And the winner is Linda Minton...had a friend pick a number between 1 and 22 the number of comments on my blog and she picked 14...Linda!! Congratulations....Stay tuned I have alot more stuff to give away!!
For some reason i decided to make valentines this year...could be all the painting and the pretty papers...All but one of these is made from some of that deliwrap paper I painted a week or two ago...who knew it was so much fun to paint on deliwraps.
Deliwraps...what are those you say?? You know the wrappers on your favorite fast food biscuit OR the paper to you use to pick up a cookie or a doughnut at the grocery store...and YES you can paint on them. They are not wax paper...they are translucent with the right colors...FUN stuff!!
The streamers are made from shredding some red and pink batiks...slicing them about 1/4" wide with the rotary cutter with or without a ruler! I probably used at least ten different ones. It's an idea I borrowed from my friend Margaret aka the other Margaret..yes there are TWO Margarets..Margaret Hunt and Margaret Wesley...truly NOT my invisible friend.
