Little Lighthouse.

This is a painting I did for a post card swap in February.   
The stamps are from Art Impressions Water colour range and I have been watching their videos  on how to use them. I have coloured in using my Marvey Le Plume II water colour pens by scribbling the colours out onto a palette and then picking the colour up with a paint brush. You have to send the postcard as it is so after painting it I left for several days and then sprayed it with Spray and Shine varnish to protect it from  the elements whilst in the post. I made a slight boo boo on this swap as I didn't read right to the end of the instructions and missed the bit which said the theme for the month was 'Faces' . Ooops!!!  I emailed my partner and said to imagine that there was a face peering out of one of the little windows instead.  The swap for March is anything with Wings and strangely enough I have not chosen to do a butterfly!!!



It was lovely weather last week for working in the garden and here are two photos of the what is in flower right now.

  2. Your postcard is gorgeous Valery, I'm sure I can see that face at the window too. Beautiful flowers from the garden, not sure whats happened to my daffodils, but only two bloomed this year.
