A Handful of Daisies E-Pattern By Donna Hodson
E-Pattern by Donna Hodson includes color photo, drawings and full painting instructions.
This ePacket contains complete step by step directions, progression photos, line drawing and finished photos. This is painted on an oval stretched 8” x 10” canvas with a string of beads glued to the outer edge. This is painted with DecoArt Americana Acrylic.
SURFACE: The oval 8” x 10” stretched canvas was purchased at Hobby Lobby by Master’s Touch. I
purchased a string of ¾” beads that I found in the household section. It also had pink beads so I removed
them and restrung the white beads and glued them to the outer edge of the canvas. Other surfaces can be
used or you can reduce or enlarge as desired.
