What I have been working on....

This is another of the little totes I have. I think it is one of those totes that had an old hair dryer in it - of course if you are as old as I am, this was the type dryer we used before blow dryers. Anyway, I was fortunate enough to get 9 cases off Craigs List last summer. I have started painting them and since I am still learning to paint hydrangeas, this was a good practice piece. I have no patience when it comes to painting stroke roses in acrylic so I may start in oil or Genesis paint again.

I painted the outside of the case in pink and off white (one of the OOPS paints from home Depot). I decided not to paint the handle as I was afraid the paint would crack or wear off with use. I am still debating painting something along the sides and of course, I still need to paint something on the inside lid. As usual, I varnished before I remembered to take a picture, so it is a bit shiny.

So glad to see all the nice projects everyone is doing. Now I am off to make my comments.

This turned out wonderful. I really like the mix of roses and hydrangeas. I think you have learned how to paint them very well. The ribbon is so cute the way you placed it on there, twisting and turning.

You are doing wonderful hydrangeas, Bebe. They look so soft and pretty with your gorgeous roses. I love the way you did the ribbon too. Oh yeah, I'm old enough to remember those hair dryers!
