Good Evening all! Ive been experimenting with my Lyra Watercolour Crayons - again!! Welcome the Little Suzi Range Ive been working on. They are all done on A4 size heavy weight paper, with my watercolours, ink and paper with certain elements raised for a 3d effect. They are all unframed for ease and cost effectiveness of posting. They will fit in a 6 x 8 inch window of a frame or alternatively in an A4 frame. Hope you like them. I think I will be making more with different themes down the track.
You can purchase them here in my Etsy Store.

Good morning all!
As a little girl, I just loved the Enid Blytons 'Folk of the Faraway Tree' book series, and this is what has inspired my painting. I could sit and read and re-read those books for hours! All the magic, mystery and the fairy folk! Im going to have a go at doing some woodland folk as well, and try for a series of paintings with them. Ive listing this one in my Etsy store. You can buy it here. Delivery is free in Australia, and I deliver internationally also.
I have used Lyra Watercolour crayons, ink and paper. The little toadstools are raised and made with the spotty paper for a little 3d effect!

I will be running a children's workshop where your child can learn to create their own mixed media painting on canvas. I will teach them basic mixed media techniques with acrylic, paper, stamping, stencils, cutting and gluing. It will be lots of fun! Spaces are limited so book in asap

These are may favourite colour combinations at the moments! Vibrant red with turquoise and teal with splashes of metallic gold, all on a base of chocolate brown!! This one Ive painted for my own house to add a bit of zing to the already browns/reds Ive got going on at the moment, of which looks great, but Im a bit bored with! Hence the torquoise colour Im adding for a bit of ping!! Hope you like it! I do, and it looks great on the wall too! The light hits the metallic bits in just the right places too.

Well Ive been a little busy finishing off this large painting for my own house. I thought you all might to have a look! I have used acrylic paint, metallic gold, impasto and a squirty bottle. I think Ive got a new addiction with using the palette knife. Its very freeing and I love the rustic type of look that you can achieve with it.
Colours I used are teal, aqua, white, brown, black, vermillion, red and metallic gold.
Here is a close up. You can see the drips in this picture as well as the texture.

Morning all - I have recently been back playing around with my beloved Lyra Watercolour Crayons, which I just love!! I also recently bought some beautiful new 12 x 12 inch papers, which I have been itching to do something with! Anyway, I made these whilst watching t.v. two nights in a row, (there was nothing on the telly to watch either really), so I played around, and made these two A4 size pretty mixed media on watercolour paper ready to be framed. I used ink, paper, glitter glue, and my Lyra watercolour crayons. I think I will put them in my Etsy store soon, when I get a chance.
This one above will suit a box frame to allow for the 3d elements of the butterflies.
This one above also has the 3d effect with the dragonflies. This could still sit in a regular frame but would also look great in a box frame.
