I’m not off my “rock”er … well not yet anyway!
My rock painting continues with bees, ladybugs, houses, ewes, and minions, plus more. Even though I haven’t been out hiding as frequently I’m still getting out to a few places.
It was fun to paint different bee rocks.
Our weather has been really hot, with thunder storms tossed in. So I thought a few rocks with positive message would be nice. I do love to add googly eyes to some of my rocks.
I had lots of fun painting some minion rocks. Like most of my projects it starts with a sketch, then the background painting, some pencil drawing, and then adding details.
All rocks get a coating of mod podge and then get sprayed with a fixative. On the back is printed the name of the rock group and my own name.
Here is my book of ideas for rock painting. It’s the place where I sketch my ideas and ideas that I see. I can look back for inspiration, add notes, add colour schemes, and a lot more. It is a WIP.
The ewe-nique rock matches the crafty side of me with my love of yarn projects. If only sheep came in all different colours of yarn!
My collection of rock houses has increased. The top three were for a gift and the bottom three were added to Rockville.
Are you a rock painter? If you aren’t you should give it a try and leave them around your home town. They will brighten up people’s faces when they find them. And in these trying times we all need a reason to smile.
Be sure to have a look at my rock projects and see all the other types of rocks I’ve painted.

Thanks for the rock tips. Your rocks really rock! For now my rocks have had to stay inside. I have to get some Mod Podge and some sealant first.
Thanks Hetty. I always seal my rocks before leaving them outside, you never know how they will react to the weather. Have a lovely day.
Fun rocks! I especially like the bees. I find painted rocks when I go walking, but I leave them for others to find and enjoy.
I usually rehide any rocks I find while out walking so that others can find them too. Enjoy the last of your days off before school returns.
Such a fun hobby. If I was back in Iowa I am sure I could find a lot of rocks by the river.
I do not see any rocks around my house out here. Should go up in the mountain by my house. Too hot for a hike today. It is 10:25 and 89 degrees.
Such lovely ideas, I especially love the bees and rainbows. Thanks for the great tips too.
I love these they are so cute, you must have a very steady hand Linda, mine always look a bit of a mess nowhere as perfect as yours, I love the sheep it’s perfect for us crafty people. xx
Hi Linda, yes it would be perfect to have sheep in multi colours. My afghan is coming along, doing a bit of work each night on it. Have a lovely day.
I love how you have painted your rocks. They are so cute. My yard is full of rocks and I should do something fun instead of weeding.
These are so cute! Thanks for sharing with Creative Compulsions.
How did I miss these eye-catching rocks? They would brighten my day if I found them!
