This is a cropped shot of Pebeo Fantasy Prisme paint. I poured Turquoise and Purple onto a glass coaster and left them to mingle and work their own magic. I love the result, it’s almost cell like and the colours are fabulous.

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all the lovely people who are following my blog. 19 of you in the last month plus all my friends who check in via Facebook and friends and family who have followed me for a while now. WOW! I’ve been suffering with intense dental pain for the last week and whilst I’ve not done much else apart from try to sleep whilst propped upright on the sofa and read a bit, all your visits to my blog have kept me going and have given me something to focus on. I’m off to teach 5 free workshops a day at NEC ( National Exhibition Centre) Birmingham next week for 4 days for Pebeo UK and am really looking forward to it. If you are visiting the Hobbycrafts Show I will be on stand D06, pop along and say hello and come and play in the fantastic workshops. Will blog about it on my return. I’ll schedule my daily posts whilst I’m away, so keep coming back daily if you are a regular or chance visitor.  It means a tremendous amount to me that others are interested in my view of life and the things I love.

Love and light

These are all the lovely products I will be using in my workshops! I even got to choose the colours…. yes there is turquoise, shocking pink and purple included. If you have never tried Pebeo before don’t hesitate, their products are fabulous. Click on the photo for a better look.

Another double spread in my little quote book. I used water soluble wax pastels by Reeves and Neo Color II crayons for the background. I stamped the trees with Pebeo Touch paint and added embossing powder to the wet paint and heated it. The little picture was from an old calendar and I trawled the internet for the quote.  “If you would know strength and patience, welcome the company of trees”. Sometimes I find the quote first, sometimes I make the page first and find a quote to fit. I’m looking for a quote about Cherry Trees, has anyone got a good one I could use?

Here is a close up shot of the top section of the painting I altered recently. I love the blend of colours and the richness of the gold leaf which  I have tried to balance by adding Gold Touch around each heart. I also used Pearl White Touch to give dimension to the white lettering. I added stencilling to 4 of the hearts by applying a mixture of different coloured acrylic paint with a damp baby wipe.

Well here it is! I finished titivating this picture last night and I am thrilled with it. I really enjoyed drawing with Pebeo Touch. It brings out all the detail that I wanted. I also like the stenciling which makes some of the hearts look a bit different. Next job is to decide where on this wall I’m going to hang it!

A days teaching today and I was in a creative mood too. Whilst tidying my desk I discovered a stack of half completed ATC’s and had great fun embellishing them. The first one (top left) was created with Touch textile paint by Pebeo and abandoned because I didn’t like the colours. I re-coloured the background with Pro Markers and then I added extra Touch Paint around the edges. The second(top right) was created with Distress inks direct to paper. I then drew on top with a Metallic brush pen, created a flower with a stencil and finished with a pearl in the centre. The third (bottom left) was originally stamped with Touch paint and sprinkled with ultra fine glitter. I resurrected it with Touch in Pearl colours which I applied with the tube and a paint brush.  Last but not least was a gold heat embossed image of a poinsettia which I coloured in with Pro Markers and then adorned with Stickles glitter glue. I didn’t like it so I sanded it down when dry and removed some of the glitter. I added word stamps where appropriate and used Touch black Metal paint with a fine glitter glue nib attached to enhance the wording.
