Hi all!! So for christmas I wasnt in the position to spend! So I found plain oval cuts of wood to decorate at the Dollar Tree and an idea was born! My 8 year old daughter is into anime, zombies, Tim Burton films and stories, creepy cuteness and more. She is at the age where she thinks she is too cool for toys and really wants to make her room a cool hang out spot. So I came up with this!! I am pretty skilled at meddling with the crafts, and I can draw but I was terribly nervous about painting... that is about the only thing (besides lapidary and quilting) that I didnt think I could do! But, I gave it a shot. There are actually 3 paintings total but this thread is for the one I did of Edna Scissorhands. I sketched up what I wanted beforehand and transferred the image to the wood. Enjoy!!

I took progress shots:

So gorgeous, you make beautiful art. I love the eyes, they are so vibrant and even and proportional (for the style, especially).

Do you prep your surface beforehand? Always curious on the behind-the-scenes parts of artwork.

Way cute! I also like to use those wooden cutouts I find here and there. I especially love the lace and bow, it really adds a gothic cute touch to the finished work!
