Wedding sign

 I was asked to make a wedding sign for the reception so this is what I came up with....having done the front I thought the bride would not have any use for it afterwards, so on the back added the names and date of the wedding for her to keep at home.

Halloween Black Heart

I had a couple of these hearts left over so spray painted them black.

Put on a large spider and skull on the first one then added ribbons
On this one added a hanging skeleton and spiders etc. This is an easy Halloween decoration and quick to make too.

Glass Painting

                                       My first attempt at glass painting using Alcohol Inks
This turned out lovely I think. I added dimension using outline paint.  

After finishing off a bottle of vino Colapso I decided to wash it out, remove the label and printed off this Halloween one. I tied some jute cord around and then added my little spiders. A great cheep idea for Halloween props.

Wooden signs

 A few little wall hangings I have been working on of late....

This one is for a Bride to give to dear friends she cannot include as bridesmaids. My customer ordered three of these and was very pleased.
Next this is a one for a Dad from his sons...a bit of a joke one this but what the customer wants the customer gets lol..x
It says bring wine and Nibbles
A little Christmas Wish list complete with peg note holder.

 This one says it all I think with pegs to hold the pictures

Next  I spray painted it with Heirloom White satin finish Painters Touch by RUST-OLEUM
Added a bit of vintage trim and there she is in all her glory lol!
