Just finished this one this morning. Had such fun. I painted the background a bright pink...let that dry, then painted over it with a pretty green, scraping it off with a plastic card. After it was dry again I went over the entire page with a pink hi liter pen. Then I finished it off with a coat of an orange Twinkling H2o paint to give it some sheen. I have a hard time remembering where I get these images. Some of them are from Nancy Baumiller, and the wings may be from Suzan Buckner and other images from Mary Dover Publishing.

It's a beautiful day today in the mountains! The rain is outta here for a few days! Glad we got it but so nice to see the sun!!! Don't we all feel so much better when the suns out???!
Hope you all have a fun, creative, adventurous, relaxing weekend!

What fun you had with this one! It's great! I know what you mean about the sun, but I'll take the rain -- please. In a drought here in the tropics! (Hard to believe, I know!)

That background is worth all your hard work, Shelly. It's a rich and lovely setting for your barefoot contessa with the wise advice. This one's a beauty. Well done!
