love playing around with paint


Made a little tag with some of the painted papers and found this heart stamp which I have stamped on tissue paper and added a little fairy which I got free from Lisas Altered Art..check out the heart theme over at Creavil
Over at the One Little House art site the paint what you see 2nd challenge is to first make backgrounds using just paint, ink and stamps..so had great fun this morning just messing round with paint and some foam stamps I found and my latest love a plastic palette knife....

Have started on a large messy canvas..I had this canvas lying in the shed and it was a very textured dark painting I had done for the Gary Reef site but I like to recycle canvases..so have started off just layering gesso, paints and ripped journal pages on it...dont know if it will end up back in the shed but it might turn into one of my best paintings..lol!
