Having a Paddle.................

Hi, hope everyone is enjoying Easter................

Measures 220 x 170

'Having a Paddle' was designed to fit in with both the Fashionable Stamping and  Crafty Individuals challenges. Both brilliant challenge blogs.

Products used:
Acrylic Paints, Stazon Ink, Distress Inks and pink shells from stash
Stamps by:  Crafty Individuals and set in a digital frame

Really enjoyed designing this piece, the main background was created from acrylic squishings and then added more acrylic paint to it.  Hope the atmosphere comes through.  (You may have to enlarge it to read the words)

Have to tell you I forgot to defrost the meat for today's dinner and ended up eating fishcakes.........aaaahhhhh still at least we will have our Easter Dinner tomorrow............which reminds me must get that chicken out of the deep freeze...............

Take care and will be seeing you soon.  Hugs Annette x

I do that quite often these days forget to "defrost the meat" I call it blond moments but it is probably more to do with my age. I love this piece you have done love the addition of the seashells.xxx
