Painting Up A Storm - CJS12

This Creative Jumpstart tutorial, presented by Catherine Scanlon, has been, for me, the most challenging one of all thus far!  I occasionally dabble with paint.  I add a dash of gesso here or a splash or watercolour there, but that's about as far as it goes!  So as I watched the video for the first time, I was tempted to skip the lot and move onto something easier!  Each of the three techniques had their own challenges and I spent a lot of time working on these pieces.  I persevered because I knew it would do me good to stretch out of the comfort zone a little more and try to develop my confidence with paint!  I have hesitated to show you the end results this time round - they are not masterpieces - but I said I would share it all, so I will!

I really like hidden journalling!  This journal entry was all about how amazingly good it feels to be strong on my feet again, after recovering from my mystery virus!  

And another reminder to play!

Really like the flower painted image, love the stippled background. You should paint more often. T x
