I am a Stencil Winner. . . .my Yellow Cottage has a Rainbow - Updated with Addition

I was a winner of the Stencil Girl Blog Hop featuring Pam Carriker.  Maria sent it to me. I was so excited. . .it went into my Spam folder and I was late getting back to her.  . . Oh My Gosh gmail . . .what were you thinking???

I can think of many uses for this stencil, but the first thing I saw was a Rainbow. . . . and of course my yellow cottage.  The long-haired dascshund, the garden and flowers. . .

I used the pastels, Prismacolor pencils and pens. The picture is 6x8 inches.

Thanks so much Eva and Kristin for throwing a great Paint Party Friday. The artists are varied and exceptional. Their creativity that they share through video and instruction are fun and a learning experience.  The art varies from journaling to mixed media and explanation of art supplies.

I thought the rainbow should be mushed together more and darker in spots, it wasn't too realistic. I am so glad for the stencil that I originally used because it kept the lines for it. I notice I don't have trees, couldn't figure out if I wanted palms or Elms/Oaks.  We'll see. I just want to find the durn thing and move in.


It’s not what I have been through in my life that defines who I am. . .It’s how I got through it that has made me who I am today.

On my daily walk in the mornings, I take a lot of pictures of clouds.  I have attempted to do something different here.  I put some water in some of them. . . not too sure what to do with them to make them look like clouds!!!  It is, yes, the yellow cottage I'm still trying to find. . . this time it's on a farm.  There's more corn beyond. . .

I used Prismacolor pencil and pens. It's 6x8 inches.

Be sure and take a look at what some of the other artists have come up with and what art supplies they are using on Paint Party Friday.


I am working on 4 more baby dolls. So I haven't had time to experiment this week.

3 New Babies

This week I made 3 new dolls. A gal at church requested one by Sunday.  I wanted to give her 3 choices.  I used Prismacolor pencils and pens and Acrylics.

See the Paint Party Friday artists for many other art creativity. Thank you Eva and Kristin.
