I obviously spend too much time watching telly!

*note: this is the second post of the day. Scroll down for the stampotique blog hop"

I admit it I am hooked on watching create and craft channel. I watch it like other people watch daytime pulp telly. I've watched Stephanie Weightman do her one stroke painting so many times now, that I thought I must be able to do it, so I decided to give it a go.

no practice, no special tools, just my trustee poundland non-stick mat, normal acrylic paints and quite a nice flat paintbrush (from a childrens set, probably from a supermarket)
I am entering this for One Layer Wednesday's Inspiration Challenge.

I chose to use the Kraft card to represent the wood background, and obvioulsy the yellow and white flowers.

I am also entering this for the Kraft Journal's "welcome summer" challenge

  5. I am addicted too I keep trying to get hints from Steph and Sheena so I can start to use my acrylics for painting. I adore your rose it looks beautiful. I keep trying but I think I need to record it and then do it. I You Tubed One Stroke Painting there are some great videos xxx Hugs Pascale
