FNwFs and RSC June


 Friday Night with Friends, being at the beginning of the month, is always the ideal time to work on my Rainbow Scrap Challege blocks for the month. And this month is no different. Earlier in the week I got out my scrap box and pulled all the purple scraps - and anything mauve or lilac too as I felt they went together. Just as well too as surprisingly my purple scrap pile was not very big.


So on Friday afternoon I cut out my little hexie Dresden flowers ready to sew in the evening and cracked on with the crumb blocks. Just 3 crumb blocks and only 4 squares for my Scraptherapy box. Still, I did use every last scrap so that was good.


Thank you Cheryll for inviting us round again - pop over to Cherylls blog here to see what everyone else got up to.

Also linking up with Angela here for ScrapHappy Saturday where you can see lots more purple!

I have been busy on and off with my water colours since I last posted and have now moved on from glass to china. First picture my last attempt at glass,then two china pieces.




I also joined in with the #7daysketchbookchallenge on Instagram and did a sketch a day - well I fell behind and did 3 in one day but you get the idea. Having chosen my sketchbook I then discovered on day 2 that our theme would be the 7 colours of the rainbow. My sketchbook wouldnt take wet paint so I stuck with just pencil drawings. I am glad I did though as really sketching was my whole reason for doing the challenge. Here they are in order starting with my red kettle












and finishing with my amethyst ring, the only violet I could find in the house. So glad I joined in with this and I look forward to joining in with the next one.

Well I think that is quite enought from me for one post - have a great week everyone.

Wow, you really are good at painting, I love the jug!
I see that you managed to change your header picture, I have a problem with doing that, since Blogger changed settings (again).

You are doing such a great job of working through your scraps each month, Lin!! Seeing those Crumb blocks make me want to get back to my abandoned Crumb project. Maybe next month... :o))

How many people can say they used up all their purple scraps?!? Not many! Congrats on a good (and cute) use of them all. You’re a very talented artist. Until I looked closer and read your descriptions, I thought the China pieces were photographs. Beautiful!

Good for you using every last purple scrap already!

Congratulations on using up all your purple scraps. Congratulations on those watercolours paintings and the sketches too. You have real talent. I love what you did. ;^)

Annie a dit…

Lin, your little scrap works look great. Nice bonus to use up every scrap too.
Your glass and china paintings look great. At first glance I did think they were all real pieces.
I’m so jealous of your painting and drawing skills. I love that we can all see all the items in their rainbow colors too. :-)

Oh my goodness, Lin, I think you have discovered another gift that you have. You are such a clever artist, both your sketches and your water colours! Love that pretty little jug....stunning! All those purples, lilacs and mauves are lovely together. The lilacs and mauves add a lot of pretty interest.
