Photo Scavenger Hunt :: February #3 ... Unexpected

Hi there everyone πŸ˜€

I can't quite believe it's Friday again already and time to link up with Kate's photo scavenger hunt over on I live, I love, I Craft, I am me.

The word for inspiration this week is ... unexpected.

I decided to both keep it simple this week and go with something new ...
I'm not sure if you will have seen the blog post about the 'Art Class in a Box' I treated myself to with some Christmas money ... but this is my first creation and to say the outcome was 'unexpected' is an understatement!

I will be blogging more about our dining room table art session, but for someone who has always considered themselves to be totally useless at art of the painting kind I was pretty chuffed with how it turned out πŸ˜€

  1. That picture is lovely. I'm from the 'can't draw, can't paint' group so I understand your happiness.

    1. Thank you ... I almost can’t quite believe how it’s turned out. I’m really looking forward to starting the next project ... though that does look trickier ... I’m sure I will be sharing the results though πŸ˜ƒ

  2. That picture is really lovely and the frame really does it justice. Well done. By the way, I am also a Carol, Kate's mother. Jak was the name of our much beloved cat years ago.

  3. Wow, that's a great idea - I'm also from the can't paint camp but have been really enjoying messing with paints lately - well done on actually painting something that looks like something lol.

    1. I couldn’t quite believe how it turned out. There was a practice tutorial which definitely helped with confidence ... can’t wait to have a go at the next one πŸ˜ƒ

  4. I can't draw or paint to save my life but your 'art class in a box' sounds intriguing. Well done on your painting, it's lovely :)

    1. Thank you ... and that is exactly what I would have said about my ability ... I have to admit to being quite proud of the finished article ... Just got to find a space for it to hang now πŸ˜ƒ

  5. What an absolutely beautiful picture and I love the simple way you've mounted and framed it. It would make a lovely Christmas card too!

    1. Thank you ... yes the frame certainly did lift the finished article no end ... just a fluke really that I had it ... though I did have to sacrifice an art print πŸ˜‚

  6. Well done & see, you aren't useless at art, but I definitely can only paint furniture or such. Think the "art in a box" sounds good. Look forward to seeing more. Take care & hugs.

    1. Thank you ... I must admit I was often the same at work ... it was always the tasks I thought would be the hardest and didn’t want to do that I put off and then when I finally built up to doing them there were easier than I thought they would be πŸ˜ƒ
