Canvass Angel

It's time again for the party that is  Paint Party Friday (PPF) I love this challenge, as long as there's paint you can enter. And it and the people that join in are so inspirational and just make you want to pick up those brushes and get excited about paint ;0) And here is my piece, a canvass 9 x 12 this was so much fun to create.

This painting glows and is so ethereal, I really got on the canvas what I wanted the painting to express, and this is a wonderful new concept for me when it comes to canvass lol If you can't actually join in I really suggest yhou have a look at the entrants there is some amazing work out there. Love Dawn xx

The start of Christmas

Hi, do you have family far away that you don't often get to see? Well I do, as I am sure many of you do to. I was thinking about this and came up with this tag. I thought it would be nice to add to a gift, there are some Christmas colours in there but it doesn't much look like a Christmas tag so to speak. I just loved this image and wanted to use it so much lol. I have cut an extra band of her hat and added it to give a little lift. I love the short hand, the green is two colours of colour wash I love spraying these about they make fab backgrounds.

The paper used for the text is actually old magazine crushed up and then gessoed, to mute the colours, so it's not just plain paper and there are shades of green etc to blend with the tag.

I was messing around with some distress inks just swiping them on some tags and thought I would make a few quick tags for gifts as well. But they also fit in to a challenge Less Is More as they are thinking about stars this week. The star was a great free stamp form a magazine I have on subscription. Thank you for stopping by as always I love to see & hear from you. Oh can I just mention that I have a new challenge for the month of November over on Journal Journey's I do a challenge on the 1st of each month but there are also lots of other journaling goodies to share I hope you can stop by Love Dawn xx
