A few art pieces I've made in the last few days, and want to share with you.

This is actually my second piece I made and gave away as a gift.   


I used vintage sheet music, an old botanical print, which I colored, and some ric rac on the edge.
The back of my second piece. I painted it using chalk board paint, which seems to be a hot item these days.

This is my first piece. I kind of wish I hadn't outlined my bird in black, it seems a bit harsh to me.

This is my favorite piece. I had a small canvas that I had painted many moons ago, and never liked it so I covered it with this collage. I used a vintage book page from a German book, an old photo booth photo, another botanical print, a punched map mounted on an old poker chip, and finally added the letter G. I thought the gal could be from Germany.


My niece and I went to Antropologie this past weekend, and took a class making these plant hangers. We used many wine corks for this project. I'm surprised mine turned out as well as it did, considering all the wine I had to drink to get these corks! :))
