It was a bright and sunny day in Bellevue and Rainbow Belle was in her garden.
She decided to paint a pretty picture of a ladybird for her friend Butterfly Belle.
She painted a bright blue sky...
She painted a big green leaf...
But when she came to paint the ladybird, she couldn't find her red paint pot!
Rainbow Belle looked everywhere for her red paint pot...
She looked in the bushes, but there was no red paint there!
She looked all around the studio in Pot of Gold Place where she lives,
but there was no red paint there!
She looked behind the tree, but there was no red paint there!
She couldn't find the red paint pot anywhere. What would she do?
Just then, Love Belle fluttered by.
Rainbow Belle told her friend all about the missing paint pot.
"I can't finish my ladybird picture without it!" said Rainbow Belle, sadly.
"Have you forgotten your favourite thing?" jingled Love Belle.
Rainbow Belle looked puzzled.
"Your enchanted paintbrush!" chuckled Love Belle.
Rainbow Belle had forgotten about it.
When she dips it into magic dust, she can paint any colour of the rainbow!
Rainbow Belle quickly fetched her handbag
and dipped her paintbrush into the magic dust.
She closed her eyes and wished very hard for red.
A few minutes later, she had finished her ladybird painting
and what a beautiful red ladybird it was!
Rainbow Belle and Love Belle fluttered together
to give the lovely ladybird painting to Butterfly Belle.
Butterfly Belle loved it, of course,
and the three Magic Belles jingled together in harmony!
The Belles had so much fun, they spent the rest of the day painting pretty pictures
with the help of Rainbow Belle's wonderful, enchanted paintbrush!
