Who doesn’t love roses?
I love growing them, drying them, sewing them with silk ribbon and painting them
If you would like to learn decorative painting it is easier than you think as you build on your skills stroke by stroke…….it is similar to the way you learn the alphabet or a musical instrument, rather than being born with “artistic talent”. I believe everyone is born with some creativity but often lack of confidence and self doubt gets in the way of it! I didn’t start painting until I was 55 and many good painters only take it up when they retire.
I teach arts and crafts on cruise ships, and one of my favourite things is seeing passengers who have just completed a craft project for the very first time.
I also run workshops in my garden studio near Edinburgh.
If you want to start painting there are many helpful links with ideas, tips and projects.
There are hundreds of projects for all skill levels on the DecoArt site
I painted these cards with DecoArt Americana Paint on black card. …….it is a quality paint with a smooth consistency and comes in a wide range of colours
Give it a try…….you will love it!
