Paint Party Friday!


This week I continued to stick to my plan to finish a few of the workshops I had signed up for this year! My painting this week is from Tam's Christmas Whimsy mini workshop....


A Whimsy is a Folk ARt girl and it's a style I really enjoy! I sketched the girl on paper and then added her to the wood. I used Golden Acrylics, Caran d'Ache watercolor crayons, Faber Castell Pitt pens...and glitter! Lots and lots of snowy glitter!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy PPF!

I have never been able to do whimsy so admire anyone who does. I agree, it would make a fabulous Xmas card. Happy PPF.

Love this little Whimsy! Your color pallet is just gorgeous as well. Just curious...what size is the original? It looks wonderful in small format on my screen but I think the original must be larger. Happy belated PPF!
