Well after an horrendous start to the week, I'm pleased to say I'm back to feeling like myself again. Just in time for the start of term our house hold was hit by the worst gastro bug I've had in years. It completely knocked my husband and I off our feet, as well as unfortunately passing it on to my parents :0(........our youngest had it over the weekend but not as bad as us and our oldest managed to miss out completely. We are now calling him 'Superboy'!!! Phew!!! Today I'm feeling back to normal although my appetite has definitely shrunk which isn't such a bad thing for me but I'd rather loose weight in a less icky way!!
I've painted up two more ladies in my journal I'm really loving this little project I set myself it seems to have opened another creative door for me. So much fun!!!
First up was this page that I have called 'Just breath'.......
I really love how she turned out and yes I'm going to turn her into a very striking pendant!
I called this one 'Innocence?'......
She kind of reminds me of Bridget Bardot and a bit of 'Sookie Stackhouse' from 'True Blood'...I'm so into that show at the moment....(not to mention Eric Northman) ;0)
What I'm really enjoying about this process is that I'll have an idea in my head but each girl takes on her own unique personality as I start to paint her. I painted these two in the space of a few days but they couldn't be more different in character.......with each one I have more ideas popping into my head :0)
Last but not least I just wanted to show you one of my latest pendants which are proving to be quite popular. I sold my 'Red Lady' wooden tile pendant that I made last week, a few days ago as well as my 'Koi fish' ring!!! Such a nice feeling to see my pieces go to new homes all over the world.
This pendant is made from my painting last week 'Trust'......
Also now in my etsy shop :0)
Hope you all had a great week and I look forward to catching up with you all this weekend :0)
