Poinstettia, learned from "One Stroke" reusable teaching guides.
InstructionsWith the One Stroke technique you learn a series of strokes. Putting those strokes together produces a lovely flower. My painting is freehand, although you can purchase Donna Dewberry's books as they have patterns in them.
Type of item: Functional
Style: Holiday, Traditional
Wooden tray, Folkart acrylic paints, Donna Dewberry One Stroke brushes.
What was your inspiration?
I signed up at a local craft store to take a class on painting a "Poinsettia Tray". The lesson plan required that the tray be painted black in advance . I showed up on the appointed day and time (with my black tray) to find out that the class had been cancelled. I was determined enough to find teaching guides to learn to paint the poinsettia.
What are you most proud of?
I don't give up easily when I have an interest in something. I continue to pursue it until I learn. I love learning new crafts and etc.
