Watercolor + Salt Bookmark

Here is another fun project using watercolor and salt.... creating a bookmark for my swap partner. I used to draw seahorses when I was younger and decided to look for a how-to drawing as a refresher course. This is the result.

Tangle a Scripture Postcards

I decided to join a fun group swap... "Tangle a Scripture" for the Christian Swappers Group. Both of these postcards were sent to 2 different women in the United Kingdom.

The one above has a mistake that I didn't notice until I looked at the photo. I forgot to add the chapter. Hopefully my swap partner will add that in for me.

This cute little was painted in watercolor and sent to my swap partner. It was hard to part with this ATC because I love owls so much.

Framed Art for the Home

I decided to add some framed art to our home and this is just the beginning.

Let's start with my 8" x 10" Doodle Sun that has been outlined with colored pencils, painted with watercolors, and nailed to an 8" x 10" canvas.

Next is an ACEO size folding frame with my favorite ACEO's inside, placed onto my bookshelf. Some of these art cards have not been posted on my blog.

Lastly is my children's art that I framed and placed in the dining room. Both my girls have been drawing and painting with me all summer and these are what they decided to frame. I stuck their masterpieces on some scrapbooking paper with some corner stickers and placed them in  two 8" x 10" frames.

Hope you all had a wonderful Summer...
