Turquoise Blue Face Vase on a Bright Sunny Day

Thanks for all your lovely comments and for the new likees on Facebook! I update my Facebook page on an almost daily basis as it's so easy to upload (lets hope that's not tempting fate!) If you haven't already, come over and say hello, I'd love to see you! :)
I like to do a blogpost every few days too, bringing all the things I've been doing up together.
Here's an art journal page I made...


I used a texture medium and stamped into it with plastic stamp shapes, adding layers of paint. I love how the relief catches the colour leaving the background showing through. I must do more of it on my next painting because I do enjoy doing it. I've always done this technique on paper but I'm sure it would work on canvas too, even with the springiness, don't you think?


I've finished this one and loved using the bright cheerful colours. When I took it to the kitchen to take a photo, I realised it has the same colours are one of my favourite cups! I thought they'd look quite pretty standing next to eachother, especially with a few little flowers from the garden. I didn't want to pick too many, we don't have too many of those as yet!
It's on a box style canvas and measures 6 x 6 inches (15 x 15cm). I've fixed wire across the back so it's ready to hang on your wall.


The vase is a lot more vivid turquoise in real life. I tried to adjust the colour on the computer but it didn't want to change so you have to imagine a nice string bright greeny-blue if you please.

 I've listed it in my Etsy shop if you'd like to see, please click here. :)
The sun is out as I write, let's hope it stays this time!
