12 days of Christmas - Day 11

This pretty button heart is from Joan. It is a smaller version of her pretty Christmas tree picture that she made out of old jewelery which is beautiful. This is a beautiful heart too and I think it might become some more of my Valentine's decorations too. Thanks, Joan. I'll always think of you when I see it!

12 days of Christmas - Day 10

Day 10's gift was a felted heart from Gwynn that I put on my library cabinets.  I think it looks very pretty there and I think it would look pretty for Valentine's day too! Thanks, Gwynn. I know that I will enjoy this pretty heart for a long time.

12 days of Christmas - day 9

Day 9 was a pretty Christmas Hangie from Carol that I put on my antique Hoozier Cabinet.
I know I will enjoy this for many years to come.  Thanks, Carol.

Word Art - Love Paint over postcard

This is a postcard I did for my online art group, AAWA. This is a magazine picture which I did a paint-over on. My paint-overs are first drawn on with a permanent black pen. Then lightly dry brushed with white gesso. Then I water color over the picture. I also used stickles on this postcard to give it a sparly look. This postcard is for Joan. I hope she enjoys it.
