only two more sleeps….. and still soooooo much to do! i think i’m on track though. i think i’ll get it all done!
today is day eleven of our christmas swap. jen is artiste number 11. check out the gorgeous necklace she sent….
i’m already wearing it and i love it! thanks jen.
so today was my “spend the day in the studio painting” day. i really shouldn’t post piks here because the recipient of this could just by chance look at my blog….. lets cross our fingers that she doesn’t.
it’s still got a few final touches to be added but i’m happy. this is the 12th pressie of my own “12 days” gift pile for our cousin julia. i made her a homemade journal (picture posted in an earlier entry) and really wanted to play around with the image a bit more. its been fun painting straight onto a stretched canvas – i really prefer working on watercolour paper, there’s a bit too much “bounce” on a canvas. this one is quite big, in fact i think its probably the biggest i’ve ever painted (16″x32″). hope she loves it!
finished, now i can get onto the sewing presents!!!
speaking of painting and not having any room left on my studio desk (or anywhere else for that matter)….. looks like i will be cleaning up a bit in the new year….. again!
