Painted Stones and Cards

Hi, just to announce I have a nice and tidy work space now..............yay........ reorganised and can see where everything is............woo hoo - this has to be the first time ever..........lol

Here are a couple of stones which were salvaged from Mum's garden, they were crying out to be painted on

Kittiwake


Both painted in Acrylics and varnished; the flower has glass bead gel in the centre, which glistens in the sunlight.  They will both go on the wall which surrounds my mother's water feature, just hope she likes them.

This is the card I made for her birthday..............clean and simple

Mum loves White and Silver
One for my youngest daughter's birthday, using my artwork and done in the Klimt style


and another for a crafting friend



Apologies for the picture heavy post.  This is just to prove I have been crafting and not idling away my time.....PLUS I have some new Works in Progress for PAINT PARTY FRIDAY on my ART blog which am showing Thursday....yep am showing off now............lol

Thank you for popping in and leaving comments, take care of yourselves and will see you very shortly.
Hugs Annette x
