Painting Dolly Style

Although I love crafts, I am not a painter. I can’t draw and my stickmen are definitely not in proportion. When I saw this project in A Hot Glue Gun Mess, I knew this gem had a future home in my livingroom.


As you can see, I not only found material for this project, but the picture frame for our twig art project as well.

2. In your very best scrawl, paint your truth.


3. Display on easel or hang with pride. Puff your chest out and strut.R. Dolly
