- I LOVE to design and to paint whimsical items that will put a smile on your face. Each day I share my simple life with you as I try to encourage, to inspire and sometimes JUST to make you smile as I recount my life growing up on a dairy farm! I've never had many material items in my life, BUT I have been blessed beyond words with love and encouragement from WONDERFUL Parents who instilled in me WHAT was important. I have had EVERYTHING that I needed and WAY too much of what I wanted. I am slowly learning to be a better person each day through my interactions with my friends on Facebook. Some day I hope to be as good as people seem to THINK I am! I am BLESSED! Welcome to my little corner of the world...Please stop by and visit often!

Make a Wish
I thought it would be fun to share
how I created a dandelion.
I always think of my friend, Cheryl!
All of the products are by Decoart.
I based a 4 inch wooden canvas
I used my favorite dry wall
tape as a stencil.
I added Indian Turquoise, Antique White, and Foliage Green.
I didn't clean my stencil brush out between colors.
It helped create other colors.
Turn the tape different directions.
This is NOT an OCD-friendly project.🙄😕
Oh, lookie, a friend came to help me decorate for Halloween! 😁😂🤣
I then added circles with punchinello to add more interest.
I was using a small stencil brush, and look what I discovered.
It made a flower!
I taped it off so you could see it.
How fun is this!
I added squiggly lines of Lemonade, Foliage Green, and Plantation pine.
I drew a circle to show you where my dandelion would be.
I lightly stippled the circle with
I added lines of Foliage Green and Plantation Pine.
Public service Announcement: buy a good 18/0 liner! It makes all the difference in the quality of your linework! Even with quick and simple projects!
Small dots of Lamp Black were added to the center with a stylus.
Next Marigold dots were added--just a few.
Titanium White Dots were added with a large stylus, keeping them various sizes, and, yes, randomly placed.
Finish with just a few tiny Lamp Black Dots.
How easy was that?!
I added the word WISH with a Decoart Americana Stencil.
I shaded around the edges with my favorite Payne's Grey.
Of course, I had to make a domino, too...
AND a 3 inch canvas, too!
My goodness, this was really fun.
I KNOW you can do this.
Please share if you do.
Let's go out and paint wishes! 😚😊🙄
I am simply blessed to create~charlotte♡
