Quirky and unique.
Maybe some hand painted things that are one-of-a-kind. Like this fun little number the Large Wooden Buffet.
Alpha Stamps and here is how it started life....
I gave it a coat of gesso and then white paint.
I used the sap green paint to lay the dark green ground for the center painting.
It gives the piece a mellow, softer appearance.
I found this awesome image on the Alice Plays Croque Collage Sheet (actually, the big boss found it for me, she's good that way) and reduced it down so it would fit into the frame, which originally had a mirror in it, but I wanted a cool picture.
It still needed alittle something, so I painted some more flowers and added a few mushrooms.....
And here it is. Alice's Buffet. Now I just need to fill it with treasure from the rabbit hole.
See below the supplies list for a (very) brief and easy tutorial on painting tiny mushrooms and flowers.

One way to paint little mushrooms and flowers.
Super easy! And I am sorry for the photographs... everything I snapped was an inch or shorter, so it was a bit of a challenge and my picture taking skills are minimal.
Mock me if you must. Just do it elsewhere.
Start with two weird shaped triangles, one on top of the other...
Not hard, right? You can even add a bit of white to the 'light' side of the mushroom. Get creative and play with colors if you want to. It's fun.
Add some grass. Play a bit!
Note: I used a very tiny brush to add the finer details, a 3/0 white round.
For more coverage of the bigger bits I used a 6 filbert.
Make a petal by making a triangle-ish shape with the small end pointed toward the center.
Make three of them.
You can always do the stem first if you want to.
Add a bit of black to make a center. And make a few leaves by doing the triangle technique you made the flowers with, but start from the stem and go out.
Don't overload your brush or you will make globs. Do a few practice runs with a scrap piece of paper.
Thank you for stopping by!
