Landscape & the Painting from Hell

For something a bit different I've decided to try my hand at A4 landscape digi scrap pages instead of A4 portrait as is my norm. It's wonderful to have a wide page instead of a tall one. I can't show you many yet, because most I have created for the CSI Design team and have to wait for reveals, but I just felt I needed a change.

I have been experimenting with new products and friends have given me links to new digi materials sites. There are so many out there now - and lots I've never heard of. I wish there was a listing of them all somewhere.. but the internet is such a wide and varied place I may never find one!

I am madly still painting artwork, but lately have been working on the one piece - which is unusual for me because generally I finish a small painting in 4-6 hours. This one has had several hours on it, and still not quite there. It's flowers in a vase (which isn't visible) in a room. I still think I'm days and possibly weeks away from a place where I can say with confidence that it is 'finished'.

Painting The Outdoors 2014 digi scrapbooking page - CSI Design Team 134 & Sketch - my first A4 LANDSCAPE layout
This is where the painting from hell started as a young pup.

My painting from hell - still on the go after several weeks. It's supposed to be for the flowers and fruit exhibition but at this rate it won't be finished for that in 6 weeks time!! Its still not right and not finished.

The Painting from hell continues... still not right and not happy with it. still eyeing off the bin for it.


  1. Hang in there, Kylie! I am SO impressed that you are doing some painting.....KUDOS! You are a "real" artist. Hee, hee, hee.

  2. You are very skilled and clever. I love seeing your creations, thanks for sharing. I hope you continue to get bursts of inspiration and finish this fantastic, beautiful, amazing painting. I am very impressed :)

    Over the last few weeks my daughter had to design, create and paint a skate board at school for her year 9 art class. She started with a plain wooden board and turned it into a fantastic colourful piece of art. I will get her to take some photos and email you a couple to see. I am so proud of her. She is lucky to have taken after my mum and sister, they are both very talented and artistic. I can't paint to save my life.

    Have a wonderful week end my friend. Lots of love from Susan McGuire (smiles1965 from Scrapboxx) xxoo :)

  3. Skateboard sounds incredible. Do you still have my email address susan? Look forward to seeing it! (maybe you should try and scrapbook decorate a skateboard yourself??)


I really appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment!
