Quick Vintage Painting

I know you all have heard of the *Graphic Fairy* and if you haven't you need to visit her...

The site is full of clip art images and vintage printable's...which are great for any crafter...I found this adorable vintage design...
I grabbed my 8 x 10 canvas board and printed out the vintage design...

I thought that the best color to give it the vintage look was to do the background in Ecru...

Once I gathered all my supplies I was ready to go...

Having such beautiful graphics can make for beautiful art pieces...It was challenging for me but I had a lot of fun recreating something and making it my own...

TAA DAA Here's the completed painting...I'd say not bad for doing a painting that is totally out of my comfort zone...

Here's the original next to my painting....

If you get a chance check out "Graphic Fairy's" website...I'm telling you she's got some good stuff :-)

Did I also mention I need to get back on the ball and blog on a continuous basis like I used to do...I just don't know how my days fly bye like they do...LOL!!!



  1. Great job! Good to see you creating and blogging again...have missed you ;} Of course going back to school full time does take up most of your days now...lol I'll be glad when I'm done purging so I can play and create again...arrgghhh

  2. Wow, great job! I would never dare to do that free-hand! (found you at Show me what ya got @ Not just a Housewife)

  3. This is wonderful, Denyse! You certainly are a talented lady. Love vintage. Kudos to you. I have joined your followers list and invite you to join my followers list; as well,I hope you will grab a blog button. Hugs, Gayle

  4. Okay, handsdown this is by far one of the best freehands i have seen. I recently did some stamping freehand but this, im sacred to try but I will. Too good.
