pencil.

A bit of a puzzle!


I decided it was time to dust of some of my PaperArtsy girls for these altered jigsaw puzzles pieces. Drippage using acrylic ink, stencilling using both neon ink and acrylic paints. Of course plenty of stamping and I coloured my girls in with Promarkers/Copics.

Skies I’m Under



Another page in my paper bag journal. 
Worked on the Gelli print page by adding stamping and some doodling.

More Focus


Upcycled a little metal tin for this cute little door hanger. Painted using Fresco paints and glittered the inside. The background is a Gelli print using Distress Oxide inks and the girlie stamps are from Stamping Bella. I chose the quote as it included my word for 2019 ‘focus’.

Positive


Used a graphite stick and pencil shading using paper stump. 
Went for some simple inky stencilling for the background.

Workshop Project


Been wanting to do a workshop for ages but was in limbo in 2018 waiting for and having an operation. All recovered and focussing on things I really want to do in 2019.
So spent some time playing with ideas and finally got a workshop organised for Saturday 23rd February at my local craft shop called The Pedlars Tray in Herefordshire.
 You can book a place by emailing sales@thepedlarstrayltd.co.uk or by telephoning 01432 379095.
