Afternoon lovely crafty friends. Phew I haven't been on here for ages. Blogger lost all the blogs I follow for weeks and although they said they would return eventually of their own accord I felt completely adrift as I couldn't see what everyone was up too. Well last night, hurray, you all returned, where have you been?? I have missed you terribly.
Just to prove I haven't been craftless as well as friendless, I wanted to share with you a canvas I've been playing with.
I'm a big fan of Finnabair and have wanted to try her style for a long time but haven't really known where to start but after getting some inspiration from Pinterest I had a go.
I enjoyed rummaging through stuff I've had for years and actually using it, all those things that have gone out of fashion or you wonder why on earth you bought them, it was very good therapy.
I painted everything with black gesso and then had a compete panic that I'd completely ruined it
but once I started to apply acrylic paints, followed by some Luminarte silk paints and Glimmer mists followed by some gilding wax I was quite pleased. There are areas I don't like and things I would definitely do differently next time but it was a good learning exercise and ages since I've been able to play just for the sake of it. I must do it more.
Right I need to catch up with all the posts I've missed so hopefully I'll see you at a blog near you very soon.
Thanks for popping by and Happy Crafting.
