Lil Prim Portrait


I'm loving my day in the studio. It's peaceful and fun. I'm putting in a hard day of play. LOL I had made a littl "prairie portrait" for a prim friend. She liked it so much, I had to make 3 more. Her sister, sister-in-law and friend had to have one. Giggle. They were so fun I had make another for ebay. Pictured in my ebay offering. I have to get the frame yet. It's been another busy week, in a string of them. So I got directly out of bed and headed to the studio with a big mug of hot coffee. It doesn't get any better than that. I got my artsy head going and a way I went. I love when I get an idea and things go fast and good.
I'm loving the Plaid Modge Podge matte, it's perfect for my prim stuff. FolkArt's One Step Crackle is awesome. I won't use any thing else. You can see the crackle on the pictured portrait. It's as subtle as you want, or thicker and bolder. It's a perfect product with a little practice. I top with FolkArt antique medium. When completly dry. I use a top coat of matte varnish or bees wax. I don't use glass on my prairie portrait frames.
