SUMMER OF COLOUR WEEK 3

Well...who would have thought I could have squeezed in time to get some art in..it was a very quick one, but still happy to get some paint on my hands...


HAVE THIS WISH I WISH TONIGHT

I love telling Maddie about little things I used to do a s kid..

starlight starbright
first star I see tonight
wish I may, wish I might
have this wish I wish tonight

Call me immature, but even now I do this...of course I know it's not true...heeheehee...but sometimes you just have to...

We have been on the elimination diet, go to fedup.com to check it out...very hard, but it has worked wonders for Maddie....no tantrums in 4 days...yay us...its killing me though as I love vegetables....lol...anyhow, enough of that..

I used just watered down acrylics, a fine sharpee pen, and some glitter glue...nice and quick and simple....

I love all your wonderful comments, so thank you...I almost gave up blogging and art this week...I just got to a point where I thought, I barely have enough time to program and plan for the kids schoolwork, let alone spend two minutes on myself...but...I couldn't keep away from the paint...

OK...here she is...
in shade then in sunlight...





I also decided to quickly do a scrapbook page....Maddie a couple of years ago...red  is one of my favourite colour to scrap with...



Here is Kristin's prompt...

Thanks to the beautiful Kristin ove at TWINKLE TWINKLE
for hosting the sumerof colour, if you do anything creative you should go on over there and join in the fun.
Until next time
lots of it

DEAR PRUDENCE ...choc chip mint for soc...




This is my take on the choc mint over at twinkly twinkle..thanks to the beautiful kristin for hosting the summer of colour...or SOC to we who play along...lol....to be honest I really don't like it at all and that's what i get for trying something different...the background is ok....it just looks sad and doesn't make me happy whatsoever....but i just showed my boys and they seemed to have thought it as great...so there you go...art is different to all who look at it...
i was going to do my usual face that i do and halfway through thought no...i'll try doing something a little different...i didn't want clean lines after all ...i used my fingers for this painting, except where i scratched the pencil onto the page to slighty define some of the features before i went crazy with the white and the glitter...you probably can't see it here...this is quite a dark piece for me to do...and i think i need to go and do a happy one now...lol...
thanks so much for all the wonderful comments from rainbow sherbet...seriously overwhelmed by your lovely words...
ok...until next time
lots of it

ps...update...painted over the scary one and created the tree art....the scrapbook page is one of my favourites of the twins and thought it appropriate to put in with this weeks prompt...

At Last...PPF

So, I held a little bit of a journaling lesson for a gorgeous group of home schooled kids...we were using pen and water colour to do a title page...they did such a great job I felt so proud of them all...but because I was teaching it I never gor to  do one for myself, so I spent a little theraputic time doing mine today...
sorry, the photo is blurry...

The second is for a friends birthday...it's on a ten by ten inch thick canvas...hope she likes it....
Now, summer of colour is starting...this is one of the events that got me started painting.....go check it out...we all love Krirtin...she is an awesome girl who knows how to party...


Ok...thanks Kristin and Eva for the party, being PAINT PARTY FRIDAY...its very fun and gets you painting...

lots of it
