You're so sweet. 21

Mona Pendleton | Monday, September 5, 2016 @ 6:10 PM | , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are off to a great start of a new week! Today I have a couple of projects to share that I created for my sweet sister Tina. First up is a rather clean and simple card featuring button cherries along with lots of white space:
I inked up the sweet cherries stem image from the PTI Everyday Button Bits stamp set then stitched on a couple buttons. Doesn't get much easier than that!
It's Day 4 of 30 in 30:
Up next is a 10" x 10" painting featuring a bowl of cherries that I painted for Tina which was inspired by an online art lesson presented by Hall Groat Oil Painting Video DVD course.
I'm so thrilled to have learned how to paint cherries! Now I can incorporate some in my still life floral paintings:

For card sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the current MOJO Monday sketch challenge:
I'm linking this painting to the current Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)

Well, this really is the sweetest! The button card is so appealing in its simplicity...
And the painting is real as real-looking can be! I said before...sometimes when you show a painting, I think it is an example from one of the artists you follow before I read that it is you!
