Painty playtime

Well it has been a while and I cannot say that I have managed to make anything much of a finished nature .... but I have decided to have a bit more of a play with some of my DecoArt paints and some techniques from Andy Skinner ..

These will be put into a final piece but for today were just the results of some weekend playtime and just getting back into something painty...

so here goes ..

I have followed the steps from the timeworn workshop , which I have re enrolled to and this time its a lifetime access .... all the details can be found on Andy Skinner's blog

I have never tried this one before....and am quite pleased with how it turned out ..

and this is another piece ...

A rusty piece , which I have tried before ...needs a bit more work...

This is a rusty textured piece, but still wet ...and needs a bit more work...

and this wood technique can be found from A Vintage Journey blog, used by Brenda Brown... of bumblebees and  butterflies blog...

and this is a work in progress ...

so there you go, no final make, just some work in progress and some learning in my painty playtime.

keep those fingers inky!
or in this case painty!!

  2. Fabulous Painty playtime results! Trace Looks like a good time was had with those paints and AS.
