Start with a Flower

Okay, just cuz you say so Suzi Blu I will :) I cheated a little. I did not have an actual flower in front of me. i just thought of a flower, and pulled out some paints. I usually make everything pink, so I wanted to do something more vibrant. About two seconds after I started painting my 5 year old wanted to help me. So, I opened out my journal and let her paint on one side. She painted Scooby Doo, a heart, and a smiley face. The heart she said was for me! Awww! And of course as soon as she was done she wanted me to be done, so it is strictly a flower painting. I was wanting to experiment with layers. I have the hardest time forcing myself to cover up something else. I love the way it looks in other peoples art work, but I think mainly I just have this fear that I am going to cover up something decent with soemthing that is crap. Gotta get over that ...

Lil Dancer

I think I finally finished this. I was trying to figure out what to use for the quote ... not the wording, just the lettering. Found the black letters in a box of my old high school stuff when hubby was clearing out the garage. The white rub-ons I have had for years, and I am surprised they had not dried out. Oh, and the little heart tattoo is from one of Katie's own stash of temporary tattoos. Anyways, guess it is ready for my daughters wall, if I can ever figure out where to hang it!
Quote is one I came up with :
We dance not because we can hear the music
We dance because we can feel the music!
