My Way...........Day 5 or 30 Paintings in 30 Days

As the title of this post says I'm doing it My Way in 2014.  I think it's about time I did things that I want to and not always what others want.  I'm going to do what I want, when I want and how I want.  If anyone wants to join me on my journey they are welcome to but don't expect me to change my plans. There will be times when I have to be flexible and that's fine but on the whole I'll be sticking to my plans.

I didn't plan to make this card to be anything other than another piece for me to learn from but it seems my sub-conscious was trying to tell me something and this is how it turned out.  

Watercolour paper - neo wax crayons, polychromo pencils, white gel pen, black pitt pen, scrap book paper, quilling paper rolled up to make flower heads.


To see more artists work pop over to Slices of Life blog.  I'm also including this in the Handmade Monday blog post over on Handmade Harbour

Till tomorrow enjoy your crafting

Sweet and uplifting! It's a fine line between being accommodating and getting taken advantage of. Good luck finding your balance. :)

It's gorgeous. I love the curve created by the tree and echoed in the colours and the woman. I also love the message! Good luck in 2014 xx

She has a fantastic face, Anita! I really love her.

I also can't believe those flowers are quilled. You have the patience of Job!
