Free on Friday 21 September 2018

Welcome to another Free on Friday, another rush to post before Friday ends :)  Today I have been making books for my daughter's Rainbow group.  I am making a Fairy book for a weekend away they are having.  The book will have pages of Fairies to colour in and also they will have Fairy crafts.  A bracelet and a wand.  I have nearly finished the books themselves and then tomorrow I will find some fairy pictures to go in them.

There is just one more girl in a bonnet to come.  This one is reading a card and as before I have done 3 versions for you.

We have the grandchildren staying for the weekend, they are usually very good and I get to watch the Disney films with them :)
Have a great weekend x

Free on Friday 14th September 2018

A warm welcome to Free on Friday and a huge apology for being missing in action last week.  The house has been in an upheaval what with coming home last week, having a new shelf in my craft room and having a new carpet.  Somehow I still had problems getting everything back in my craft room.  I didn't buy that much when we were away :)   Apart from a few odd bits it is nearly all put away so I am looking forward to getting back to crafting!

Today I have another girl in a bonnet for you, this looks as if she is fishing for hearts.  She seems to have quite a few in her basket already :)

We have had lovely weather this year for our time away, but it is good to be back home.  See you soon x

Praising the Lord watercolour

I did this watercolour today,  I had been doing a little abstract design representing a person praising (about an inch or so),  I still have to finish that one as I decided to do a bigger version.  This is nearly A4. 

 After I finished the painting I wanted to do some decorative work with a fine pen, but I was worried about doing it and spoiling the watercolour.  So using PSE I did the decorative work.  I thought I would do another watercolour and use a pen on that.

I am entering this in Craftsdreamy challenge 
and the Twisted Thursday challenge at The Outlawz

Tomorrow is Free on Friday, I would love if you joined me then.

Happy Fish

These are my Happy Fish and they do make me very happy :)

I am entering this painting in the Craftsdreamy challenge and also in the Twisted Thursday Challenge at The Outlawz.

Happy Birds Watercolours

Clarissa Hagenmeyer helps people paint with advice and courses.   Her site is in German, but the Google auto translator works well.  Her newsletters are also in German and my Gmail account translated those too.  Her site in English should be up soon.  I did two of her free courses, happy birds and happy fish. and I was very happy with the results.  I watched the videos and did these painting a fortnight later.  I didn't want to copy her exactly so I did them without further reference to the videos.  I used Derwent watercolour sticks and a fine pen.  This is the first time I have really used these watercolour sticks.  I am not sure I like them, but I am sure I will by the time I have used them up :)

I am entering these in the Festive Friday Challenge at the Outlawz
