paintpatyfriday/ pastel finished!

Thank you all for your encouraging comments last week!
I think I got back to most of you and if I missed anyone will try to get to you this weekend!

I did not have a mat to fit the painting exactly. I used 1 slightly bigger and found some paper to put under as a background. thenI centered the painting on the top of the paper. I adhered it with "red sticky tape"!

Oh Peggy! My mouth is watering over all the wonderful color! This is beautiful, and I love the fabric (I'm assuming!) border. It's perfect with it. I know a perfect home for this if you tire of it. Have a great weekend.

ps...i just re-read, and saw you used paper! I have fabric just like that--haha! I'm not awake yet.
