A very Happy new year to you all!
This is my first post of 2014 and I wanted to share a little piece of what I have been up to over the past few days in between the seasonal revelry and mince pies.

I then gave it a wash of deep ultramarine and added the mermaids hair, again cut from gold wrapping paper.
I like the result, and although not cloisonne I think it has the feel of enamel.
I am trying other projects using re-cycled bits and bobs and I am hoping this year as my resolution to get my etsy shop finally up and running so anything I make can go straight on there. When I do I shall pass on the details.
Linking up to the Art share website Paint party Friday
And as a post script linking very happily to the Artists Playroom Newly opened for artists to show and share what the week has brought in terms of creative fun.
