Floppy eared bunny.

I go to a fortnightly craft club on Monday mornings. This little bunny was the project we did this morning.
We have a go at most handmade crafts .
Its a club for all skill levels and I have made many new friends their.
The bunny is filled with hollow fibre and quite simple to make.. Its all hand stitched.
Isn't he/she cute?

Out of my comfort zone

I have been going to an art class on a friday morning for about a month now, and I am having so much fun. Its very relaxed, all different ages, all different styles and all different levels .
My art teacher has been trying to get me out of using precise and mechanical brushstrokes, below is my first go at this style.
Very different for me. Took me totally out of my comfort zone.

This is a winter scene I did on hardboard. Snow is so difficult to capture in paint, well it is for me lol.

Memory Lane

A few months ago I brought a book to teach me how to paint. This is my first picture using some of the techniques shown in the book.

I call it memory Lane.

Cute cats.

I am not a fan of cats but I made a card using a cat theme and I think it turned out OK.
Its left blank so can be used for a multitude of occassions.
