Welcome Friends

Out of the Journal - Week 2

It's good for me to have 
challenges like this one, 
it helps to focus my butterfly brain.

I enjoyed Week 2 with
Dina Wakley's
and I did this one for my friend, 
Carmenover at Whoopidooings.
She is expecting a baby and has 
been suffering with the heat.
She's discovered that the only way 
for her to cope is to consume 
vast quantities of ice pops!

I painted this on a 5"x7" canvas board,
and used; 
acrylic paint, 
water soluble wax crayons,
oil paint sticks, 
POSCA paint pens, 
charcoal pencil,
and Glossy Accents.

I used Glossy Accents to make 
it look icy cool.

Thank you for dropping by :)


ps Carmen, this will be in the 
post to you on Monday!

    Jo, the colors (colours!) are extraordinary! The blend of yellow-orange with that perfect blue background. Wow! I am so loving this one! I'm sure it will give Carmen a nice boost! You are talented AND thoughtful.

    I love it- perfect summer canvas. I really like how you can see the layres through the ice pop painting. This reminds me of a vintage advertisement.

    Oh wow - here I'm sat, melting but wanting to catch up on the blogs... and I see this! You are lovely Jo :D I adore it :DLove the colours... and that blending as always sends me in a jealous tizz!

    And I totally showed myself up at the weekend eating an ice-lolly while walking around the bootfair, oblivious to it melting all down my top! Can't take me anywhere :D

    Thank you, thank you, thank you :D
