“mitten~mitten … who’s got the mitten?”

well… i do!  and in fact, i have quite a few…  and they are all framed up in sweet little pairs on watercolor postcards.  this was one of many projects shown in an online class i participated in earlier this fall, from sweet talent junelle jacobson.  the “art of goodness” was a lovely class {as always} but i really fell for the adorable mitten project in particular. 

simple supplies:  scrapbook paper. modge podge. watercolor postcards.  white acrylic paint. watercolors.  an {optional} bit of glitter. and lastly, black pen for a few whimsical details or words.  

from my heart  to yours~

by the way, i used strathmore watercolor postcards, ordered from amazon.com:

and, then i thought christmas trees would be fun {they were!}

in case i forget to tell ya ~

{i had a great time!}

simple supplies… scrapbook paper, watercolors, white paint, glitter, mod podge, a brush, black pen.

  3. Your cards are great! I must tell you – I had our quilt guild's Christmas party at our house last night, and had the table runner I won awhile back as the centerpiece on one of the tables. LOTS of great compliments on it. I really wanted to tell everyone "I" did it, but of course I didn't do that – told them I got it from a friend. Kudos!!!

  4. Прелестные открыточки! Очень-очень новогодние 🙂 Вообще мне ваши работы нравятся, всегда с удовольствием читаю Ваш блог 🙂
