~Give of Yourself~

And here is my VERY FIRST "Works of Whimsy" (I think that is what I am going to call my paintings) onto wood! I am very happy with the way this painting finished up, but the pictures didn't turn out the greatest.

The title of this painting is, "Give of Yourself", because as we all know, when you give of yourself, you are better for it and giving of yourself...is the best gift you can possible give!

See, I went to take pictures and my kids had used ALL 3 sets of my rechargeable batteries. I had to charge them and by the time I was able to use them, it was dark. I added texture to the edges and the flying heart, it looks so neat in person. I hope to take better pictures for the listing on Tuesday...


I used paper, glitter, crackle finish, pencils and stamps. I think she turned out pretty. This piece roughly measures 10 x 12 and has a hanger on the back. I believe I am going to list this on ebay, to start on Tuesday and end on Sunday.

I had a lot of fun with this piece, but am still learning (and have a lot to learn). This piece took me longer than I thought it would...I think I could have made two dollies, in the time it took. *smirk* Isn't that how it goes, when we are learning.

I hope you all had a good weekend. I have much to do this week....as I must start getting things going for the Mercantile update, on the 1st. I didn't have anything for this month on either of my selling sites....and I must get something done for both sites this month. Have a great Sunday evening. Toodles, ~Tonya
