This is the chicken shirt that I painted. It's a design by Doxie Keller that I purchased at the Houston Expo last year.

I have had a terrible time finding a shirt to paint on that didn't cost a fortune. This is just a cheapo shirt from WalMart and it was great to paint on but too big.

I just wanted a casual fun thing to wear and paint with the Folk Art Fabric paint. They are a dream to paint on fabric with but I still haven't developed that loose style I would like to have. I will keep trying.

Not the best shot of me. We were on our way back from San Marcos, TX and stopped at an outlook area to look at the scenery. It was a beautiful drive.

This is the ornament purchased from Della and Company. It is metal and is a slightly puffed pear shape. Hand painted by me from Della's pattern. The ornament is 3 inches at the widest point and 4 inches tall. I have a couple more ornaments shaped like little three part trees. Hopefully I will get those painted soon.

I have been working on another tray painted Heather Redick style with stroke roses. It is a much harder pattern so it may take awhile. I meant to take in progress pictures but I get so involved that doesn't get done.

Until next time Ya'll

Attention Please

Della and Company is a special place for items to paint. They are unique, very well made, and priced well. I purchased and ornament & pattern pack at the Houston Expo last year. It painted well and her directions were easy to follow. Meaning it looked like the picture she had when I got through painting. I hope to post the pictures shortly.

The reason for this post is that they are having a sale. Just got the email today. Check them out for yourself.
