Arts and Crafts Day

“Some people cannot see a good thing when it is right here, right now. Others can sense a good thing coming when it is days, months, or miles away.”
~Maya Angelou

Everyday is good; especially days like this…

A Saturday Art Course with my Mother-in-law

Starting out with plain canvas -adding little extra designs with stencils and putty

Covering with a few different colours rubbed on to combine

Darkening the corners to give it the antiqued look

Tracing the flower pattern and outlining with silver

Adding some shadows that will give the flowers some depth

Filling in the petals with 'Stained Glass"

Adding the little tiny beads to the centre of the flower [my Favourite part!] and the green "Stained Glass to the stems

All done! My Mother-in-law in the background working hard on her painting


How proud are we!? 

It was just one of those feel good days!
