A Gift and a Card for Mothers Day

Hi, am missing Paint Party Friday this week as still have loads of work to do on my painting.  But wanted to show you a couple of pieces I created for my Mother who is 87 years of age this year for Mothers Day.

I found the tutorial/video for making this Pouch at Linda's blog   http://liveartnow.blogspot.com/2012/02/no-sew-pouch-using-fabri-tac-glue.html   Linda said it would prove to be addictive and it certainly is, already have plans for the next one.  Thank you Linda for sharing.  Linda's Pouches are to die for.  Methinks mine needs a little refining, still not too bad for a first attempt and a quick sweep with the iron should smarten it up a bit.


To go with the pouch, created this card from one of my earlier paintings.  The papers and pink spotted ribbon are from Papermania.  The colours showing in the photograph are not correct as its really chocolate and pinks, not sure why it is showing burgandy............any ideas?

Thank you for popping in.  Will be back on Sunday showing my DT creations for Happy Daze.  Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm.  Hugs Annette x

PS.........if you click the title post it should take you straight to Linda's tutorial and you will also see her beautiful pouches.

Beautiful Netty !

I wanted to give you the award I just got but you have too many followers But you are still an inspiration to me x

Cath Wilson said...

So pretty, Netty and what a great blog! Love the card, too - I see chocolate. I think chocolate and burgundy have the same colour constituents so maybe that's why you can see burgundy - I see it, too but it's more chocolatey. Always depends on your monitor, too. Lovely to see such unusual artwork x
