New Orleans Painting

Several of my friends have talked about the Cork N Canvas classes, where you go and socialize, have a bit of wine, then you paint a simple picture on a canvas. Well last Thursday after work I stopped at Wal-mart and bought a 16 x 20 canvas and a small arylic paint set, and some brushes. Then I went home and searched the internet for some clipart to use in my picture, since I do not draw very well. I traced the jester hat, the fleur de lis, the saxphone and the street car. I free handed the street lamp, the house, the St. Louis Cathderal, the piano keys, and the tabasco bottle. I have to say that it took me 5 -1/2 days to complete this painting. It will a challenge to me to see if I could accomplish this on my own with no intructions. I think I did a pretty good job.

these little teddy bear paper piecing went well with the "Daddy's Sweetheart" sticker from Miss Elizabeth. I use my red copic pen to color in the hear.

These cute little girl images was found on the net, I inked the edges of all of them, then use micro soft word to do my title for the page.
another bath page. These were fun paper piecings to make. I also use the stickles on the bubbles. I just love the stickles.
