So I wondered around my yard and found some rocks. I then washed and dried my rocks.
I didn't paint all of these last night. After starting the first one, I realized I should have "primed" them with some gesso. Instead of just stopping and doing that, I pushed forward with one and it took HOURS! We all make mistakes that cost us time...but at least my time was relaxing and the kids were sleeping.
Lots of layers were put on. I think at least 3 coats of red. 2 of black. That's a lot of drying time.
All those coats. Totally worth it in the end. I think my painted ladybug rock turned out beautiful. She will sit somewhere in my budding flower garden out front. How I love spring...how I love that it looks like most of my flower garden survived me neglecting it during all these hard freezes we experienced this winter.
Maybe she will sit in the yellow flowers that I forgot the name of.
I think I like her better in my purple shamrock. It's more festive that way...since it is March and St. Patty's day is right around the corner. I have a lot more rocks to paint. I wonder when I am going to get around to that?
