Every rock hound in the world will gladly tell you about the natural beauty that is all around us... granite, shale, quartz, marble, soapstone... the list goes on & on... rocks come in many different colors, shapes and sizes... no two rocks are exactly alike... this makes collecting them a fun and popular endeavor!
As an artist, it's the shape that attracts me... a perfect and unique little 3-D canvas that lends itself to creative inspiration! Recently, one of my favorite swap hostesses at AFA came up with a Painted Rock Swap... of course, I couldn't resist joining in on the fun and I signed up! In my excitement, I had forgotten that all of my rock stashes were still covered in snow... after a few frustrated weeks, I managed to fight the elements and I finally found some rocks that were just what I needed!
Let the ARTing begin...
Each rock measures about 2 1/2 to 3 inches & the designs were created with acrylic paint, then sealed with a glossy clear acrylic spray.
(since the object of this swap was to create rocks for use in gardens
and flower pots, I left the back side natural, as it will sit in dirt)
I'm happy that you popped in...
Until next time, Blessings to One & All!!
