New Paintings Roses and Bird Nest

Last night I gessoed some canvas that I had. I then added Goldens Absorbant Ground. I painted the background and altered the texture of the paint. Then a little rubber stamping, a touch of inking, gel med, glazing med, then the painting of the rose and leaves. I then did some gluing and stitching...made this little pocket, it can hold flowers or tuck a little letter inside. I really like how it turned out.

This is the other one I made last night. This one I made to sit. I added a piece of cardboard to the bottom. A little jar to hold the flowers...
Don't for get my two giveaways...scroll down...one is the postcard and one is the 3 tags. I'll be picking winners tomorrow.
My blogging buddy Diane has these wonderful suggestions "
Picture it hanging from a door, or on a hook on the wall, or from the knob of a cabinet...or next to a pretty dressing table...
Also lovely to tuck a gift inside!
Or potpourri
