This was my garden this morning, gorgeous hot sunshine
My daughter and SIL have been to 2 weddings 2 weeks in a row so I was feeling in quite a wedding mood. I thought I would create a summer wedding page when I came across a great word in my vintage dictionary....
tintin what I hear you say (and if you have heard of it you get a brownie point) I certainly hadn't.
My clever Hb knew its definition and we agreed it would be the perfect word to use.

I added some other stamps too and then started dabbing on white, gold and bronze acrylic paints until I was happy with the background.

Here is my finished piece. I added some wide lace to give the appearance of a brides veil hiding the texture and fabric of her beautiful dress.

I am heading straight back out to the sunny garden now, time to put on the kettle or it may even be Pimm's O'Clock soon ..who knows. Enjoy your Sunday too. Don't forget to listen for the tintinnabulation, especially if there is a wedding taking place. I think I will just sit and listen to the bees today....bliss.
Thanks as always for your kind visits and sweet comments you take the time to leave.
Bye for now,
