* Daydream Believer ...

Daydream Believer - Isn't that a great name for a blog?  Go forth and visit Gina there.  In beautiful Yorkshire, UK.  Have a nice time.

The reason I am mentioning all this, well .... more presents have arrived.  This time from the lovely Gina.
Water soluble crayons - and a little landscape on canvas board, by Gina, as an example of how it's done.  NICE!

Feast your eyes on this exquisite card.  Hand made by .....

If any of you are interested in some very well done, informative, visual tutorials on all things artie, including portraits, you might want to visit Flutterbye.  It is a 'ning' sight, featuring Amy, of the blog by the same name.  All tutorials are free and well worth watching.  Specifically, the reason I mention this, is one tutorial is a portrait using water soluble crayons and gesso.  Interesting!  Go and explore.  Have fun.

Thank you so much my dear Gina.  I will think of you when I am playing with my crayons.  :o)

Hope you are all having a very peaceful, creative weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.  xxoo  Donna
