WOYWW #222

Anyone remember that show Room 222?? I used to love that show - am I showing my age!!

Anyhoo - its WOYWW time and I am rushing to post before I fall asleep LOL...

I had very positive responses to a card I created using inks and watercolour pencils during the week  - it was my first attempt at what I have labelled "freehand" painting... IRL people have commented it looks like a "printed scene"... I assure you its not!
You can see the details HERE...

So I am having another go and this is what is on my work desk right now...
At this stage only versacolor, Stampin Up and distress inks have been used...
I will tweak with my artists watercolour pencils and aqua brushes shortly...
I have this one pegged as a path through a forest  scene... will post properly when its all done...

And finally my little Smokey is getting very irritated at having to move off my work desk - which is weird as it is only the 2nd time I have had to get her to shift... here she is giving me one of her looks!!

If you would like to know more about this weekly jaunt around creative desks of the world pop on over to Stamping Ground where our lovely hostess Julia Dunnit will give you all the goss!!

Thanks for stopping by... Mxx

  12. Your snowcapped mountains look fabulous and I can't wait to see your forest scene finished. Smokey is just gorgeous if only our pets could speak. Have a great week! Danie #25

  13. never heard of Room 222, but I didn't watch much tv until I got out of grad school a few years ago. That is a gorgeous card. And I adore that background you have started. I wouldn't add anything to it, though (grin).

    Bleubeard is jealous. He thinks Smokey is gorgeous and is far more photogenic than he is! Happy WOYWW on Thursday from #2

  14. It DOES look like a printed image; can't wait to see what the next one looks like.

    Your cat is so cute!

  15. Some weeks are better than others. I just appreciate the visit. Peg at
