Friday Finish!

This week went by, way too quick, two weeks to go and I still have a lot to do. One thing I did do was, finish my little painting. I messed it up since I couldn't follow the video very well, it kept stalling out on me, so I watched bits and pieces and did my own thing where I had to.

I also used products I had, so the crackle medium I had wasn't right for this technique, so I will have to find the right brand. This one is small, so hard to really watch a video with big strokes and emulate it into a small version, and I just slapped the papers on, so not as neatly done as the larger one. I will have to find a better store for patterned paper, most of the ones I used where too plain and didn't show through. But, I am happy with it anyways, it was fun to do and I will be able to do the larger one and practice with the video this time, so it might take more tries, and I learned a lot about techniques and things I would like to do to expand on it, with my own designs.

I found this old frame and I like how the white makes her pop more. The angel is from the class, Angelic Strokes by Teresa Kogut.


I also worked on my stitchery, getting near the end, but I still have to make the little quilt in the middle and a border, this will be a quilted wall  hanging. A pattern I bought with my winnings, from Kathy Schmitz.


And I traced on the design for the piece, The Greatest Joy by Kathy Schmitz. I am glad my son got me the larger light pad, I needed it and still had to do it in two halves. This will be for our trip, something I can work on at the camp, since it is one color, so less supplies to carry.

I had a hard time with the bottom halves, for some reason they did not line up, so I had to trace and then move things around, hopefully it is straight. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. We have on and off rain but it will be nice to get out for some adventures and take a break from thinking.

I could never do a painting like that. You did very well.

I love all you pieces! I'm especially intrigued with how you chose to use more nature based colours for that Kathy piece. It looks great.

Wonderful work on the angel. Whatever product you used still makes it look ages. Wonderful.

I agree with all the previous comments - your painting is wonderful. Looks like an antique. You can be proud.

I have noticed that my time is flying way to fast as well. I think the angel turned out just lovely and I like your prep for take-along work. I am going to have to start cutting and marking blocks for my summer too.
