Thought You Might Like to See This


Hi, I made this a couple of months back and use it for my Facebook profile picture. The background is a combination of Distress Inks and Alcohol Inks on gloss card. The leaves are from a diecut by Tim Holtz used as a stencil and made a stencil of a head which was originally from The Graphics Fairy (I think) using Black Paint Dabber. It was made on one of those days when you just have to make something for the fun of it.

Thank you for popping in and hope you are having a great weekend. At the moment I am having fun with an offcut from a door or work surface chipboard not sure which it is but I just happened to find it lying on the ground the other day (much to my husbands horror...lol) and a small canvas. Have no idea what am doing but its great fun............lol Take care, Annette x

Hi Annette

I think the best creations come when we are making something "just for the fun of it" .. .. .. which is how all creations should be made.

This is wonderful and a true work of art!! You are clever and very inspirational.

Love Jules xx

Hi Netty.
This is so colourful and beautifully vibrant. You are clever with those alcohol inks, I have not had very great success with them. It really is eye-catching and perfect for its intended use.
Thank you for your lovely comments.
