Work in Progress and another LIM Card

Hi, hope you are all having a good Friday and looking forward to the weekend.



First I would like to show you another Less Is More Card and hope the girls have achieved their goal of 1,000 entries.  Products used are: Pringle Hill Studios, Molly Blooms and a Bottle Top.  I apologise about the photograph but these tall/narrow cards are the very devil to photograph.  It may look better if you can enlarge it by clicking it..............

I have been busy doing lots of bits and pieces (mostly half finished........sob sob) and am not getting very far with this painting as I could not make up my mind how to do it, so rather than bore you to death with the details am showing you it in a block of 4 from the beginning to how it is at present. 

Am hoping to get this complete before Monday, I just need to knuckle down to it as I keep flitting about from one thing to another................Paint Party Friday is a great blog to visit where there are some very accomplished artists and I love viewing their work.

Take care of yourselves and thank you for your wonderful support.  Hugs Annette xx

So far, your lovely painting is very "Monet" looking. It has the potential to be a real show stopper.

Yes, sometimes less is more. In the case of your card it definitely is. The balance seems perfect on this one Netty~

I love your card Netty, the colours are so vibrant and the image is fab.
