Paint Party Friday plus Postcard and a Journal Page

Acrylics on Canvas

Hi, have three things to show you today, firstly the 2nd Stage of one of my WIP's from last Paint Party Friday.  Not sure if am going to add any more to it, what do you think?

Gesso, Distress Inks, Stamps by Stampotique, Lost Coast Designs and Paper Artsy. Plus Scraps.
We are going to one of my favourite places (Stratford on Avon)  in a couple of weeks for a few days and  have tickets for two plays at the RSC...........no prizes for guessing which ones they are..............lol  (ought to mention they are not being produced in the usual way and hopefully my page reflects this )


Lastly am showing a Postcard which has been watercoloured and stamped using a  Joanna Sheen stamp.  Crackle Glaze added plus Micra Beads.  Am hopefully going to enter it into the Crafty Cardmakers Challenge which is to show a beach scene, you can just see a little bit of sand if you look closely and the new Daring Cardmakers Challenge - Beside the Sea.

Thank you for popping in and have a lovely weekend, take care, hugs Annette x

Annette, these are all fabulous. The second one is my favourite, it's so clever and I hope you have a wonderful time in Stratford. The colours and design of the first one are so vibrant and the third one is such a lovely little scene. Love the reflection of their little legs and the texture you've added. Beautiful work altogether!
