Spread Your Wings & Fly!

Morning lovelies......hope you're all well & had a lovely weekend!
Miss Rebecca & me spent the weekend pottering in the craft room, we've been having
a play with inks, sprays, texture paste, gesso......oooh, all the lovely inky messy stuff! We've
been watching lots of mixed media tutorials, collecting hints & tips from you lovely bloggers
..........and I think we're hooked! Today's make is an 8x8 canvas, I made for Rebecca's wall, I'm 
quite pleased with how it turned out for a 1st attempt! I can see lots of things that aren't
 perfect,  lots of things I'd do different next time but you know what.....I love it, it suits Rebecca 
to a tee & looks fab on her purple bedroom wall! Would love to know what you
think......but be gentle with me lol! We'll definitely be having another play, Rebecca loves 
to draw & has plans to try an art journal!
Rightio, better go catch up on some housework.....thanks for calling!

  5. Oh Wowzer Jo!! this is SO beautiful… love the gorgeous colours and textures… and the netted skirt on the bodyform is so pretty… fab words too… I think you are really awesome at 'getting messy' - I am trying to get into doing stuff like this but keep failing miserably so far. Will keep trying though! Lol
    Hope you have a great week
