Note to Self "Start Creating!!"

Here I am again still behind on creating....I have promised to list art to give away and so I dig in my archives of STUFF and find things I have created and need a new home until I can get it together (when will that be?).

So a little giveaway for the next couple weeks. I am giving away this cute little 5X7 memo board and 3 vintage button magnets.

I used a chippy shabby chic frame and got a piece of sheet metal from good old home depot and used a collage picture of a German Antique Doll Head (collage sheet from where else but Retro Art Cafe.

I then applied the collage piece to the metal sheet with Gel Medium and after it had dried completely, I put vaseline over the picture and painted everything pink. After that dried, I simply wiped the paint and vaseline over the face away and assembled in the frame. I then added some vintage lace and rosettes to her necklace to give her a 3D look. With the addition of magnets to buttons....a cute little memo board.

Post and I will draw a winner on July 15th. thanks for visiting.

What a wonderful giveaway! Pink is my favorite color, so I just love the picture. Cool idea with the vaseline. I have to keep that in mind.
