Gingersnap Creations - Spicy supply challenge - Use Paint

This is my second make as Visiting Artist at  Gingersnap Creations.  For this months spicy supply challenge you are going to use paint. I've gone for acryl paint. I've gone for the more cutesy kind of creation than the artsy type of creation this time. There is a reason for that. I've made som childrens gifts and I wanted to keep it simple. As I'm on holiday I haven't brought ALL my supplies with me, so when I come home I will add some metal charms and other gems to make them even look better.
I bought 4 of these doorsigns at Scraporama-Strømmen this April, I had some x-mas presents in mind.
The acrylic paint and Gesso I bought at a local art supply store in Esbjerg, Denmark.

This first one have the image Ian from the Greeting farm. I've colored him with Promakers. The star is made of grounge paper and a stamp from Artistic stamper (I won the rubberstamp plate as hompage artist earlier this year at Gingersnap Creations). I've paintet it with Dabberpaint-snowcap.
. The golden keyboard is from a chocolate packaging. I've used letters from Jillibean soup( colored with the blu acrylic paint ), Prima and Thickers. The rope looking ribbon is from my findings.

The next one also have an image from The Greeting Farm, this time it's digital and called Dressy Ebony. She is also colored with Promakers. Pattern paper from MM. All letters are Thickers. My little Kitty is bought from another crafter at a marked in Brørup, Denmark. The beautiful pink ribbon is a gift from Lauren. The silverstar is something I've had in my stuff for a few years, don't know where it's from, luckily i brought it with me to Denmark :-)

On the last one, I've used another digital image from Greeting Farm - Chibi Punk Boy . Patternpaper from My Minds Eye. The star and letters as above. The grounge skeleton head from Tim Holtz is colored with the blue acrylic paint.

Hope you enjoyed this and maybe inspired you a little to find your paint and start playing with it.
I'm off packing all my stuff, going home on friday and have a few things that need to fit in the car.
So long.
