If we had no winter then spring would not be so pleasant...


Carried on with my collaged panel today adding more layers with wax and ink. The words read "If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome"...for the milliande spring prompt. Think I might add more layers to this..dont know yet!


My friend Linda is making lots of pink cards for breast cancer research so I found loads of pink paper to give to her and also made a start on some pretty pink cards for this worthwhile charity..really difficult for me to do plain simple cards but I have had a go and no ink or paint in sight!

Hi Lorraine, Oh..this is very pretty! I love the arts against the dark background. :O)

You will never believe it Lorraine..but I used Shona's book as a guide and did my first mixed media/altered art piece. I'd love for you to see it. :o)It's not today's post but yesterdays. Do let me know what you think of it if you get a chance to drop by.
