Plaques for an Outdoor Play House

I've been busy painting more outdoor plaques, I love the pink edging on this plaque, this one is for a garden play house, it's the second one I've made for Dolly, the first one was painted back in September 2011, now Dolly has a sister a new plaque was needed, you can see the first  Dolly's House Plaque here.

I love that my customer has come back to me 3 years later requesting another plaque and something I was really pleased to do.

A Garden Plaque with Glittery Edging

This next plaque was requested for a Garden Play House with a 'Wizard of Oz' theme but instead of Toto I was asked to have a White Westie in the picture....

'Over the Rainbow' Play House Plaque

There is glitter paint on the rainbow and the water droplet. I received a phone call from my customer who was really pleased with the plaque for her grandaughter and gave me wonderful feedback.

The glitter doesn't show up very well in these photographs, if you have any hints or tips how best to photograph glitter and sparkle I'd love to hear them.

I'm linking this post to the Handmade Harbour Link-up, I do hope you can join me.
