Play on the Midway....

Hi Everyone!  I want to show you one of the things I started working on, but have not finished yet.  I started with a scrap piece of luan and painted it sky blue.
 You can see in this picture that I sanded the paint away from the edges.
 Then I started working on painting a Ferris Wheel.


  1. Looks great so far! :) I'll be right here to see it when it's done.
    Hope you're having a great weekend Holly,

  2. Holly this is so cute! I thought of a baby nursery first. Can't wait to see the rest.

  3. This is so cute! Thanks so much for sharing at Mix it up Monday :)

  4. That is a really, REALLY great drawing of the ferris wheel. I love it! Now I want to ride on one - it';s been far too long!!


  5. Hi there, I really love all the things you make. If I'm not mistaken I have not yet seen you make a print on canvas yet from a picture on a piece of paper printed by a laser printer. Apparently you take a piece of canvas and put a regular gel from a craft shop onto the canvas. You then take your laser print picture, cut off the white edges off it and lay it face down on the canvas on the gel. Leave till dry for a few hours or overnight. then take off the picture by spraying water on the back of it, then put gel on the picture transfer which is on the canvas to seal it.
    I don't know if you can use hair gel? I've never done this before but it could be great on canvas cushions or for what I have to make for my sisters promo company.
    In my case I have to make 'free' cell phone pouches for seniors who buy Tracfone SVC cell phones which they can hang around their necks for emergencies. This phone has bigger buttons and letters on the screen and costs $15. I was thinking of using this printing process to print various graphics on the canvas cell phone pouches. I think this printing process is cheap. I was wondering if you'd like to try this printing process as a blog project, I'd be interested to see what you would do with it.
