This month, my project begins with a pin from Step by Step Painting with Tracie Kiernan. Her canvas is called Dandelion Hearts. Next, I grabbed a dusty canvas that once hung proudly on a wall, but now it's just hanging out with the dust bunnies in a corner of my craft room. Do you remember my post about our granddaughter's Canvas Upcycle (or recycle)? Well, when she was working on hers, she actually painted my base color of dark green for me. Isn't she a sweetheart!
Once the base coat dried, I used white chalk to make a series of circles. Three sizes of nesting mixing bowls were used as patterns. With acrylic paints in pastel colors, six point stars were whipped along the chalk lines, then worked toward the center. After that, I purchased a white paint pen and made X's on top of some of the stars, but not all of them. I think the pastel colors are pretty! ;-) Soft green stems and leaves were added here and there.
I love dandelion puffs! Shall we all make a wish? After that, a vinyl cut file in soft lavender was created and placed in the upper right corner.
Be wild, my friends! Be wild!
Very cute! What a helpful granddaughter too. Pinned.ReplyDelete

I love dandelions! It reminds me of my childhood running around barefoot and making wishes with the dandelions I would run across. Excellent Job!ReplyDelete
