Belated christmas greetings to all woyww's. Hope your day was joyous and shared with family and friends. We started the day with a christmas service, then unwrapped gifts, ate lots of delicious food, drank champagne and shared the odd christmas cracker joke. All very quiet in our little family and I am sure the routine was repeated all over the world. Once upon a time I used to take a family pic but, the family flee when they see me with a camera. So what we have is the tree. The good part of a quiet christmas ... I finally finished painting the bee. There was a painful moment when I thought about chucking the bee in the bin and to start painting a cupcake. But, Anna Mason reminds us to push through the ugly duckling stage and keep going until you have a hairy bee.
And this one was hairy. Wishing you all a very Happy 2017.
Finally making a few Xmas cards and using up lots of lovely snowflake die cuts from RosA. Thanks so much RosA I have been hanging on to these until I had an idea. Pinterest once again came to the rescue.
Happy with the end result for a couple of simple cards. Have to move along and make a few more before Xmas is over.
French Bulldog puppy has replaced the bee over the weekend. Painted in watercolour and no background at this stage.
The original image by Arielle Tissier found on Pinterest and it is beautiful with splashes of turquoise paint in the background . My background has a smudge on the right of his paw. A result of trying to add a watermark and a poor attempt to digitally erase. I take a photo in poor light and yet the smudge is crystal clear. Go figure.
The bee is coming along and not causing any problems at this stage. Can't wait to see how Anna Mason tackles the hairs on this little fellow.
