Paint Party Friday...A Sweet Little Painting



Happy Weekend and Happy Paint Party Friday! This week I took a short break from altering dolls to do a sweet little mail art swap in the True Free Spirit workshop taught by Mindy Lacefield. The style is primitive and childlike, the swap theme was to make a piece of mail art in the TFS style on cardboard, seal it with beeswax and mail it to your partner in an altered envelope. So much fun! I love how the natural beeswax gives a dreamy look to the finished art. This little painting is 8 inches long by 3 1/2 inches wide on cardboard.

If you would like to see what else I've been up to this week...here's my post from Haunted Humpday for this week, another cute but creepy doll bottle....AND...my big announcement, I am hosting a Haunted Halloween Doll Challenge (click to see post) this year! All doll art is welcome but it must be haunted/spooky in keeping with the Halloween theme. Please grab the challenge button to add to your blog and take a look at my left sidebar for other fun Halloween art events. I hope you can join me!

Have a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by! xo

I love this. It still somehow has a bit of a haunted quality to it but it's really sweet and I agree the wax gives it a lovely finish.
