Peek @ Peony Hill


Good evening everyone.

I have a peek for you of Peony Hill.

You wont believe how I framed it. I tried to get a special frame made but it was going to take until the end of the month. I needed to release this sooner. So I made my way to Michael's craft store and found an 8 x 10 frame and got a nice green mat. Well I knew I would have to cut the mat a little because my design is a little bigger than the mat but much to small for an 8 x 10. So I carefully cut the mat and oops, a piece of the green paper came off. I needed to finish this so I got out my bottles of paint, 3 shades of green, 1 of pink and a white. I sponge painted the mat and let it dry. I like it, not the same greens but oh well I still like it. I will show you tomorrow after I take some photos at the shop with some sunshine.

Have a good evening
