I still can't throw anything away.

A while back Patrick had the hack-saw out and asked if I wanted anything. I requested some little slices of dowel scraps.

Basically I was still in love with the idea of painting gouache on wood. It's so fun! So I took the little coins, sanded them down and drilled a hole through them.

I have a bunch of IDEAS for them, but I wanted to get one started first. In typical egocentric fashion I used an A from my Rob Roy book.

Then I painted it and some little floral designs around it.

After it dried I outlined it all with a nifty Sharpie Pen.

I'm still not sure what I will do with it... or the rest of them. I should probably varnish or something to protect the surface. Any ideas?


  1. Oooh! I LOVE your A :)

    A few ideas:
    - Gift tags
    - Pendants (for jewelry)
    - Ornament

  2. Too cute!! umm...and I clicked on your link for the Rob Roy type book! and GOOD LORD! you have a real treasure!! :)
