This week has been crazy busy. I have been trying to get some artwork done but things just keep popping up each day to stop me.

I did however manage to finish this piece on Tuesday. I will be putting prints of it up on my Etsy store later today. I think it turned out well. I love how the tissue paper gives it texture.

8"x10" flat gallery wrapped canvas


I also received a couple of blog awards from the wonderful Annette Quirke. Thank you so much for these awards Annette. If you haven't seen her blog yet pop over and check out her wonderful artwork, you won't be disappointed :)

For the Kreativ Blogger award I need to list 7 things that I love -

1. Painting
2. Roast Dinners
3. Newly washed bed sheets
4. My family and Partner
5. Art shopping
6. My morning coffee
7. Day's at the beach

For both of these Awards I would like to give them to all of my followers. I appreciate all of your supportive and encouraging comments. You all mean a lot to me :)

You are not obligated to take these awards if you don't want to. It is just a fun way of spreading the love.

Have a great day everyone!

Love your finished piece. Also inspired by your use of black. I use a lot of black in my pieces but I usually add it at the end. So inspired by your creative genius I have started a piece with black as the base colour. Will see how it goes. Will keep you posted. Anyway you piece is fab and the use of tissue paper is also great. I love using this technique.
