spots, spots an more spots...

Well I woke up this morning propped up in bed with my lap top on my knee half way through writing the last blog post...Wtf..???? Not sure what happened there, lol.

Any way today was Art Journaling workshop..Yayy.. Lots are on their jollies so I knew it was going to be nice and relaxing and it was. A perfect way to spend a Sunday, don't you think..??

Here's some of my journals, they look cool all together like that don't they..???

There was big congratulations today for the lovely Sarah , who is now known in blog land as Super Sarah Superpants, as she got top grades in her A levels and got into her chosen University to study medicine...You go girl..xx

I,ve been doing a lot more painting, Love this..Might be persuaded to make it a workshop next time..!!!

And how gorgeous is this hanging..??

Bezzie Su and Super Sarah Superpants finished painting the spots on the top of one of the units. It,s their favourite thing to do at the mo, paint spots. Easily pleased bless them..!!!

Just see what a difference it made when I added the shading.

And finally I added the outline and detail.

So this is what I did today..

I just love folk art painting , it is soooooooooooo relaxing.

Lots of you have asked about commissions and the answer is possibly. I am stacked out at the moment until the end of September , but I could think about doing some then. Its feels strange going back to my painting roots. This is how I first started out, painting commissioned pieces for people. I.m also going to do some massive canvas's of the trees for my living room wall. Ooh I can feel a grotto theme fast developing, lmao. Prob a good job the kids have left
Enjoy xx
