Sunday sketches

Hi everyone hope you all had a great weekend. I've been so busy doing a massive stock take of all my pendants for my upcoming market. I've been pricing them and practicing my set up. My lovely hubby made me some boards to hang them on which has really made a difference to how it all looks.

This weeks Sunday sketch is just a quickie from my sketch book, i've been wanting to do another flower painting but I've been really struggling, I've painted over one canvas 3 times now as I'm not happy with how it turned out. So I sat down and sketched up some different flower ideas. I'm hoping to work on the paintings in the next few days.

I should have at least 100 pieces by the time I finish my stock take and I plan on making as many as I can before the big day as I bought some really cool clay the the other day.

Here are some shots of my set up with my clay pieces! :0)





I'm off to check out all the other Sunday Sketches :0)

Keep going on your painting... it will come. Your jewelry looks great on your new set up. I'm sure you probably know this, but don't forget a mirror or two!

Happy Creating!
