Hand Painted Heart Bookmark

I've been working on some bookmarks for my Etsy and Artfire stores. I posted this one on Etsy. It's a simple hand painted bookmark with 3 multi- colored hearts. I love hearts and what they stand for.

Mocha Child

I recently received a special mention from All About The Buttons that really made my day. She took the time to highlight blogs and bloggers that she thought were special and I made her list! I thought that I would pass the torch to another blogger and wonderful artisan -- Mocha Child -- she makes spectacular cards that are truly stunning.
This one is one of my favorites. I love the striking design and the contrast that she uses in the layout. Just beautiful! Make sure to stop by her Etsy shop and check out her work.

Mixed Media Art Card

This is a blank mixed media art card done using colorful torn handmade paper, beads, and coated yarn. I used 140lb watercolor paper to create the card blank and the piece is mounted directly on the front. What I like about these mixed media art cards is that they are cards and gifts rolled into one as they would also look great in a frame.
