Friends Are Like Pretty Parasols

Friends are like pretty parasols.

They shelter you from the rain.

They come in a variety of colors and shapes.

(Sherry's painted parasol)

They open their hearts and share abundantly,
and they close their eyes and love unconditionally.

Friends are like pretty parasols.

They make your surroundings more beautiful and tea time more delightful.

Yes, Friends are like pretty parasols.

(Fannie's painted parasol)

I am grateful for all my pretty parasols.

Sherry and I finished our parasols today. The paper parasols were purchased from Hobby Lobby for $2.50 each.

We also played with Neocolors and silk paints. So much to share; so little time.

Happy Mother's Day!

Artfully and gratefully,

Parasols inspired by Alisa Burke's parasol tutorial.

These are amazing Fannie, beautiful work.

Sherry said...

These were so fun to paint. Thanks for thinking of this project Fannie. It will be lonely going home to the empty studio.

Those are such fun and something anyone can get at the store. Not sure if I could paint them so beautifully, though.


Fannie said...

Thanks, Vicki and Stephanie. These were easy and fun to paint.

Sherry, hope you had a good time.

Thanks, Martha.

Janet, posted just for you! ♥♫♥

Debbie, it's easy to do. Design one pattern and repeat it on each of the 24 panels. It looks complicated, but isn't. Try it. ♥♫♥
