Dyan made me paint!!!

I am soooooooo artistically challenged that I was not a happy bunny when on arrival at the Art from the Heart retreat this weekend Dyan announced that we would be painting - freehand!!

One of the reasons I love rubber stamps is because I cannot draw or paint for toffee. I have a GCSE in art but I cheated and did pottery, so really it's a GCSE in craft!

I'm still not sure about it but at least I did it and the sleigh does look quite festive on the hearth. Some of the shading and highlighting techniques were handy and I am sure I'll use them again. Not a convert to freehand painting though I am afraid...

There is a pic of me and my buddies on Dy's blog - we all look knackered!


  1. Wow! You should be very pleased... I just love this sleigh! Those trees are adorable and love the whimsical colours fabulous Katy! HuGs Kim :)
