Exotic Bangles

(Designs by Patience Campbell, published in the Decorative Painter Magazine)

taught by Barbara Englund

Don’t throw away your Spring 2009 issue of the Decorative Painter. The patterns and pictures for these pretty Bangle Bracelets are on pages 129 -133. Plan to kick back, relax and enjoy an informal day painting these delightful bracelets. I am going to paint “Parrot for a Friend” and “Goodnight Giraffe” in class, but if you would like to paint “Pretty Boy” or any other design, please feel free to do so. If you have any questions, please call me at: 775-1981
