My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Inchie fridge magnet

We all love to play with paper but sometimes there's more fun to be had by getting out the sloppy stuff and getting all messed up :D  When I'm decorating I end up with more paint on me than on the walls and when I'm crafting with paint I end up the same.  I 'm a serial handwiper on trousers kinda gal... which is why my wardrobe keeps
I played with a mini canvas for this piece adding lots of my fave colour red acrylic paint before bubbling it up with my heat gun to add texture.  Love it cos now it's all touchy feely.   The wooden inchie was covered with an inchie image from Narry at Etsy to which I added a wee bit of red brick distress ink.

I finished off by gluing a magnet to the back... quick and easy...and lotsa fun.

Lovely image and I like what you've done with it (you still managed to get some DI in there!!). I didn't know the heat gun would bubble up acrylic paint - I like the texture it produces. xx
