Getting into tole painting
I see so many talented people, and so many beautiful projects on this forum, that I got to wondering how you got started tole painting.In my case, I got into painting later in life,When the kids were small I was so busy!! I always loved crafts, and would go to Michael's and just browse. One day I saw a painting project by Donna Dewberry, and the thought hit me "I CAN DO THAT"!! It was a really simple design-some of the one stroke flowers she does.So I took it home and did it, and though very amateurish I was so proud of it, that I showed everybody whether they wanted to see it or not! And I was hooked for life.My husband built me a room on the back of the garage for my crafts and painting, and when life gets me down I just go in there and paint away my troubles! It has really been a blessing in my life. And I am sure everyone have some really interesting stories to tell!! Thanks for letting me ramble on. I love this forum!!
