Memorial Day Fun...

My husband's grandma had been wanting to create these images she'd seen during her recent trip to Arizona.  She bought a book of how to paint rocks.  Sounds funny but it's actually quite impressive what you can create on just a plain ole rock.  Here's what I completed.  This is also my submission for the red, white, and blue challenge on PBD's community pages.

 Here's the rock...

and here's the final product...

I did have a bit of time left and I decided to make a little market.  I personalized it, Gale is the last name of my husband's grandparent's.

 We're hoping to make a little town, maybe a church next - we did find a perfect rock for that.


  1. That is so neat! What kind of paint did you use to paint it?

  2. Thanks much! I used outdoor all weather acrylic paints.
