Crafty January Pennant (1 of 12)

Hi, have had a lovely month off just to paint and will show some of what I've worked on in January later on in the post.  But first would like to show you a Pennant made using some of Crafty Individual products.


It is 8inches long and 4 and a half inches wide (at the top), made from strong card, gesso, acrylic paints, strips of lace and bits and pieces from stash with punched eyelets for hanging.  Am sure you recognise the Crafty Individual stamps (stamped on speciality paper).  Am making a pennant for each month of the year and then will be giving them away to blogging friends at the end of it.  This is for the month of January.

Am entering this into the February challenge at Crafty Individuals in the hope of winning one of their new stamps - got my eye on the two ducks or they could be geese, so fingers crossed my friends.....

Here is a selection of my artwork for January.  Last Thursday I started painting Flowers and they can be seen HERE......thats if you would like to see them.


Thank you for visiting and supporting my new Art Blog which has thrilled me no end.  Have a great week despite this cold weather we are having in the UK at the moment.  Take care of yourselves, hugs Annette xx

How did you ever get so much done in such a short time? All great work as well. The month went incredibly fast though didn't it?

The pennant is lovely-soft, very different from your paintings and their vibrant effect. That's what is so good about art though-we can create in any way our muse allows us.~
