A Productive Weekend....

I had another good day on Sunday and then this morning I got up and did a couple of things. I added to the lacey picture I showed yesterday....

Last night I cut the rose stencil using a photo I took of a rose in our backyard. For some reason the color is showing much darker today.

And I had done the background of this one earlier and this morning I added the birds....

Since I didn't have any blue spray paint I had to smush the paint on through the stencil but it worked ok.

And this piece is done on a cardboard that backed some 12"x12" scrapbook paper....

The blue that is showing up is actually white in real life! And if you can't read the quote it says " the shadow lies like wine within a cup of marvelously colored gold"....I used a paint pen to write the words, then sanded them back to look old and worn. This piece has so many layers of paint!! But I like the end result.

I hope you all had a great weekend, too.
