Patterns and classes on Craftsy

I have  opened a pattern store on Craftsy so that I can share some of my patterns 

click here for free instructions to paint this  cute sign. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow using  DecoArt Americana Paint

What a nice way to remind your guests that they should remove their shoes!

and if you have shoes like this be careful not to drop paint on them!

Decorative painting

I love painting!

and thought I would share some of my results with you

I started painting about 13 years ago when I saw a demonstration at the SECC in Glasgow - it really did have a "wow" factor and I  couldn't wait to learn

I attended a couple of classes and received excellent teacher training from DecoArt. I feel very privileged to be a DecoArt Helping Artist as they are such a professional company who sell, what I think are  the best products available

I painted these cards yesterday with DecoArt Americana paint - they are for a summer fete being held in the home where my Mum lives

 painted with Rainbow Dust edible paints -  cupcake covers (and painted edible paper)

practicing scroll work - there is a little wobble though

these poppies are one of my favourite canvases

Les Lettres Lap Desk

if you have never painted decorative painting may be just the thing for you - it is a systematic learning process similar to learning an alphabet. If I can be of any help just SHOUT lol

Happy painting
