Quick art share...

Lots of pics so I'll keep the words brief :D
Tamara Laporte  generously shared one of her classes for free 
last week, so I downloaded and gave it a try...
and Loved it!
"Happy Traveller" 
 she is on a journey...
 with her travelling companions..
 a very wise Hare and a chirpy little bird :D
 I enjoyed the class so much I decided to make another page.
 set on a darker night...
 I was trying for a darker skin tone...
but still ended up pretty pale. 
 Now I realised her face was rather wonky...
her mouth and nose looked very twisted.
 So I took a deep breathe and blocked them out with gesso...
 and re positioned them...
 which was really scary...
 but definitely worth it.
Much happier now :D
 The angle of her headband was also hopelessly wrong,
but I decided to keep it in and use to emphasise my journalling...
 "I wear my Halo at a jaunty angle..."
Not quite finished yet, but happy with how it's going.
Enjoy :D XXX


  1. I really like the slickness of the style... and the Gina(ness) of the bunny!

    1. Me and the Mad March Hare strolling along lol

  2. Gina!!!!! I wish you had an Etsy shop! Wow woman!!! WOW!!! Love!!! They are both so special! The "halo" one is fantastic!! Keep being you!! Big Hugs!

  3. Incredibly beautiful faces Gina and I truly admire your bravery in altering one of them, I would have been happy with it as it was but you took it to another whole level of genius. You should be creating your own range of stamps with these, love them xxx

  4. I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at

    1. Ok Jerry...that's fine by me :)

    2. Thank you so very much for giving permission. You can see your linked header under All, Arts/Crafts. Fine Arts, Literary and the United Kingdom. If you could say something (preferably good) about here and there, I would greatly appreciate it.
