And here is how I started. I confess that I knew I was going to paint three faces and did not want to paint the faces on the canvas.
Hence, the text.
Just being different.
I knew the dresses would be collage down the center.
So the game I played was to work on this canvas for 15 minutes and then go and clean or do laundry or put some of this stuff up or just anything that needed to be done.....
for 15 minutes.
Then back to the painting for 15 minutes.
Pretty tricky because at this stage, it needed to dry a bit.
I won't show the stack of laundry that I folded.
I stenciled with doilies and stamped with homemade stamps.
Just random fun.
Just random with no thought except the snapdragon napkin would be incorporated in some way.
Then I spent 15 minutes organizing some of my stuff.
The Mr Police Person was watching and questioned if playing with my stuff counted.
Of course, it is something that needs to be done.
I was challenged to use three different pallets of colors for my Wall Flower Angels.
Actually, I knew COLOR was going to be bright and vivid and many.
Do you see the hand that my muse snuck in?
When there is paint left on my palette, I usually remember to use it up on the canvas somewhere. Even though it will get covered later. It gives a nice starting layer.
I knew I was going to use the narrow strip of wallpaper.
So I painted the blue and used a stamp to add texture between the strips.
This is a close up showing the use of stamp to lift the paint from the wet blue and then stamp onto the canvas.
Making progress, but this is the point that I usually zone out and forget the camera.

I'm at home this morning but need to get ready to go.
So have a great day.
PS.....do you see the snapdragon napkin? It is there but became insignificant. That napkin is a real challenge and I have a plan for it....but I'm out of time today.
