Pink Saturday, Rose, Bird, Shoe, Spoon

**************SOLD***************
Welcome to Pink Saturday!! This is hosted by Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound. I showed this little shoe before...but now it is honor of PINK
Look at the beautiful handle on this spoon!! It is the spoon that is holding the "Spoonful of Sugar" bird...I added a bit of tatting...not done by me, "tattingchic" lol
Then this handle is the one on the easel

Here's how I make my little pictures...I use very stiff watercolor paper, then with my finger I spread on a layer Goldens Ground Absorbent. I dry it with a hair dryer. Then I use acrylic to paint the rose. Next, I add layers of watercolor to the background, dabbing it with a paper towel. It is so much fun, you need to give it a try! I used Goldens gloss med. on top after spraying it with fixitive. I added a bit of vintage lace and the bow is a working pin, I just pinned it on. I'll be selling these on Etsy or my Ebay...Have a great Saturday!!

LOL! You knew I would notice that lovely tatted edging on the spoon, didn't you? It's great! I love it; wherever did you get it? Your spoon easel/painting is lovely, as always!

Don't you absolutely love to go on the hunt for pretty spoons!

After seeing your fork easel, Laurie, I got out one of my antique forks and bent it to hold my husband's grandfather's pocket watch. It made him smile. :-)
