My first paintings!

I painted on the cutest mini canvas' for the first time yesterday...it was so much fun! My friend, Gloria, has been doing it for a while, and the mini ones are so not intimidating, so she had me over to her house and we spent the afternoon creating! I guess I am really into black right now...I used crackle on both paintings, and black on both...we even broke out Gloria's typewriter! The sizes are 3"x3" and 2"x2"...

I made this one as a birthday present for a friend (I love the saying on it):

...And this one just for fun:

I think I might do more of the 2"x2" ones, and mount them on the front of my newly acquired American Crafts Albums!!! Have fun creating! Smiles to all!
