We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Friends Forever!

It has been too long since the Fearless Four got together for a creative day - with lunch of course! But last week we managed it and we all did an MDF shape with stand.

Watercolour has taken over my life for a little while now, so it was good to dig out some bits and pieces and my acrylic paint and put together a dimensional piece.

I forgot to take a picture before applying gesso, but did get an after-gesso shot!

I used various flowers made from paper, fabric and metal, plus a few beads and charms. I also used some texture paste that contains glass beads - love that stuff!

I haven't used much blue in my watercolour projects, so it was time for a blue overload! But for the letters I did put an orange layer under some crackle glaze before the blue!

We all finished too -

Lin's fairyland - using some metallic glaze on top of the wood pieces.

Monica's vision in graduated pinks.

Linda's another blue girl!

So, a good painterly time with lunch and a natter - nothing better!

"We'll be friends forever, won't we Pooh?" asked Piglet
"Even longer" Pooh answered.
