Fork Easel with Miniture Rose

Thank you ,Thank you, to everyone for leaving me such nice comments about the spoon easels.

The forks have such a long handle and most of the design is on the tip, it leaves a perfect place for a snippet of lace, old buttons and a pearl.

I really like the texture on hard watercolor paper that the Ground Absorbent did, I tried it again, I also like the background being watercolor and doing the rose in fluid acrylics. This one I varnished.
I added "WISH" to the handle

How neat would these be for a dinner party, use them as placecard holders
Winner of my nest charm and fork easel is Cynthia of Cynthias Cottage Design,
please email me your address.

Laurie, the jewels, lace and words you added all take these easels to the next level! I've seen the fork easels before but not decorated like yours are. They're perfect for inchies.

Hi Laurie...Thank you for the LINK info.~ I'll be sure to try it!
To get the copyright on the right hand side~ I added it with the gadgets. Hit the little orange blogger symbol, brings you to your dashboard. To the right of where it says "NEW POST" in blue~ there is a layout choice. Click layout. Selected "ADD A GADGET" asks for a title & caption. I put my "copyright request" in the caption area...I think it's important to have the statement~ that way people can't use it & claim that they "didn't know they couldn't"~
I hope this works for you!
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday~

So cute, AGAIN! You're right, they would be cute as placecard holders! Wouldn't it be fab if you could find some tiles the size of placecards and painted a little pic in the corner...they they would be DRY ERASE placecard holders!!! How cool would that be!?!

Hi Again Laurie!
The picture of the ocean was taken on the central coast of CA. It's one of my favorite places (2nd only to Disneyland!). My hubbs and I make our way up there as often as we can. It's just so beautiful & serene there and it's nice to just be able to "slow down". Have a great weekend and thanks for coming by my blog!
