Paint Party Friday . . .

Hi everyone,  I've managed to squeeze a little me time in over the last couple of evenings and these are my little doodles.... Book Girl was looking a bit dull till I drowned the poor girl in gloss varnish...she suddenly popped out of the telephone directory...so I tried it on Safari Girl and friends and it brightened them up too...
Once I had finished printing I'm off to India! but I'l be home in time for tea! I realised it was very late and my "M's" had mistakenly turned into "N's"... so Safari girl is either a bit snooty....or dyslexic like me... I suspect she's a little bit of both....

How things have changed...when I was growing up dyslexia was something to be ashamed of and certainly not University material - dyslexic's were just "Thick", now dyslexic's who go to University get i mac's.... so glad something's have changed for the better.... :)

It's Paint Party Friday and popping along there...Love a Party....

These girls are so adorable. And I actually think the misspellings add to the charm of Safari Girl.

Glossy varnish tends to do that that's why I love it. :) Girlies look adorable. I wish I could go for a walk around India. :)

Love the book girl doodle. Doodling is what I do when I'm on the phone. Your girl looks like she's got a lot of spunk.

I loooove that you used the telephone directory....especially since it's foreign and novel to me over here in Vancouver!

How good would that be to get to India and back in time for tea :) However I've a feeling I may want to stay a bit longer than that, what with all those beautiful elephants and bengali tigers to find :) Lovely work. Oh and I LOVE your little owl bookmark too..going to Canada by any chance ;)xx
