Playing with Paint!!

Hello my sweet friends..  I have been in such a great mood lately.
I think it has a little to do with all the rain we have been getting.


We don't get much of the wet stuff here in the Desert..



So when we do it make me sooooo happy!



So I have been playing in my journal again..


This is all so new to me.. 


I have been watching videos on how to draw faces
and then paint them.. 


Added some sheet music as a dress.. 


Topped her off with a pretty crown.. 



So here you have it..  My Mixed media Angel..


I am linking to Paint Party Friday!!
I have been watching quite a few of my friend going to this party
every Friday and I wanted to join in..
So glad I did..






I am so glad you stopped by.. I really do appreciate all your sweet
comments..  They make my heart sing..

Hugs, Linda

Love your pictures, Linda! Rain? what is that? we did have some clouds though! I like what you are playing with. Your journal is coming along nicely. I have had one of those weeks I would like to forget, so maybe I should be painting too!. Have a wonderful Friday, your favorite day of the week.

Pointy Pix said...

those are such stunning photos of rain drops on the flowers. I can't really relate to your joy at the rain because, living in Ireland, I see more than my fair share of it most days!! I do remember living in North Africa for a couple of years and being really happy when it rained though so I can see how living in the desert the rain would make you happy!

I love your sweet journal illustration and the addition of the sheet music. PPF is a great place to hang out so I'm glad you decided to join in!

Chris said...

Maybe you should move to the UK, Linda, we have lots of rain here. :)

I love your angel, she is so sweet.
