Swaps & Fun Art

This cute little heart paper mache ornament I did for one of my art groups. Covered it with pattern tissue paper and then added the rosette and the cupid. The cupid has stickles on it. The rosettes with the cupid looks great on a card too.

Bottle caps were the theme for my other art group this month. I painted a canvas with watered down tube acrylic paints and then stamped on it to give it some texture. Die cut the flower from a Tim Holtz die and Basic Grey Out of Print paper. Made leaves from a book page and doodled a little with a charcoal pencil. Oh and added the words I printed on the computer. I loved how it all came together!

These fabric hearts were done by my friend Donna J. I think they are sooo cute!!

I bought this magnetic chalk board this weekend. I have been wanting one for so long and had made a small chalk board from a silver tray, but it was not magnetic and that is what I really wanted. There is even a place to stash the chalk and hang something off it!
