.... More Plastic Plant Pots

Gee these take up valuable stash room :-)
All sprayed and sitting drying with Plasti-kote Plastic Primer - my DecoArt Paint Adhesion Medium is too precious to use on large pots like this.
Not sure yet what I'll paint on them ?

Decisions, Decisions - will wait until tomorrow -time for bed, I need my beauty sleep !

One down Four to Go !!!!
Snowdrops a design by Yvette Smith
Another day tomorrow - wonder what it will bring?
Two down, three to go !!!
Chrysanthemums - the basic design for Lesson 6, comma stroke repetition, another variation of a classic technique. Jazzed up with square stenciling.

 
Thinking bird houses next, but which one?
