Tonal oil paining of Trees


Oil 48″ x 60″


by Shirley L. Hays

This is my first tonal painting.  I have mixed feelings about this painting. One minute I love it the next not so much.

Altered Envelope Challenge

Roc at The Artist’s Nest hosts a monthly altered envelope challenge.

This month the challenge is to have a heart and the word love. I used scrapbook paper to make the envelope.

  This is my first time making an altered envelope to trade.

I learned that you do not enclose anything inside the envelope.  It’s decorated and mailed naked.

I could not help myself and put a message inside.

 The person who gets my envelope may not open it but you never know so I put a message inside.

Silken Ease Scarf ..frogged!

This scarf is an easy knit and it looked pretty in the store but I don’t like it now.

The left side of the scarf is has a mistake through out the whole side.

The center pattern is nice and would be beautiful once blocked.

The yarn is fantastic, it’s soft and  I will use it in another project.

Flower Bookmark

Wanda at Artist’s Nest hosts a bookmark swap every month with a different theme.

This month it’s flowers.

Here is my bookmark made with watercolor and micron pen.

Altered Rolodex

This rolodex is a calendar.  Each card is cut by hand.

They each have a date for everyday of the month.

This project was a little more work than I had expected but the results were worth the effort.

Not sure how I am going to use this little treasure.
