WOYWW 207!! How time is flying...scary!!

Welcome fellow bloggers!  I hope that the last week has been very good to you all :-).  I haven't been up to very much this week, working and having a lazy weekend hehehe.  I was hoping to get a lot more painting done on the weekend, but I didn't!  I am playing around now with my new Gelli Plate that I got in the mail this morning...yipeeee!  So by this time next week I will be able to show you something :-).

Okay taaaaa dummmm (think drum roll here lol) to my desk this week....

On my desk is an unfinished 12" x 12" canvas that I have been playing around with, developing ideas for a class in July. I was thinking that with Christmas looming the girls might like to do a work on canvas as a gift.  Got to keep their interest!!  I have been having fun playing with the canvas and have done one for my sister's birthday last week. What else is on the desk are some stamps that I had ordered in from Stampendous! plus the big acrylic stamping block witch is fantastic!!  Also I got some more moulding paste to add texture on the canvas from my local art shop. 

I have a photo below but it wasn't quite finished as I finished it when I got over to the coast and I FORGOT to take a photo of it all completed!!  But you get the idea from the photo as it was nearly finished, just had to put the antenna on the butterfly and a little bit of writing in black just above the flowers.

Now I am going to get my usual big pot of tea to keep me going around all the wonderful blogs that get together over at General Julia Dunnit over at Stampng Ground!  It is great catching up with people that I now feel have become friends.....have a wonderful week everyone :-)!!!

  7. Oh lovely stuff Janene..trouble is, if I made that canvas, no way would I give it as a present..!! Lovely lovely colours on both canvases, a sight to cheer my eyes!

  8. Lovely indeed! I wish I had been better about taking photos of stuff that went away from me. I recall some projects very basically but wish I could look at them again to recall the actual detail. Heck even now I will sometimes look at something and think "How the heck did I do that??" DOH!
    Happy WOYWW!

  19. G'day Janene
    thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment for WOYWW. Yes the lady painting I did is on a canvas. I'm still not the best at drawing though but I want to do a larger one soon. I've been thinking I may do some of Jane D's on line classes. Have you done any of hers or other on line? Your paintings are gorgeous...I really like the female one with paper hair!!

  20. Very nice canvas', love all the different techniques you used!

  21. Love the flowers and butyterfly - what did you write to go with it??
    Have a great week.
    Margaret #153

  22. Me again - sorry - should check my spelling, shouldn't I? Must do better!! I rather like the thought of a buttyfly, though!

  23. OK, here's the thing, first I am apologizing for not having been around, but I have been uber busy and now I am going to have the audacity to ask you to do a favor for me ( shakes head, I'm shameless ) But I am in a contest and sad to say but it's the truth, it's a popularity vote, so here's the favor...would you be so kind to go over and vote for me? I sure would appreciate it from the bottom of my pitiful heart! lol (vote for the camera, please ) ( waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥ #19

  24. your art is just SO full of life, janene - really gorgeous!
    sorry it's taken so long to reply - the days have just evaporated!
    happy belated WOYWW x

  25. Just realized I owed you a return visit! Almost missed it, didn't I? :) From what I can see on your desk and of the other pic it looks like you are a very talented artist. Love the colors and how well they go together, not clashing or muddy, just vibrant and deep and popping off the canvas! Thanks for visiting me in this WOYWW and I'm sorry I'm so very almost too late to return the visit. :) Deeyll #166
