Do you like a variety?
Yes, Anjabee, I do like to find a variety of things to paint. Like to find wooden items or metal trays or bowls at TS, GS, Big Lots, etc. Try to not pay more than a dollar or two for them, then repaint and put a cute pattern on them. My sister grew gourds one year and mailed me some when they had dried. Didn't use any patterns, but made a raggedy ann & andy, a snowman, and a santa out of them. They are easy to paint on. I used to cut a lot of wood shapes to paint, but don't do that as often now. I learned some basic One Stroke painting by watching the Donna Dewberry videos, so I made lots of yard stakes and signs, now painting on a bunch of metal trays I found at TS recently. I also found some small slates for $1 each, painted roses and rosebuds on them--my SIL, and nieces are teachers so they wanted them to hang on their classroom door with Name and class on them. I paint mostly for myself or give as gifts, have only sold at one craft show. Do you sell?
