Doing the Oriental.............

Hi, this week I have been busy getting some painting done ready for Paint Party Friday, in between washing all the fitted carpets with my Vax machine, ooh they look so much better and they were way overdue to be done.


This large journal page has been painted and stamped in Acrylics.  The Oriental lady was from a hairdressing magazine and then painted over.  Butterflies are paper collaged.   Again have left the journalling out, will fill it in later.

Have just got to give the fitted carpets a second clean and then hopefully will be back to normal, visiting all of your blogs.  My thought for today is..............whoever invented Spring Cleaning should be shot...........just saying...........lol

Thank you for calling in.  Take care of yourselves, Annette x

Have completed a large canvas for Paint Party Friday and can be seen HERE if you would like to see xx

Beautiful image, she is very beautiful and works well on your stunning page:-)

Any type of cleaning is over rated especially if you live in a place that just replaces the dust with more dust... Do like the idea of lovely clean carpets though, enjoy:-) xxx
