Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

DLP - What I see clearly now

Long time no blog - I haven't really been at home much on October due to training and a family bereavement so I am WAY behind on DLP. This page is the first week of August's prompt. It's a bit of a mash up between DLP and the free life book lesson that Tam Laporte did.

August Theme
Faces, the Human Form & Characters
August 1
Art Challenge: Expressive Faces
Journal Prompt:  What I see clearly now

I started out with an image and went over it with clear gesso. 

I had put a mix of design paper and washi tape on the other page and painted over the image with acrylic paint and neocolours. It was really hard to do any shading as the paint reacted to any water going over the top of it.

It reads can you see me now?

Hope you have a crafty day/weekend planned!
