Did you know I love to paint, well I do. I started this craft years ago only painting on furniture and stools.. very country crafts.. Then I would do little Christmas crafts to sell to my family,neighbours and friends if they requested something..
It was a fun thing to do and I still do some of it.
When I moved to this present house I was house bound most of the time , only because there was no mall across the street, and no where to walk to other than the park and schools. oh yes not even a variety store.. to grab a magazine. So I became even more crafty to keep myself from not going crazy.
The first year I had an idea of making these scarecrows.. My dear hubby bought me the wooden boards and I started to draw and paint them out.. he did all the cutting . I did the fronts and backs of these and proudly displayed them on my front porch each fall season before Thanksgiving.. They are out there right now is you take a look. This is Sydney posing with them this afternoon!!
I also started dabbling in painting on canvas. I just needed a photo of whatever landscape scene and I could paint it.. I did some of these up for Christmas gifts one year for all the parents and they were shocked at how well they all turned out. seeing that I had no training what so ever and did it all by just plopping paint on canvas. These are some of my paintings. I have a ton more just waiting to be hung.
I also painted that red wooden bench.
Now for my painting on metal or wooden plates. These images I got off of the web.. can't remember which site.. but they are not mine.. but I did paint them free hand, no sketching just making it work. I just love Christmas.. so I do alot of these around my house.
Well, here we are and most of you know that I love to scrapbook and make cards.. but Thursday I decided to make up some of my own images.. only your basic pumpkins.. but I do seem to love them. So, here are the cards I made with my hand drawn images.. tell me what do you think???
I just thought it would be fun to share some other things about ME with you. Something different ,but I just love every aspect of being creative and making things from my heart.
I hope I didn't babble on too much.
Have a wonderful Friday.. if you are looking for the FWF post it is just below this.
