Home is

Where my heart lives {amongst a polka dot sky }.
Well today was a fun day for me, summer vacation is almost over since it's always summer
 in Puerto Rico, I can not say summer is over...
I have been taking care of my daughter and two of her friends and I was looking for a cool project that we could do together.  So I decided on a piece of canvas they could do to decorate their room.  I started with a Donna Downey piece of printed canvas and an iron on tree.  I can happily say SHE introduced me to gelatos!!! They were a dream in my hand I could not get enough of those little chapstick shaped babies!!! Finally they arrived at my doorstep, a full set for me to enjoy and I have been happily playing ever since!
After that I drew a rustic house and my words got all wrapped up in a kite's string;)
they crossed my "t" and went down to lives, hugging the tree

I had a "Monet" moment, LOL, I was going for the impressinist movement with my artsy flowers in the fields!!!!  They look the part...
I just love I could paint a polka dot sky, for that I used the Art Grip Aquarelle # 143, using a dot mask
they matched the polka dot leaves in the tree perfectly!
sketchy begginings to
after writing my words in pencil I used a PITT big brush marker in black and a red one
 for the ♥ word.
I used gesso and a stencil for the roof and the finger for the clouds
the words got filled with 2 different gelatos a metallic and a flat one, I can totally see the shine there
and loved it so much I framed it and hung it on my wall
It's such a cute summer cottage!
Now go over and play with Mou's challenge over at the Faber Castell blog
and over at CCCB polka dot challenge
Happy creating my friends
 Thanks to the ladies over at CCCB for the
 Spotlight Artist Badge
happy dance!!!
