Friday Face Off

13. Ice skates, 16. Flamingo

14. Hollyhock, 15. Magnifying glass

I got a gift of a handmade sketchbook from a friend and I've started the first pages with a collage

I do Wordle and other word puzzles and I like a piece of scrap paper to write on. The flowers are made from this paper and then I coloured with paint and cut them out. behind them is a piece of paper used as as something to rest on while painting. I also stencilled and stamped it with various things I had. On the lower page the circles were cut with a punch from an old greetings card

The bird and stripy bottom were quick doodles I painted while I was watching my Granddaughter painting. They were separate paintings, the top area was lining from an envelope

  2. Your doodle art is wonderful, love especially they with birds, the Ice Skater is very cool :))

  3. Lovely art and enjoyed your exotic photos.

  4. The flamingo on ice skates made me smile.
    Fabulous photographs from Bangkok.

    All the best Jan

  5. You never stop to amaze me! Your lovely figure-skating flamingo put a smile on my face. I was so happy to see your creativity with old envelops again. MORE, please!

  6. This is such a fun post! I love the flamingo on skates. I enjoy the other doodles and drawings. I'm thinking your granddaughter is in a very good place to develop her painting skills.

    The windows are wonderful. I like windows as much as (maybe a little more than) doors. I guess it really the architecture I like.

    The doors are also wonderful. The first one looks like they asked you to paint it :-)

  7. Beautiful photos, and love the art, you have such fun ideas! Hugs, Valerie

  8. You are an amazing artist and so clever I love the ice skate. Have a very nice day today.
