is this cute or what!

I realise many will be saying.. or what? these are my first poppet type thing, I have the family poppets sitting on my desk, they are a tiny bit scary.

This is all part of a double canvas for Buzz and Bloom, I will let you know when it goes up, it will come with full instructions and techniques.

I'm mostly spending my day checking my assets each time I get up to make sure whatever it is I have glued isn't stuck to my bum! I'm enjoying these projects, makes me have to think and learn and try new things. And plan, I sketched this out several times before I was happy, then after I had made my poppets I had to send Michael out for bigger canvas', I don't do small well at all.

So anyway I am having fun, off to see what is best to do colour washes on canvas before I sketch my design on.

this looks great, I can almost reach in and open the car door to find a poppet driving LOL. As for colour washes for canvas - any old paint (I like golden or Jo Sonja) Watercolour pencils scribbled on then washed over with water, kids acrylics, anything really...even dye of any sort. It depends on what you are trying to achieve really.

Hi Ali,

this is really cute. I haven't given it a go yet but you might have just inspired me to have a bit of a play today.

Enjoy your week,
