My leave from work began yesterday, two whole weeks of doing what I want, so I am crafting and enjoing every minute of it. I did sort out a box of 'stuff' that has been lurking under my bed for months. It was full of those bits and pieces that I'd sidelined in favour of new item, like pattened papers. I found a few sheets of K&Co 6x6 papers and this poppy one was amongst it. I've always loved this paper but could never successfully make anything with it, until I came up with this piece. I chopped up the sheet of paper and played around until I liked what I saw. I then made my background using several layers of acrylic paints and basically put the two together.
It is really a miserable day outside, heavy rain and bitter cold but this piece just shouts sunshine to me and had put a smile on my face.
Thanks for looking an thankyou for taking time to leave comments, I really appreciate it.
