Painting the Merry Mobile - part three

Hi Everybody... Robin here.

My Mojo visited me last night and I painted the background of the Merry Mobile.  I used my 3/8 WASH Brush with only an occasional visit from the 5/0 SPOTTER. Wasn't I a big girl!

First, I began working close to the details.

Then I put on my Artist's Beret and painted the rest of the Background.

 Merry Mobile Ice Cream Truck

It was fun to paint on the canvas. Remember, I am not a trained artist. I'm just a girl on a mission to bring the Merry Mobile Ice Cream Truck to life.

I'll let the canvas dry for a few days while I rummage through my Stash for the best threads.  Have I told you about my Stash? It's quite Healthy.

Looks like this project is ready to take off. Ice Cream for Everyone!

Thanks, Robin


  1. I am very impressed! Very impressed. You did a great job Robin. Can not wait to see what you do stitch wise and what your next painted canvas will be.

  2. Thanks, Sharon. That really means a lot to me coming from you. I think I am going to embrace some of the "Barely There" stitching techniques.

  3. Hi Robin,
    You did a fantastic job painting this canvas. Not only a great writer of stitch guides now a painted canvas artist. You certainly have a lot of hats to wear with photography, DVD's and newsletter. Cannot wait to see the stitches you have picked for this piece.

  4. This looks fabulous! I cannot wait to see more Robin King originals. I also can't wait to see what you and your magic needles do with this piece. Thanks, as always, for sharing your talents with us.

  5. Thanks, Missy. You are so kind.

  6. Hi Linda. This has been fun. Now I must bring it home! Glad you are there to cheer me on!

  7. This is looking good. I am impressed with your painting skills. The ice cream carousel will be ready for business in no time at this rate.

  8. Thanks, Jane. I really appreciate all of your encouragement. Currently I am going through my Stash. Haven't found the right things yet, but I'm not at the bottom of the Stash either. This is too much fun!
