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!

Robynartdesigns: Paint and Collage

Paint and Collage

Just popping back after such a long absence 
To share my latest creative adventures
Lots have happened since my last post
Including a long period of creators block
Where I tried many different crafts and made a 
couple of quilts and even some clothes for
myself .
While sorting through my craft room one day
I came across my many boxes of paint & art supplies
just lying around unused.
I then remembered the satisfying feeling of creating 
your own art and how relaxing the process.
So I've been playing around with a new type of art,
for me, known as paint over collage, or something like that
which I find really enjoyable
I've just completed these two decorative boxes

I'm really finding this type of art so
relaxing and enjoyable
It's a type of art where there are few rules
or rights and wrongs
you just put things where you want them
to go in the colours that please you
etc. etc.

So thanks for visiting and
I hope you like these.
I'm considering listing these in 
my Etsy shop for sale.
If you're interested in buying one
before I do this please contact me
via my email button.
I'm linking this post to

Hope you're having a great day xx
