And now for something completely different



By request.  Certainly is different for me :)
Maybe it will get there, maybe it won't!

Some pics





Went out for a walk with camera the other day.  Was a gorgeous sunny day.  A few pics to mark the occasion :)  (I don't get out much lol)

I think i'm done with this



I think it might need some wording or something....but i'm not so good with the mixed media.  I am kinda battling with myself at the moment over my style and what i want to achieve.  I have looked at much mixed media on etsy and would love to be able to do that!  But i can't.  I think i have to give into the 'i am what i am' thing.

So....bin it...keep it????


I am so unsure of this new painting.  I'm persevering but not sure.  Should i keep it???  Paint over it???  I suppose i'm a little disheartened of late....i've listed so many different items......all different prices.  But i guess my stuff is just not good enough to purchase :)  Still....i enjoy it :)  Keeps me sane and gives me a purpose in this groundhog day life ;)

My Felt Heart!



Arrived today!  I loved this as soon as Karen (Purplecatscorner) listed it!  And i've bought it....and has pride of place :)  She also sent me a lovely little fridge magnet toooooooo :D
Thanks Karen

4 Days off work!


Woohoooooo.....and this is what i'm going to be doing :)


Nooooooo.....not tidying this mess.....but doing this :)



Its getting there!

New canvas!!!!  Big canvas!!!!!!  New paints :)  Courtesy of oh thinking bout me today :)
Pencil out....roller.....blob some paint...and bobs your uncle!  Not great pics as got my macro lens on my camera and too damned lazy and hands covered in paint to change it.  (Also got a blob of paint on living room floor :o  whoops)

Am on a roll




With these little peeps.  I know...they're not my best work....but am enjoying :)

So....made a little bookmark :S hehehe

Notelets




I'm really loving these little characters for some bizarre reason.  I love the colours, the lines, the simplicity of them.  They are very raw and enjoyable to draw.  So......i've made three little notelets that will be available on Etsy.

Some more





Obviously a little older here :)

LOOK WHAT I FOUND!




I decided to go in my mums loft the other day and dig out some of my old art work....see if i can revamp it and maybe put it in the box ready for the possible 'art thingy'.  I found some really really old work!!!!  They must have been done when i was about 10!  The drawing of they lady.....i remember being soooooo pleased with it.  But i was only 10 hehehe.

A few doodles




I should get on and do something more productive...but i keep going into my little room and painting more!!  And its all coming out really badly :)

So i've added a couple of pics of doodles i've done today, yesterday and a few weeks back.

Messing around



This morning i have been playing around with paint and bubble wrap and stuff......have totally lost the flow with my other painting....so thought i'd have a break and just play :)  These are the results.

How honored do i feel :)

I have graciously accepted this 'one lovely blog' award from EllieFitz.

How sweet to even be considered!!!  And comes after a frustrating couple of days painting :)  Has cheered me up no end!  Thank you!   And i look forward to searching for 15 more lovely blogs to pass it on to :)

Frustration


I don't think i'm cut out for all this art/painting/creating stuff. I feel quite frustrated at the moment and don't know how to move forward with this painting. I know in my head how i wanna paint...but i cannot do it.
I am thinking about having an art exhibition/sale in November this year....and was extremely hyped up about it the other day.....but i'm not so sure now. I don't want to make a fool of myself.
