All things bright and beautiful....

Well Happy Good Friday afternoon everyone!!
Unbelievable after the last week of weather but I am actually sat out in my garden writing today's Blog !! I am lucky as it is a pretty sheltered suntrap here and doesn't need much to feel almost Mediterranean - ha ha!

So this week I have mostly been playing with houses....
This first card comes from THE fabulouso Art Houses stamp set by Sam Poole. I am totally diddly gaga about these stamps (means I likes!!!! lol).

These little Flowers are all created from the doorway of one of the stamps....

....and the bright and breezy background has been created using Acrylic paints and Splodgeaway's Pebbly mask.

Today's second offering is from the clarity stable.....
This uses the new classroom trees (with a twist!) along with Quirky cottages 1 and 2 and the Gate. The bright colours are achieved with a mix of H2O watercolours, Inktense bars and Copic markers.

 The fence panels are hand drawn to finish the landscape.
I was aiming for a Clarice Cliff style but its been suggested I may of gone more " Hockney" - I'll take either!! Rofl

Well that's all for today, I hope you have lots of relaxation planned for the long Easter weekend, have a fab time whatever you are doing.

Crafty cheers for now




Ps look who gate crashed the photo sesh.....
