Party Time!

The Etsy Cottage Style Team is having a blog party.


Thanks for stopping by!





How have I been spending my time lately?


Painting angels...lots of them!


and using crackle paint.


I love it.





I love the textural interest that the crackle paint adds to the painting...



I love the deep lines of color I can add once the crackle paint has been added


to the halo and wings....






I'm also loving Walnut Ink Stain....


Love the aged appearance it adds to the paintings.





Oh, and I forgot the gold leaf I'm adding to my paintings!


I'm loving that too.






Did I mention the beeswax?



I love the shine and texture it adds to the artwork.



And the scent....wow...it is so yummy!








So that's what I've been playing around with



and all my favorites.



Stop by the Cottage Style Blog and



check out the rest of the blogs



It's a blog party....Have fun!






Have a great day,






Karen

Hi Karen, I wish I could touch your paintings...all the techniques you describe sound absolutely fantastic to me and I can only imagine it!!!
Your angels faces are so beautiful!!
Thank you so much for playing with us today and tease me with all these new things I had no idea you could use in a painting!

Hi Karen,
Love your paintings...they're soooo pretty!! Your angels are very sweet. Using crackle paint sounds like a fun idea...I'll have to try that one.
