There was a gentleman in my shop one day. After looking around for a while, he said, "You'll paint on anything that sits still won't you?" I laughed and said, " Yes, I guess so."
So I guess today's post bears that out.
These are my hand painted stones.
I begin with smooth, clean stones.
It doesn't matter what size or shape. Then I give them a few coats of a clear spray paint. This gives them a little shine and helps seal the stone so the paint is not absorbed so readily.
I write the words first with a small liner brush.
Then, I add the leaves.
The petals and the center of the flowers.
I use enamel paint, because it stays on well.
Here they are, finished and ready to go home with someone as a reminder of their trip.
I almost forgot the most important thing. On the back I write the words Beersheba Springs.
The stones can be a message.
Or a promise for someone you love.
Beersheba Springs is a wonderful place. My home and shop are located about one fourth mile from the United Methodist Assembly. The assembly is housed in a former pre-civil war hotel. The UMA at Beersheba Springs serves as a wonderful retreat for numerous churches and groups. People say Beersheba Springs is so peaceful and special. I think it is because there have been so many prayers lifted up on this mountain top. I only want to add to everyone's experience by making Mountain Home a truly special place as well.
Hope you are having a wonderful day.
See you soon,
