Get your sunglasses out!




If you know me you will know that I am a bit of a "wimpy" colour person, so this is way out of my usual zone.  But I needed the push to try out the wonderful Dylusions sprays I got just after Christmas and the current Artful Times Challenge did just that. 

Colour - lots of it and with gay abandon is the challenge to brighten up these dull grey days.  So here you have it ........  I quite surprised myself and may go down this route again!  Click here to go to the Artful Times blog and some great work and a couple of links to some long forgotten techniques.


This is my last post for a couple of weeks as we are off to Ireland (Co. Clare) tomorrow.  We manage to take in two traditional Irish music festivals and during the week of my husband's workshop I get to enjoy myself painting, knitting and walking.  A great relaxing time. 

Thanks for looking and see you soon x
