Use a Doily to Frame Your Picture!


 Haven't we had a wonderful few weeks of being part of the London 2012 Olympic Games...

What emotions we have been through, as we cheer on our countries, watch in awe as Medals are won, shed tears with the athletes who didn't win, but admire their courage in adversity...

Phew...and next are the Paralympics, so keep watching and be amazed at the human spirit, the courage and the achievements in these games.


Today, I thought I would give you some simple but pretty little pictures to paint or colour-in and then frame with a doily.

I have given you two pictures to download and print, but you can use anything you might already have. Here are my two pictures

Old greeting cards are also a good source of pictures, that you can cut out and stick onto your doily.

I printed my pictures on a "black and white" printer and then got out the watercolours and painted parts of the pictures. 

If you would like to see more of my watercolours (ACEO's which are 3.5 x 2.5 inches in size) then click on "My Ebay" top right. 

For those who have never heard of ACEO's!! ... Enthusiasts collect these cards - as you will see there are hundreds of them offered on Ebay. 

I don't collect, but I love to paint them!
