and more stripes - days 8,9 & 10

I am learning sooo much from Milliandes challenges!!!  Am only up to 13 & there are at least 22 now...thank goodness they will always be posted! hahaha  Here you are...

Day 8 - has to be the messiest I have done!  I guess I like a bit more order & more colours!  Its very touchy-feely though.  I used acrylics & mica spray.  The orange blobs are supposed to be paint blown around with a straw but it was too think so I just splatted it haha


Day 9...layered lines...just about every medium I had was used to build up these stripes!  So its quite lumpy!!!!


Day 10 ...Dragonfly...there was a template to download for this.  Milliande drew around hers but I decided to doodle all over it & stick it in! I used watered down acrylics for the colours.

Have a brilliant weekend my lovelies!  HUGS XXX

Thank you SO much for visiting so many times lately, Karen. I have been SO busy, I didn't even post yesterday. I wanted to let you know how grateful I am for all your lovely comments, though.

It sounds and looks like you are having a ball with these techniques. I especially love the lines. They look so technique oriented.

Thanks again for being YOU!!
