Frangipani's & Shabby Roses

Hello, Thank you for coming over and seeing my latest pieces!
I've finally finished painting these frangipani's.  There were a bit flat until I added Atelier Oils over the top of the Acrylics, now to wait until the oils dry to Varnish the canvas(that may take a while, it's just turned to nasty cold weather here in Melbourne)

I've been working on this Shabby Roses Quilt on and off for about six months now. Phew, I finally got it finished and I'm very happy with the results. My OPAM for April-Yeah!
 I did choose my own colours, and added Scolloped borders (that's a first for me, I had to learn to cut bias a different way) This pretty design is compliments of Jenny of Elefantz  Jenny very generously offered this design as a Free Block of Month last year.  I'm know you can still purchase the design from her.

I was given this "One lovely Blog award" by Anne at Thank you Anne.
Anne is a great photographer, artist and comedian. Hm, I'm not sure she means to be a comedian but I quite often laugh at her posts.
Happy Painting, Creating, Stitching or designing,
Hugs, Anna

Another bag, Faux Cakes

Here is another bag I've just finished painting.  I'm going to send the bags to my Mum to sell.  She lives in a small coastal town called Eden.
Have you heard the news? 
Kerryanne of Shabby Art Boutique is selling her "Secret Recipe" for faux cakes.  I have the recipe and I've had soo much fun making cakes this week.
My guys are really dissapointed because they aren't REAL and can't be eaten.

What do you give your son's female friend for her birthday?
I'm giving Donna a Faux cake and a wooden birthday card (Yes, also one of Kerryanne's designs).
Can you tell how much I like Kerryanne's designs?
Oh, maybe I should have called this Kerryanne's post! lol
I hope to post early next week with my latest OPAM.
I'm just adding the finishing touches to my latest quilt.
Hugs, Anna

Latest paintings

Here are a couple of my latest designs painted onto Calico Bags.
Ah, Holidays are great for anyone that needs inspiration.  I have another beach babe in mind, I just wanted to show you what I've been painting.

Now, What will I do with all these bags?  I could give them away as gifts or I could sell them.
How much do you think I could sell them for??
Your comments and advice are always great appreciated.
