John Next Door and I have started a little challenge just between us. This is the item that put the idea in his head.
He gave me a canvas frame that measured about 16" x 16", it had a sentiment about daughters on, and as I dont have a daughter I thought I would paint it. I used my oil paints and they took ages to dry but I have finally finished it. You can see Johns on the link above.
Here is mine when I first painted it. You can see Johns finished frame here.
I did it in white first then decided I wanted it in black, abit of a change I know, but as I started painting it, I thought it looked good sort of stripey.
I used loads of different dies - Spellbinders Bitty Blossom flowers, Spellbinders shapes, Marianne butterflies, Crealies leaves and Cheery Lynn corners and hearts.
Of course, it is all dedicated to Hollie. It will hang in my newly decorated reading room upstairs (this is really what was the veranda of our bedroom and has been glassed in, I have moved the bookcases into it, hence 'reading room') which has accessories in purple and pinks.
