Jess & I spent hours looking
at the artists & their stalls
on the Ramblas in Barcelona.
The portrait artists & cartoonists were brilliant
( forgot to get photos ! )

I particularly liked the above one & bought a print.
It's only small -
smaller than a postcard
( but bigger than an ATC !!! )
and packed with detail.

It's made on photographic paper
then little ceramic dots added
which give a fabulous feel & effect.
I just love it &
will frame it in an old frame
& hang it in my kitchen.

I made another Degas' dress !



The background  is the colour
 I painted the chimney breast in our kitchen-
the remaining walls are cream.
so my little Barcelona print will go very nicely !


Sisters !

  1. Your kitchen sounds lovely and the little print is fab - I could see the raised dots when I clicked on the photo.

    Love your second Degas dress - I think I would hang it in your kitchen too on the cream wall - in a red frame to match the print - hehehe!
