Playing With Pretty Papers

This week I've made a couple of projects using
pretty papers, paint, stamps, vintage buttons,
laces and embellishments
I first painted this tissue box using white acrylic paint
When this dried I began collaging with
a variety of papers from my stash
I chose this beautiful image of a vintage girl with umbrella
from Paper Whimsy. I used this as the main image
around all sides with different smaller
images, embellishments and painted
texture around it

I was happy with the end result
and really enjoyed the process
I now have a one of a kind pretty 
tissue box for our spare room
Have a great week
I've just linked this to
Shabbilicious Friday Link Party
Pop on over and you'll find lots of beautiful projects

First Painting for Lifebook 2016

I've finally completed my first painting for the Lifebook 2016 class I've recently joined
I've always wanted to learn how to paint faces
and thanks to Tams great lesson
I've been able to make a satisfying start
This one is titled The Happy Traveller - a lesson from
 Tamara Laporte at Willowing Arts 
The painting has a personal meaning for me with representations of things I want to take with me on my journey throughout 2016

This one is going to sit in my art room
to inspire and mark the beginning
of my art journey
Here's to new beginnings!
