A Christmas Robin with a Leanne Twist........


Hi there!

Here I am as promised with another of my paintings - this one is a Robin with a bit of a Leanne twist!!!!

Well, I like to be a little bit different!!!!

I have painted this one from a royalty free image but of course, jazzed all the colours up!

Painted in watercolours and my usual trusty pastel pencils with some white posca pen.

I shall be using this one as some of my Christmas cards this year.

Hope you like it,

Pink Ink Designs samples to share.........


Hey there!

I am sharing today two creations that I've made with Pink Ink Designs stamps - the first one is a sample that I made for them for their TV shows on Hochanda using the Twinkle Toes stamp set and the second one is a sample that I made using Nip and Duck stamp set for their competition that ran up to early October which was "reflections".

I'll try and share some of my other more recent Pink Ink samples over the coming weeks.

Thanks for stopping by,

Mid Month Reminder for We Love Chocolate Baroque Challenge for "Anything Goes"


Hi there!

Here I am with your mid month reminder for our We Love Chocolate Baroque Challenge and our theme this month couldn't be easier - it's Anything Goes!!!

Here I have used Chocolate Baroque's Autumn Edges stamp set which has several "edges" on it and I have used the mushrooms edge. I particularly liked this stamp as it's so suitable for cards or home decor for both men and women.  The sentiment is also Chocolate Baroque.

Coloured with distress inks on top of a distress ink background using nice autumnal colours.

Hope you can come over and join us here the link for you:-

Time to share a painting I think....... Who's a pretty boy then....


Hi there!

Well where have I been?  Time passes so quickly and my blogging just gets pushed further back!

To be fair, I've had builders here at home for over two months and it has been nothing short of chaos and will be for probably a further couple of months!

I did manage to escape it all last week and had a lovely week down in Cornwall (much needed) and although the weather was rough for the first part, it got better as the week went on thank goodness!

So, I had anticipated the weather and took my art materials with me.  It's a bit like cooking with me, I sooo enjoy doing it when I've got the time to properly do it!!!!

So, here was the first painting that I did and I've called it "Who's a pretty boy then" - I wanted to push myself to a subject that isn't an easy one with all the markings that are involved - a budgerigar!

I was quite pleased with how this one came out, painted in watercolour and finished in pastel pencils with a little help from some Faber Castell markers.

Hope you like it, I know that some of you like to see what I'm up to other than my paper crafting. I am going to set some time aside today to schedule some posts of the other paintings that I've done recently and while I was away.

Thanks for stopping by,

New theme for We Love Chocolate Baroque - Anything Goes!


Hello there and welcome to the first Sunday of October! You know what that means? - It's a new theme over on the I Love Chocolate Baroque challenge and this month it's the best one of all - Anything Goes!

Here I have used Chocolate Baroque's Honey Bee stamp set but I have only used the two foxgloves that are in the set.  I stamped them with a Kaleidacolor ink pad so get the lovely colours and then pulled the colour out with a slightly damp brush, then over stamped some of the larger ones at the front with a touch of Versafine ink and left the others without it.  The background is simply distress ink swept across with a stencil brush.

I do hope you'll come over and join us - here's the link for you:-
