Don't settle for less


Yay, it's already Friday!!! It means Bank Holiday and an extended weekend, wohoo! It's also time for Art Friday - Show Your Face. I do enjoy drawing and painting, I never believed Mother in law when she told me to paint, but she was right that it's joyous.

Other challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks: Anything Goes
Ruby's Rainbow: Anything Goes
Paint Party Friday: Show your work


Materials used:
DQWV cardstock covered with strips of Japanese Origami papers.
A layer of white Distress crackle paint diluted with water and a layer whit rich yellow Tilda acrylic paint.
Derwent watercolour and Inktense pens, Liquitex acrylic pens (love them).

Thank you for visiting and taking time to leave a comment, it means the world! I'll probably have a latte now and then go to the gym for my other outlet. Letting out some steam whilst lifting weights. Enjoy you're Friday!

Love and hugs
Maarit
