Wood Frame , Polkadoodles image! Kit and Clowder retreat!


Hello there crafty friends,

I would like to share with you my project that I started at the “Kit and Clowder” coloring retreat in Orlando FL. The owner of K&C (Alyce Keegan) came to the USA from Australia, and did 2 retreats, one in California and one in Florida. I was so blessed enough to attend the Orlando retreat. Here is one of the projects that we did there.


The only part that I did at the retreat was the priming of the wood. I painted them with Gesso. However, I have finally finished this project, and I am proud of myself for actually finishing something. (That is not a DT project.)

What happened? Why didn’t I finish it there?

Well as you can imagine a bunch of crafty women…. late night chatting, etc…. So my roommate and I over slept the morning that this project was being shown.

I did meet a super sweet lady through this event that lives close to me. (Another blessing.) So I went to Sue Hall’s house and she walked me through fishing it. Sue let me have her “Peace” wood piece, mine came w/ “Faith,” and she also gave me the tiny metal dragonfly charm that is in the center of the filigree wood piece at the top, and the purple rhinestones. The rest of the wood pieces are from Alyce.

I didn’t like the way my original colored image turned out, so I bought the one you see here from “Polkadoodles.” I like this company’s image better anyways. For the back ground of our image Alyce had us use watercolors, however when I redid my insert image I didn’t use watercolors, I used my Copic spray system. I also colored this image with Copics. The name if this image is “Octavia Moonfly Dragonfly” follow the link to get her.

This was really fun to put together, especially with Sue and her letting me use her crafty stuff.

Thank you for stopping by, thank  you for your comments.
