Well I haven't posted anything for what seems like ages or, it appears painted anything.
My intention every afternoon I come in from work is to do some painting but I am easily dissuaded by cooking .... ironing...pack ups etc and so I really only paint at the weekends and that is usually only on a Saturday as Friday I'm too knackered from the buildup of early mornings during the week (5-00am) and Sunday is generally getting ''stuff'' ready for everyone for a new working week..so they are my excuses and I aint budging from 'em
Oh but I had a lovely surprise on here last week when I received a blog award from Baba from Babasfarmlife it was a ''One lovely Blog'' award and I have to pass it on to upto 15 newly discovered blogs I have found...well that is definitely going to have to wait a while as I want to really take my time and look at some new blogs as I haven't really for quite a long time and I do so love reading others blogs its a wonderful way to pass some time but alas I have no time to pass just yet :)
So I have another box to show you that I did manage to paint last night contrary to what I said earlier, but I really need to buck my ideas up and get my shop open which I am hoping, fingers crossed I will before Monday eeeeeeeeeeeeek there I've said it
This one is green with a pale pink rose and the words 'Love' and 'Dream' on opposite sides....I have distressed it and given it a aged look with a coat of diluted down Burnt umber ...it just dulls it down a bit.
Inside I painted it cream with a wash of the Burnt umber and I think it looks ok :)
DD has said this is her favourite and wants me to paint a blank jewellery box like it so we'll see
Now I am just trying to decide what to paint on 2 blank canvases I found that I had forgotten about...it will either be 2 'Pin up gals' thinking maybe bathtime ones or 2 more modern females...but they will be to sell seperately or as a pair, so off to put my thinking hat on its been misplaced recently x
