Pretty Dotty Dolly's

I've not been sleeping well lately, and during one of my nightly excursions into my workroom in the dark hours recently I came across these bundles of dolly pegs. I'd bought them a while back with the idea of using them in an art project but had never got around to doing anything with them. So, wide awake and wanting something gentle to do until sleep returned I armed myself with acrylic and metallic paints and sat about changing them. I was really pleased with the results I'm thinking i'll add some inspirational quotes to them and bundle them up with a pretty ribbon and tag, set them on a nice vintage dish and sell them in the shop!!!!

...and metallics

All the colours
