New year gifts...

Did a little rusting a few weeks ago that were supposed to be christmas gifts but will now be happy new year gifts for some gals that keep my art fire burning .Beauty little canvas's that are about 5x8 and smaller.Just the cutest, so thought I would share a couple that are nearly finished.


This is a work in progress ( ok its been about 2 months but I blame RANGER for making too many too many new toys to play with) This has a special gals name on it and I hope you get it before 2009.Just kidding as I intend to get quite a few things finished and posted in the new year.

I promise,pinky swear !


Had some fun with some gesso and the distress inks that with a lighter application of gesso would of been better.Still I quite like these and will use them for something Im sure.


OH and ICICLE dolls still have a firm grip on my attention with beading and decorating (JH thinks my sewing face a little fierce,but her sewing tips were mighty helpful) I think the sewing machine is calling out for another batch.
OH DAWNIE, BEHAVE !
