Reproduction- obviously! :P
I drew this when I was about 12. My daughter was cleaning and found this old photo copy of the picture I drew. I colored the photo copy in with colored pencil. I remember being really proud of this back then. Still pretty darn awesome!

NOW is the key

~NOW is the key~
Medium: Mixed
I used waxed hemp to tie three scrabble letters to a 2.5" metal craft key. I added burlap fibers and a gold wire to hang it from. I made this as a gift for my dear, darling husband to remind him that NOW is all he has and NOW is all that matters....and NOW is just fine ;)

Kelly's Heart

~Kelly's Heart~
Medium: Mixed on woodThis is a 3" balsam wood heart that came out of a hanging frame below. I drilled a hole in it so it was hangable. I painted it pink and dusted it with Perfect Pearls. I adhered mesh and paper roses in layers. The words are computer generated and printed on photo paper. I added a silver cord, fibers and some gems for texture and covered it all in Diamond Glaze.
Gift for my much loved sister in law, Kelly Davidson.

Shhh Prayers Door Hanger

~Shhh... Prayers Door Hanger~
Medium: Mixed on wood
This is a balsam wood door hanger I bought at the dollar store. I painted it cream using acrylics and drug a lighter cream across it for dimension. I stamped a simple border along the sides and added the Baha'i Ring Stone symbol at the top (as this is a gift for beloved Baha'i friends) I adhered paper images of flowers, a horse and bird. The words are printed on photo paper and the entire thing has a coating of Diamond Glaze over it.This is a gift for Lauretta and Russ in NC.
