Lovely Week 4 Winner and Some Canvas Awesomeness

>> Thursday, April 29, 2010


Congratulations to Pamala!!! You are the final winner of our Lovely giveaway. Please email kristenATlilybeedesign.com with your postal address, so she can send you your prize.

For those of you who entered our Card Sketch Contest, stay tuned. We will announce the winner very soon.

Take a look at these amazing canvases created by Lily Bee Designer, Ronda Palazzari. They are to die for! I want all three for my own home! When these hit my inbox, today, I wanted to drop everything and paint. I adore these little pictures of goodness and I love her message, "come, sit, chat".





I asked Ronda if she wouldn't mind sharing a bit about how she created these with all of us. Here is what she had to say:

"I started out with 3 blank canvases. I used gesso on the canvases making many textures on the background. I then painted each canvas with bright colors to compliment the Lovely line. After they had dried, I used the rub-ons to complete the background. I sealed the backgrounds using Mod Podge. I knew I wanted a wingback chair, cupcake, & tea cup….something that said “Come, Sit, Chat.” I found a clip art wingback chair I like & sketched it out. I also sketched out the shapes for the other items. I wanted something on each object to be 3-D. I also outlined the objects to give them more of an impact."


Thank you for sharing, Ronda.

Happy Thursday!
