Crafty Friday

I had a lovely day today with Kaz. We had a little trip to a great local craft shop, Craftology in Hillington (website is underway but only a small fraction of their goods are online at the moment), definitely worth a visit if you are in the Glasgow area. Then a crafty afternoon for us.


Lots of playing with acrylic paints and layering for texture produced this little canvas, which I might add an image to it, I'm not sure if it is finished yet.

Then inspired by Carol's post I had a go at the transfer technique using acrylic paint. As you can see I got a bit carried away removing the pulp on the face so I turned the mistake into a happy accident.


Last for now was a late entry for this week's TMTA challenge of Middle Ages. Stamps used for this were from a great plate from Alpha Stamps.



Thanks for taking the time to look :-)

glad you and kaz had a good day. I've never had the luxury of visiting a craft shop with a crafty friend. great work, the effect on the canvas is fabulous, and the mords on the mona picture made me laugh. it's so frustrating when you do that with an image transfer. well done for seeing the funny side.
and your TMTA is brilliant. I couldn't come up with anything for this theme.

Sounds like a great day you and Kaz had. I love your canvas but your Mona piece is a stroke of genius, it would of ended up in the been had it been mine.

Audrey said...

wow - don't know where to start Seona - beautiful work ;-) Love the middle ages piece ;-) you'll have to make more mistakes if they all turn out as good as the mona lisa. Your backround is fab!!

ooh you had a creative afternoon Seona. the canvases are great starting points and the TMTA looks really interesting the way you've put it together. I think the quote on the image transfer is hilarious!
