Experiments with home-made papers…

Fancied a break from my busy schedule creating for all the festivals coming up so decided to use some of my home designed papers, see through papers and a bit of the Orient – all framed with painted embellishments from my glue gun. Am quite pleased with the result so intend to do more when I get time – could be good for a winter market.


Watercolour Workshop

Watercoulor is a relatively new media for me as I usually find the colours insipid. But, marrying them with Brusho and using squeezed out colour directly onto the paper gave really lovely effects – here are some of the examples we did messing about.

Trying out these new pens to add highlights and negative space in this Brusho painting


Could this be a Monet painting in progress??
