Paint Party Friday offerings ..........

Hi its Paint Party Friday again.........oh my it comes around so quickly and I had nothing completed until last night.  Over the last few weeks I had seen other painters drawing and painting in books; although I use book pages sometimes in my crafting/journals had never considered just keeping an old book for painting in..........so last night methinks to myself why not give it a go Netty.....

'oops forgot to tell you her name is Judith, she ended up becoming a Nun!
Here is the result..............all done in watercolour wax pastels, the background was smeared with pastel chalks and then hairsprayed the lot to set it.



This is as far as have got with my multi media piece..........got a bit of a block on with it at the moment so am leaving it until I figure what else to do with it.

Thank you for all your great support in my painting adventures and will be back shortly to check out all of your lovely work.  In the meantime have a great weekend and hope the sun shines down on you.  Hugs Annette x

PS   Off to buy a new toaster as ours is now popping the toast up so high you have to catch it before it ends up on the kitchen floor ........not good when you are hopeless at catching............lol

The multimedia, can't wait to see it finished if this is not finished. xoxo

Tracey Fletcher KIng said...

Judith looks quite intense and I really like following your painting adventures... great fun, and I would love a toaster like that... it would make breakfast that bit more exciting... I am hopeless at catching too but it would be worth it to see a piece land on the dog's head!!! That would make my morning... hope you found a good one...xx
