Paint Party Friday and Dragons Dream Tag it On

Hi, its Friday.....so that means Paint Party........yeaaaaa...........  I have nearly completed Picasso's  'Girl with a Dove', just a bit of touching up here and there to do and then its ready for my Art Tutor on Wednesday.  Will have to work on The Harvester over the weekend and try and get that finished as well.............fingers crossed.

There are loads of fabulous artists at the Paint Party and its always such a joy to see their wonderful work.

At long last I have been able to join in with one of the challenges at Dragons Dream Tag it On.  This week its Seaside.  There are some fab examples from the DT.  This tag has been painted with acrylics and texture paste, perfect pearls, Stickles and added some Shells.  The stamps are by Scrolls Work and Crafty Individuals; stamped with Archival ink and Big and Juicy.  The tag will be going on my Mother's birthday present next week along with this Pyramid Card which uses all Crafty Individual Stamps.  Just hope she likes them.   Mum is 86 on Wednesday and a beautiful jewellery maker and designer, yep I am a very proud daughter.

Thank you for visiting me and have a lovely weekend, take care, Hugs Annette x

Gorgeous painting! There's something so loving and special at the way she holds the dove. You've done a super job of painting this.

Also loving the pyramid card - I make a lot of my own cards and feel inspired to make a pyramid card now, thanks.

Annette: I love visiting YOU (have I said that before?)! How cool that your Mom is an artist too ... my Mom is in heaven now and I think she was kinda artsy too, but she was an awesome nurse too and she spent her whole life helping people and little time for herself, so I didn't see the creative side too often. Bet your mom LOVES the tag and pyramid. Beautiful work Annette!
