Got some paint onto the pieces I produced at the Lynda Monk workshop on Wednesday, but not too happy with the results. This was a piece of Lutradur which had been thermofax printed with Xpandaprint then zapped with an heat gun. It is painted with a mixture of acrylic paint and cosmic shimmer spray.
Far from happy with this postcard sized piece. It has had gesso and white acrylic paint applied before colouring it with a variety of things. It has become a messy blob. May have to paint over it and start again. The background is actually reasonable, but the lacey fragrment is terrible. I have also started to paint the tube, but it needs more work and I am afraid the lovely sunny weather meant I spent a lot of time in the garden digging up what was once a brick drive where I now want to lay some lawn.
The crocus I planted in the front garden, to remind me of the large swathes of them on the Stray in Harrogate, have now decided to burst open and put on a lovely display. However, another squirrel is stealing my bird food at the moment and is proving to be very wiley.
