Summer's Fleeting By!!!!!

Hi everyone.  Can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I last posted.  I received 3 makeover items last Sunday and wanted to get them finished up ASAP!!!!  Luckily, they weren't too hard.  Put a face on a doll.  Repainted a bunny and this pineapple!!!
This is how it came.  All one color with some gold and black showing and turning green in the crevices!!!!
Here's what I did with it.

The pineapple leaves are a dark green and I used a gold wipedown on them.  The other leaves have a black wipedown.  They're a lighter shade of green.  I sprayed just the pineapple today.  Will make it easier to wipe off the brown to show up the pineapple indents.
Sorry, took that pic with a light on, but you see the brown on the pineapple.

Want to thank the new followers I've gotten.  Thanks for following my little blog.  Not much goes on in my world.  I have no life!!!! lol

Getting ready for a 3 day craft show over Labor Day weekend.  Have sooo many projects started, just hope I can get them all done. 

Someone tell time to slow down!!!!!
