Journal page swap and finished painting

Hello dear friends,
Again a quiet Sunday. That gives me hours to play with paint, paper, glue, etc. I started to finish the chunky pages for the Circus is coming swap. I continued with the journal page swap for which monthly journal pages are to be made. The prompts of the month February are: "All you need is love - John Lennon and Cupid. Thought it would be easy, because one thing to use in both prompts are hearts. But that doesn't make a page yet.... I did not want to draw any face or Cupid and that was a challenge. I don't know why but I had the idea to make a page on which the paint is smeared out. Sound a bit strange? Now I just did my thing and of course I had some mistakes, but I totally love this page. Instead of a neat page I have a smeared page with the message under neat. Now I cross my fingers and hope that Deedee, for whom I made the pages, likes my messy page?!?! Let me know what you think☺

I also made a painting for my second daughter. It was finished in January this year. Love it!! She wanted a somewhat gothic painting. She is not gothic herself. The canvas measures 60 x 80 cm (23,6 x 31,4 inches). For me that is quite a large project. Now both of my daughters have a painting I made for them. The oldest didn't want such a large one, so she got a small painting. After seeing her sister's she pleads for a larger one. Should I? Help me on this one:))

For a postcrosser I created a postcard. She preferred handmade and that gives me another reason to play with paper and glue:-)) The image was painted a very long time ago and finally founds its spot.

Have a nice Sunday:-)
