Here are the results.............
Emily's picture that she was painting from.
and her slate so far..... I see a budding artist!
my picture but as you can see I used creative liberty and I stink at baskets LOL
I will try and work a little more on the basket so it isnt so one dimentional.I do love the flowers though. they were fun. Can you tell? I put more of them in the basket and didnt show the handle. That is what is great about paint. You don't like something, you paint over it.
I have to admit my flowers look more like lilacs than hydrangea. I think I used a brush that is too small. the petals should be larger and rounder. but the overall effect I think is ok.
I also need to invest in some stencils for lettering. But it has a rustic feel to it and will be a gift once I tweak some things.
