Paint Party Friday!

I only got to paint once so far this week and
went a little crazy with dots!
But I also got to spend time painting
with two fabulous sisters and
 working  a bit more on my happy garden painting.
I'll post about the sisters another time but share
my happy garden today.
I don't think I've shown the textural elements of this 
painting yet… but it really shows up with the bright colors
I just added.
The letters and numbers are made with molding paste
and one of my favorite stencils.  I just put the 
stencil down on the canvas, used a putty knife to
layer a coat of molding paste over the stencil
and then lifted off the stencil…
leaving the raised images!
They run along the top of the painting above the flowers.
There is also a fleur de lis on the upper right hand corner made the
same way.
I like the progress of this happy garden so far and am looking 
forward to seeing how it turns out!
Thanks for visiting and reading about my art…
happy painting everyone and
have a fabulous weekend!
