This was the most intimidating task so far! In my mind I kept repeating all the things I have always thought about myself... you are not artistic... you can not possibly paint freehand!
And so I tried...
Here is my first take on Jennifer Rzasa's hummingbird with Distress inks mixed with Perfect Pearls:
And I am so happy that I will try again! OK I could be critical.. the wings are not quite right... but hey... it's a first try at freehand with Jennifer's hummingbird as my guide. The shine is awesome, not so easily seen in the photo though. I need to try some of my other favorite birds... cats... flowers?
