Posting a day of Disasters

Yep definitely disasters, it started when I tried to follow the sketch at Rogue Redheads this month........am definitely a Sketch Dyslexic, but Sharon Bliss assured me she wasn't one to curtail creativity...........(methinks this statement was very tongue in cheek.....lol )


I think one of  the beautiful birds is saying to the other...... "do you think we are going to fall off this branch" ?                                                 
The other one replies "...........nah......just hold on tight!!!! "
Stamp from the new Rogue Redhead Designs This N That plate

Then I altered a previous 4 x 6 watercolour into a postcard to enter into the Unrulys Challenge then properly read the challenge where they are asking for Edgy and Artful Masterpieces...........and this is definitely NOT a masterpiece.............lol


Stamps by Joanna Sheen

Yep another disaster............cannot link this to the Unrulys Challenge.........not to worry!
PS.  Methinks I have just done it, fingers crossed

Am also entering this postcard into the Word Art Wednesday Challenge........... (so thats good)

On top of all this I made a Paperbag Tree as shown on Pininterest, but cannot photograph it as it keeps falling over........oh well will try again............

Am also over at Paint Party Friday today and if you would like to see my offerings go HERE

Some you win and some you lose a'int that a fact, but we all keep trying and as long as we can laugh at ourselves and not take it too seriously then it really doesn't matter............

Thank you for dropping in on this hot summers day.  Take care of yourselves and will see you soon, hugs Annette x

By popular request of 2 bloggers............lol  am showing the awful and I mean awful Paperbag Tree

Hey Netty, don't do yourself down, I happen to love both of your makes here, and thanks for the laugh about the bird's conversation, though I actually think they are placed perfectly. Shame you couldn't photograph the bag, never heard of them and am now feeling curious... Have a lovely day!

Rita said...

Beautiful cards Annette. Wish I could paint like you. Have a Good Day. Hugs Rita xxx

You are so funny! These are both fabulous! Love the black and white, and the soft colors of the other.

Valerie-Jael said...

You have made some lovely stuff, I want to see that bag tree though....Valerei

Netty said...

OK will show the terrible paper bag tree, have managed to keep it upright, will add it on in a min x

Valerie-Jael said...

What is awful about that tree?? Nothing, Sweetie! Valerie

Krisha said...

Hi Netty,
Check out the RAQ #2, post card with a vacation theme. I think your painted PC would fit there! The love birds are adorable and JUST WHAT IS WRONG with your tree?? I think it is cute.

PetraB said...

nothing looks awful to me, this is all very creative and these are absolutely fabulous projects .... not sure where the disasters are ....

Patti J said...

Well. First, there is nothing awful about your tree! I only wish I had a tiny portion of your talents! Your cards AND your tree, are, indeed masterpieces! Don't be so hard on yourself :-) we are our own worst critics! Hugs...

Asia King (aka Joanna K) said...

coops said...

stunning cards netty.especially love the birds and your paper bag tree looks fabulous, will have to go check out pinterest now :D

xx coops xx

Annette said...

You are to funny Netty, love the cards and the paper bag tree. falling over or not. It is pretty. sometimes disasters turn into wonderful creations. Have a great weekend my dear. xoxoxox

Carol Q said...

funny how we all view things differently Netty - I just love your paperbag tree - it's really quirky and such an interesting shape (and that's not a sarcastic comment!) the birds look just fine to me - I thought you'd meant to place them like that, and your second card, well who cares, it's just plain cute!

Meggymay said...

Hey don't be so hard on yourself, both these look Fab.
The paper bag tree looks great as well,
Have a good weekend.

Silvia(Barnie) said...

These are wonderful pieces.

Joan said...

I see no disasters only more of your lovely creations! Like them all but the postcard one is just delightful, need to know more about the paperbag tree ?

Terry said...

Both are so lovely, Netty! Stop beating yourself up my creative and fun friend! Enjoy the weekend!

2amscrapper said...

personally I love your creations although I'm a bit perplexed by the paperbag tree. I must find that on Pinterest. Anyway, I think your seaside postcard is beautiful! Certainly it's edgy since they are standing at the edge of the water :)
I got a real chuckle out of the birds' conversation. Right now my stamping counter is full of oopsies which I must clean up tomorrow.

Ella said...

I like everything you made-especially love the paper bag tree ;D

I agree you are being hard on yourself! @>------

Gay Peplow said...

Brilliant Annette, (me too, I'm not good at sketches:D )the birds are fab and I love the B/W theme.
Your postcard is very sweet :D The paper bag tree is inspirational just think how many folks will go off now and make one of their own :D Have a wonderful weekend my friend, x

Mrs.B said...

You should have added the bird conversation to your card - brilliant.
Your paperbag tree looks very interesting, haven't seen one before.
Have a great wekend.

This has such a lovely vintage feel to it and I personally think you did a great job with it. They always say that "we are our own worst critic" and I know that others see the beauty in your art and are blessed by it, so you just keep on creating the art God lays on your heart to create. He has obviously given you MUCH talent and I'm SO grateful that you are sharing that talent with us by playing along in our challenge. I look forward to seeing more of your lovely art, and hope that you're having a great week.
Blessings to you!

Oh Netty you make me giggle! Love that seaside postcard and I'm sure the birds will survive on their branch :) Keep smiling, and crafting. Hugs, Jenny x

Vicki said...

Beautiful projects, Annette! I think they are all masterpieces!

Nan G said...

We do tend to be our own worse critics. :) Love the birds, hold on tight my dear. Tehe.. The painted one is fab and should be linked to UPA RAQ2 as it definitely fits that challenge. Hugs

1CardCreator said...

Your postcard is a masterpiece dear Netty! Your little love birds must have gotten a bit spunky to make them fall, and your tree is lovely. We all have days where everything we touch goes wrong in our minds so I know how you feel. On to better days! ~Diane

Karin said...

both of your cards are beautiful!
have a great summer!

butterfly said...

Hmm... I definitely think "disasters" is overstating it by some way, Annette!! The birds are very sweet in their elegant b&w setting, and the seaside scene is delightful.

And I'm so glad you posted the picture of the paperbag tree in the end - it's a wonderful make... just prop it up with something!!
Alison xx

Laurie said...

I'm catching up, I think all your work is a masterpiece! I agree with Butterfly, its beautiful, just prop it up!!

Andrea C said...

That paperbag tree is fantastic. I can imagine it in a gallery or for a bridal display x

She King said...

Hi Netty, 2 fantastic creations. I love your 'Birdies'. Your 'Paperbag Tree' made me smile :-) XXX

Ayala Art said...

What can I say? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... I think they are all fine, even your "awful" tree, which I think is whimsical :oD
The birdies are so cute, and your bird comments hilarious!
