Paint Party Friday - Still WIP

Another Paint Party Friday  going on with Eva and Kristin! 

This week I worked a bit more on the 5 x 5 canvas landscape, which is part of my Autumn on the Mountain series. 
I added a bit of color, and have some more toning to play with before adding the threads and other doo-dads I've planned. 


Also, being thrifty, I  used some of the leftover paint on this torn paper background. It also has a few stamped images added. 
It has since been cut up into postcards... more on that next week. :)


Check out what others are doing for their Paint Party Friday here


And a great group of artists are also sharing at Artists in Blogland.

your landscape is fabulous - I love the texture you've added to make it so 3 dimensional and the colours and 'v' shape of the sky and mountains really draws the eye!

Wow, your thriftiness really led to a beautiful background.
The new landscape is really coming along nicely. The fall foliage is gorgeous against the bright blue.

Lovely work in progress, already looks quite beautiful.
I usually throw left overs out but maybe I should reconsider before I do. Thanks for sharing.
