In the Meadow

Afternoon all - well only just. 

Well it is the Village Hall Show today - our entries are in and probably judged by now.

And we will be going up later once the doors open to see who has won in the various sections
and who will be awarded the Cups!!

Not looking to be a winner but it is the taking part that counts - although I have 
boycott the veg, fruit and flower sections as the judge who has been judging for many years
seems to think "we are the RHS Chelsea show!" and if for example your marrow is too 
large/ long it is not judged. 

Will report tomorrow how the show goes. 

Well here is my project for today

Where do I start think I will just show pictures and list the products used

Canvas, acrylic paints (various sorts), gesso, texture paste, micro beads, 
Clarity Stencil, Clarity Stamps, Pebeo gede mirror effect leaves, paper, 
flowers.... think that is it....

I fussy cut out the butterflies, and flowers.... and had great fun making this canvas. 

The paints I have used shine in the light. The stencil was painted with texture paste coloured with green and micro beads added. Then the Pebeo mirror leaves added to the edges. 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Must dash - have something to eat and then off up to the Village Hall. 

At least the sun has come out now. 

Hopefully Cream tea later :) 

Thank you for popping in and seeing me today. 

Have a great day
