Arts 'n Crafts : A Burst of Creativity...

Yesterday I dedicated the whole day to painting.  I got quite a lot done too....
My aunt brought this vase to me and asked me to alter it for her.  It had a huge crack on the rim and had been spray painted gold .  In order to disguise the crack I covered the top of  the vase with texture paste. I painted it a winter green then decoupaged the ivy leaves onto it. I painted the stems of the leaves with acrylic paint. I then spackled it with fine gold paint and varnished it.
 I am sorry now that I did not take a "before" picture.

I've had these two large pebbles lying in my studio for ages waiting to be painted.  Yesterday it happened!  I am crazy about the way they turned out!!!! (note to self:  find more large flat pebbles to paint) .

I was in the mood for watercolours so I painted these two simple pieces using Inktense watercolour pencils.
Lots of fun.....
Oh yes .... and I was doodling in my sketch book while watching a movie on TCM ....
and this was the result.

So all in all a very fulfilling creative day - my favorite kind of day!

Wishing you a very happy fulfilling week too.
much love

Just love those pebbles. We used to paint pebbles when we were kids.
