Painting Pile Up

I can't believe how fast this week has flown, I suppose with a trip coming up and 3 craft shows I am going to be doing has kept me quite busy and time is not wasted. Somehow I have found time to do a bit of much needed personal shopping, making homemade granola bars, the usual housework, cutting out things to take with me, paper trimming, stamping, embossing images, distressing paper with my inks and packing.
I also wanted to do some sealing of my painted items as I still needed to do that as things were piling up but the finishing is what takes the time to do as well.
These items I worked on last week and I am so pleased with how they turned out.
The snowmen wreaths were fun and really quick to do. I just love snowmen and these designs are by another fav artist of mine Renee Mullins. I decided since the snowman hats were to look like birdhouses I needed a birdie so I took one of her birds off of a pattern in one of her books and enlarged it a bit and had it sitting off to the side looking for a new home. These wreaths all had something different on them at one time and never sold so I thought they would be something you could hang on a door for most of the winter since they don't have to be hung up just for Christmas.

This snowie is my fav with the hat pulled down over his eyes. Sorry the pic looks dark, we have had a lot of rain and dreary weather, guess I should have had better lighting. I must have been looking at him a little crooked as well. Oh well I never said I was a photographer.

And next are some mixed media signs I did.
Oh these were fun and turned out better than I thought they would.
I have a feeling when I return from my trip I will be doing more of these.
I hope they are a good seller at my craft shows.
I think some Home and Welcome signs would look nice with vintage photos.

Thank you for dropping by and I do appreciate your comments.
Til next time, be creative and happy.
