Here Is My Latest Piece...Finally

This piece was created using a re-purposed window, blue acrylic paint (painted on the back of the window and a little red and yellow on the front flowers), various shades of green, yellow, gold, and purple tissue paper, glued with MOD PODGE Gloss glue.

Love using tissue is so light, comes in a variety of colors, and it holds together nicely when glue is being applied. I tear strips of tissue paper...and layer it for texture and the same way I would combine paint colors on a canvas.

I love finding old windows! Those who know me...also know that I love them...and collect them for me when they find them. Love it!!!

Cool Find!

Found two old wooden, white framed windows on the side of the road yesterday after dropping off my son at daycare. A great find. Really there were four...but didn't want to look too greedy :-) so I took only two. I hope to begin working on one of them once I write this post. I have the baby asleep...wish me luck!

Coasters on Stone Tiles...Women in Spring Dresses

My Coasters are made on stone tile. I used acrylic paint for the sun, flowers, and head/arms. The dresses are paper cut to my desired shape, expression, and look. I glued the dressed down first with decoupage glue and let dry...then I added the paint. After they are all dry...I sign the backs and spray with an acrylic sealer for moisture protection. Finally...4 felt dots are placed in each of the corners for surface protection!!!
