A not so sneaky peek at my WIP for you… I’m so pleased with it so far!


I added fabrics in white & pink to give her almost a train of material down the back of her dress.


I painted the background of the canvas in gold glitter. Its quite subtle but looks gorgeous when the sun hits it.


Skirt detail.


Decided she was a definite redhead. Used acrylic paints to colour her hair…



So now I’m just figuring out how to finish her. Acrylics to paint in her skin? Paper? Text might look interesting… Any other finishing touches? I was considering a tiara… diamante? Buttons? Metallic embroidery thread? Hhhhmmmm….

On a totally different note, I watched Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince y’day & thoroughly enjoyed it! My fella & my friend were both annoyed that it skipped parts of the book & (apparently) made other parts up but on the whole they enjoyed it too. I did find the storyline slightly disappointing (movie only, in the book it is apparently all perfectly clear) in so much as Harry has a potions book owned by the Half Blood prince which suddenly, halfway through the movie they all decide is dangerous & insist that Harry hides it, even from himself, but you have no idea why! I didn’t get it at all… the others did because they’d read the book! Anyhow, have borrowed the book to read & am quite looking forward to it.

Have to go, am off to meet a friend in town for lunch, will have a look at metallic embroidery thread whilst i’m there. *Dons Wellingtons, puts up umbrella & waves chirpily…..*
