Having fun with Decopatch

Hi, sorry about not being around much but have been busy getting ready for my end of term Art Show.  Plus those dreaded hospital visits which take up so much time.

In between painting I decopatched this Elephant, I think I bought it from the Craft Barn.

Well I had to have fun with him didn't I !


Also had a card to make for one of my Grand-daughters


The gorgeous stamp was part of a prize from the lovely Fuchsia and have been keeping it for the girls birthday cards.

Will definitely be catching up with you all later.  Have just got to photograph my paintings ready for Thursdays (21st Feb)  where the subject is trying to paint Water and am finding quite hard.

Thank you for popping in.  Take care of yourselves and see you soon, Hugs Annette x

Netty...two great projects. Your elephant turned out so cute. Did you cover her with napkins or tissue paper? Lovely! The card you made for your granddaughter is gorgeous. It should be framed!
