Mothers are always appreciative of gifts made by their children, right? This year for Mother's Day I painted a mug for my mum. A love of sailing (and canoeing!) is something we have in common and it was something different from mugs you'd see in shops but still within my artistic capabilities!
The first boat turned out so well (surprised myself actually with how good it looked) that I did two more, on the other side.
The colours on the handle are how I had imagined the whole mug looking - more blendy and Impressionist. I would say now I know how to do it for next time but I'm not sure really how I got that look!
I couldn't resist putting something fun inside!
More painting for the card. Sometimes things just work out well! I'd actually planned to do something different but this materialized and I'm very happy with it. Plus it was a chance to use washi tape!!
This afternoon my mum, sister & I sat down to this delightful tea! Yum! My tastebuds are happy just thinking about it.
I hope you were able to do something special today too!
