Anything Goes


Helloooooooooooooo
Wow what a beautiful few days we have had in SUNNY suffolk so good for the soul.
The wonderful sunny weather has inspired my postcard art cum art journal-ish piece
Unfortunately my photo colour makes it look darker than it is in the flesh

I have painted the background with pale yellow, sage green and pearlised pink
all the colours I see in my garden
spritzed with tattered angels marshmallow

I used a mask for the diamonds using a lilac ink 

I have stamped in chateau grey text and a bird cage it is very pale hard to see in the photo
then stamped swirl in sepia and the butterflies and stamp stamps in purple

Die cut a bird cage and punched butterflies and stamped the title added a few white highlights to finish.

Thank you for looking

I enter this into 
and a new challenge blog 
both asking for Anything Goes


Also made a seascape in fabric, lace and paint and  free motion machine stitch
hopefully it looks like pools of water and sandbanks before the open sea :)



Thank you for looking and commenting which is always appreciated.
Thanks for the lovely comments about my latest bear creations. XXX
