Summer sign

luvstocraftApril 21, 2009

Here's another little oval sign I just painted. I still need to speckle it, but thought I'd go ahead and get a pic of it for you. I sprayed a coat of sealer on it, I like to do that before I speckle it so that if I mess up, I can just wipe it off and not ruin it.

This is a Laurie Speltz design, would be great on a basket if I had one the right size! LOL

Luvs,

Your sign turned out great. I really like the fuzzy bears and the ant is so cute. Your fruit turned out nice as well. I like the saying on it. Thanks for sharing and keep on paintin'

I like this, Luvs. The colors all go great together. I missed the ant at first, there is so much to look at. Your lettering looks perfect. Hope you find a basket. This is too nice to put away.

Aw, isn't that the cutest little scene! I love it! The fruit is shaded so nicely and how cute are those bears. ha Little ant is cute too. Yep, lettering looks great. I have a hard time with stars (they end up looking slanted) but yours look great. What a fun project and makes me want a picnic. ha ~Anj

Luvs, I don't have any of Laurie Speltz books but if you keep posting projects like this I may have to go shopping.LOL Didn't you get something of hers for Christmas? Is this from your Christmas gift you received?

Oh and by the way thanks for the two links you gave on the discussions. I enjoyed looking.

Luvs, this is really cute. I don't think I've seen any of her books, but I agree with Punk, this makes them seem tempting. I love the bears - they look so fuzzy and puzzled. They whole thing is so colorful - my kind of painting!

Luvs,

Just wanted to say thanks again for the links. I never have enough time to browse on my own and find new painters. But I will look when given the link.

Thanks Kathi. It's great to hear from you. If you are feeling better now maybe it's time to pick that paintbrush up again. You are a good painter, and I'd sure love to see more projects that you do. Luvs

Luvs.... How cute. I don't usually like bears but these are really great! They look so "frazzled" Your shading and highlighting is awesome!

Hi Belle, Frazzled is a good word, I thought maybe they were worried about that ant coming to their picnic! LOL Hope it gave you a smile, I enjoy doing these "cutesy" things because they make me happy! ;o)
