Pink Saturday and a Giveaway!!

See this little bag...it didn't look like this when Beth at Gathering Dust sent it to me. It was just plain as could be. Well, I spritzed it with a few colors of Glimmer Mist. When it was dry I painted this nest, using metallic paints. I'm going to give this bag away for my "just because" GIVEAWAY!!! Not only am I going to give the bag away...I'm going to put a couple of goodies in it! That part will be a surprise!! So, leave me a message on this post...if you post my giveaway on your blog I'll enter your name twice.
Now on to "PINK" This cup pincushion is on my ebay listing.
This sweet sugar bowl will hold a pincushion real soon, I just purchased it
I made this 3" square "Charm", to go on a tree, or a package, or a wall hanging. I painted both sides. I used 300 lb. hot press watercolor paper. I added it to my ebay.

this plaque is something I painted YEARS ago. It's in oils, I didn't have a clue what I was doing.lol. I don't keep to many things that I paint, this is one of the few.
