Always have a little birdie on your shoulder.


Hello everyone,

Hope you are all well out there,

Today I have a painting done on wood for you. Actually,this one is not from my recycled chest of drawers this time but from a piece of Balsa wood I think it was, from Hobbycraft.....a pound...bargain!!




All hand drawn and painted. The flower and background circles are my some of my newly carved stamps.


Actually on the subject of drawing/painting faces, Jane Davenport's new book,Beautiful Faces, is beyond wonderful,worth getting if you want to start doing your own arty face stuff ;)


I am entering this into the following challenges:


Mixed Media Monthly,Birds of a Feather

Country view Challenges,Anything Goes

613 Avenue Create,Anything Goes

Inspiration Destination,Anything Goes

That Craft Place,Mothers Day/Anything Goes

Simon Stamp Weds,Special Lady/Girly



Gesso, Liquitex Paints, Pan Pastels, Luminarte Silks, FC Big Brush Pens. The words are from Tim Holtz's new chit chat stickers.

Hope you like it
