Mixed Media Girls and some Colourful Stripes


First of all let me say happy Valentine's day to all of you out there in Blogland. ♥ ♥
Thankyou for coming here today and to see what I've been up to of late. :)

You might have noticed I've recently been enjoying working on some little mixed media pieces and I've now finished 3 more!

This one's called 'Peachy' and measures 6 x 6inches. It's painted on box canvas, with white painted sides and wire on the back ready to hang.




'Demeter' and 'Maris' are painted on thick watercolour paper and measure 10 x 7 inches each.
.



They are all now listed in my Etsy shop ready for someone special (is that you?) to give them new homes. :)

♥ ♥ ♥

Before I go, I'll show you my current crochet makings. It's a stripy blanket for ME! I'm enjoying these stripes so much, choosing which colour to use next that I'm not sure if I'm ever going to be able to stop!


For those knitty crochet types that are interested in making something like this themselves, here is the pattern I used, please  CLICK HERE.


See you next time, have a great week! xx

I love your bold use of colour. It has brightened up a very dull day here in the Midlands. Oddly am working in graphite almost exclusively.

Jess, I always delight in your paintings. And that crocheted blanket - I can see why you made it for yourself! I love coming over here because there's so much color, creativity, and wonder.

Happy Valentine's Day, Jess.

Happy Valentines Day Jess...such colorful beauty here. Seems like you are on a good roll with painting.

I used to crochet, but painting took over any spare time I can find.

Happy weekend!

The first painting is very tender and romantic.It's such a pleasure to see what you've created, Jessie - I'm sure your wonderful paintings will have special places in their new homes.
