More art in the yard

I have certainly had my share of fun this summer!  My garden is filling up with "P" named spots.  This is the painting spot.  Over in a corner, I've started preserving some of mom's paintings.  Mind you, these are paintings that she gave me to cut up and use in scrapbook projects!  

Picked the easel up at goodwill for $5 and covered it with Thompson's sealer.  Then sealed the painting and decoupaged it to plywood with layers of clear sealer over it.  Hopefully they will last for the next 20 or so years!

My friend, Linda Peterson, has been playing with chicken wire lately.  I saw some photos online of wedding gowns formed out of chicken wire and decided to give it a try.  Not the easiest thing in the world!  But hey, Linda, don't you need one of these in your front yard???

I've decided that most gardens have Scare Crows.  Well, my garden has a Mrs. Crow....or perhaps this is the ghost of the artist past?  How about the "invisible artist???"


Two new aspen trees were planted in the corner. Next spring, I plan to transplant day-lillies to match the painting and I think sweet peas would look great winding up and down the dress.  There are more paintings to be sealed to plywood and hung on the fence.  Eventually I want to paint the fence white and paint flowers up and down it.

When you come to visit my garden (eventually) you will be able to walk along paths and look for hidden objects, find the "P" spots and hopefully, enjoy yourself!  I've shared the "Potting spot" and now the "painting spot".  Wonder what I'll work on next?

For those who haven't been, it's even more amazing in real life! Good job, Jen.
