Hi there all! I hope your tuesday is treating you well..I finished up my flower sign mixed media and think it turned out really well..This would look so neat on a sun porch or someones decorated gardening shed or anywhere in your home that you want a touch of Whimsy and spring... The R has a flower from my garden from last summer..I love those flowers..

I put my gift in my bedroom since I have that cottegy look and it is on my shelf next to my bed..looks right at home there too..Thank you again Sue for this wonderful giveaway...

  1. Gina~I am sorry that I haven't gotten back with you about the other mixed media from the last post!
    I love the new Flower one on this post too!
    You are so talented!
    Let me do a little more arranging before I commmit to either one.
    I will get back with you as soon as I figure out a place to display such a master piece!

  2. Wow, that was fast! Glad you liked it, enjoy! As for the vanity, I would use a primer first, that should do the trick, hopefully? Let us know how it turns out!

  3. That sign is pretty cool, Gina! Been changing things up, I see. I need to start making some money. Maybe I should make something that would sell! lmao!

  4. Love your sign, that's really neat!
    What a great gift too ;)
    I think you would have to apply a base primer to your vanity. As long as you aren't sanding it to distress it you should be ok. Yeah, then seal it, I just use water based Poly, satin finish and put a few coats on. It dries faily quick and has no odor...and mine holds up great. I'm sure they have something that can go over it to help the paint to bond.

    Good luck.

  5. Oh I was gonna say too, Man that's one huge cat:)
    and Tucker is so CUTE!

  6. Hi Gina, I've nominated you for an award so pop over to my blog to collect it. Pam xx

  7. oh, those fat little babies!! Wow, your fat girl is as big as my fat boy!! All of that fur... ain't it great?? SO CUTE!! I could just do a snuggle with that furry girl!!

  8. The sign turned out really cool! OMG Pody Ann is so adorably plump! I love your cozy kitty pictures!

  9. OH MY!!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOUR SIGN!!!!!
