A couple new projects

gail1055November 29, 2007

Just finished a couple projects. The step stool a friend commissioned me to paint for a christmas present. She wanted a pumpkin and colored leaves painted on it.

The other is a tropical christmas card design I decided to paint for fun on a fan blade. I went to the club house this morning for breakfast and took it along to show my friends and someone bought it :~). (Saturday they are having a Christmas bazaar to raise money for activities at our MHP, so I donated a couple fan blades I had already painted.) Check them out. Gail

Oh my Gosh, that pelican is so dang cute!! He looks so proud of himself for getting everything decorated up so nice. Love the fish jumping around and no wonder the lady snapped it up!
The step stool is awesome. Once again, love how you did the multicolored leaves. Very realistic. Bet your friend loved it! But if not, you can just pack it up and send it on to me! ha
Great job. ~Anj

Those are gorgeous!!!
We have a freecycle in our town where you list free stuff.
I found some on there. Do a freecycle search for your town. They have cropped up all over.

My friend purchased the step stool at Target. She wanted to leave the finish as is and just paint colored leaves and pumpkins on it. I suggested painting the background black on just the front of the step and then added the design. I'm glad you like it ;~) Gail
