In case any of you missed yesterdays post, July is World Watercolour Month. You can find out more about this, here:- Doodlewash <—click. The challenge is to paint a watercolour a day for the month of July. Now I know I won’t be able to paint a watercolour every day, but I’m going to try my hardest to paint as many days as possible and share them on the blog here.
Yesterday was a pot of Auriculas. Today is the turn of … Petunia Pig.
Petunia is a folky sort of girl, a Gloucestershire Old Spot (a pedigree pig) – who has a love of grass and any thing she can eat in order to keep her fine figure.
Aw, enough of me waffling. I shall share Petunia with you … She’s painted in watercolours, on 140lb watercolour paper, and she’s in ATC/ACEO size – so just 2.5″ x 3.5″.
No longer the baby … she’s a big girl now. 😀
Hope your Sunday was peaceful and that you found something to smile about. Have a lovely rest of your day!
Happy Monday! I hope your week gets off to a great start and continues in that fashion.
I’m here to share a little, easy to put together card today. Although I have a plentiful supply of ready folded and scored craft (Kraft) cards and I absolutely love cards which are made using them … I very rarely seem to make a card with them. It’s the strangest thing. I always reach for white card! Why is that I wonder? Bugs the life out of me!
Anyhoo …. I made this card... consisting of some hand painted (by me) folksy style roses on black card, matted and layered onto some die cut white and pink card, then fixed to a 5.5″ square Kraft/Craft card, and with the addition of a warm pink grosgrain ribbon.
The central ‘picture’ of the single rose, is an enamelled brad, which I fixed onto a circle of die cut white card, and then attached it to the inside of the card. (with the addition of some bakers twine tied into a bow)
Finally, I added some pink enamelled dots to the corners of the front of the card and VOILA! A circle of roses on a card …. which will fit into a regular envelope!
And that’s all there was to it!
Mondays can be really miserable days …. but only if YOU let them be. Make up your mind to have a great day today. It’s a choice. Make the choice.
I wish you a truly lovely day. Please . . . share a smile with someone. Your smile could make a whole lot of difference to someone’s day.
Sending you love and squidges …. and sharing a smile with you 😀
