Things with Wings (the wee pixies)

I’ve been really enjoying playing with my Lavinia stamps, new and old, and I noticed they have some lovely new designs so I guess I’ll be going to hubby and asking for new pixie stamps again soon lol! I did my usual step of painting a pale watercolour landscape and then adding in stamped detail and much more colour to the clouds, the fields and other details. I love adding layers of colour like this and I also find it a really good stress buster for me, I start to deep breathe and really relax as I add more colour. I totally get the wellbeing colouring movement in that respect lol!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
