Creative Tuesday -theme Store fronts

Creative Tuesday

Mr. Tea and Toast as our gracious host.
Theme
Store Fronts

This was one of my first 
watercolors done back 
in 2008.
I darkened it a little on Picnik
Maybe someone out there can tell me what kind of store front I have. LOL 
 I think the next shop is a flower shop.

Go here to enter the world of
Creative Tuesday
I bet you will want to try your hand at it.

I took this idea from a gift bag that I had hanging on a peg in my daughter's bedroom.
I love the picture.

Queenmother, this is just wonderful. I actually like it BETTER than the original canvas bag art you started from. It's more bright adn cheery. Love it. Great job. so funny that you actually had a storefront piece already, of all things.

A lovely store front, really like the colors!

Wanda said...

QQM ~ I just read your comment on Mr. Toast's blog, and am so so sorry to hear of the loss of your pet. We have experienced that too many times. Being pet lovers, we have had several funerals and burials.

I hope after a time of grieving, I hope you will be able to get another dog.
