Having Fun

Hi, hope everyone had a great weekend, it sure is cold here at the moment.  Have been having some fun with one of my drawings, incorporating it into a tag/bookmark, which is going to a good blogging friend of mine.


The tag is painted in Acrylics, die cuts (prize from Sweet Stamps), there is Distress Stickles rubbed into the hair.  Unfortunately cannot get it to show up in the photograph which is a shame as it gives a lovely look to the hair.

Here is how she started off........


When am brave enough will draw and paint faces directly onto the tags but for now its cut and paste.....

Would like to share with you a beautiful calendar sent to me from Sandy whose blog is HERE  Full of beautiful designs, thank you so much Sandy.


Thank you for popping in and wishing you a smashing week ahead.  Take care, hugs Annette x

My Paint Party Friday offerings and from the 1st February - 29 Faces will be shown HERE if you wish to see them.  As its 29 Faces in 29 days I won't be on this blog very much as will be scribbling like a woman possessed.............lol x

Sandy said...

She is wonderful Annette and I am particularly fond of the color red. I loved your lady even before you put her on your tag! I will share a little ditty with you ..
Worries are like birds flying over head. You can't stop them from flying, but you don't have to let them build a nest in your hair.
With love -
Sandy
