Another :)



I tried another piece using Sharon's technique. Of course, since I didn't have small canvases, I had to recycle a wooden plaque. I was also out of soft gel medium so doing transfers was out of the question. Instead, I adhered scrapbook paper with Mod Podge :)

I wanted to find a quote about going home or memories of home but most of the ones I found were too long and I just haven't found the right one to sneak in there. Or maybe I should leave it.......not sure. Will think on it some more.

We got about 6+ inches of new snow yesterday. I'm so very tired of winter. I want Spring and all the good feelings that come with it.

Off to do a little blog visiting myself..glad you stopped by! Have a great week!
