Bachelor Button Transformation

Bachelor Button Oil Pastel

Bachelor Buttons for Texture Tuesday. Applied Kim’s Pinit9 and then used a layer mask to paint the flowers back in and then applied the Pinit9 again.

I’ve received my first postcards since joining Postcrossing. So far I’ve sent out 11 postcards and received 4 with more on the way to me. I’m one to still enjoy receiving mail, and so far looks like a fun idea. So far I’ve received a card from Israel, United Kingdom, Brussels, Spokane, and Mother Hen’s from Oregon.

Plus this wonderful card from the lady (Mother Hen) whose blog I found and she told me about Postcrossing. See her card below. Thanks Mother Hen for the tip and the beautiful card from your state.

Received from Roberta told me about Postcrossing

No rest for the weary

I have a blister, knees are sore but the porch is STAINED. Bout time after a few years of weathering. Sometimes Summer is tiring because the weather allows to get those jobs done that can’t be in the winter time. Fall will be house paint trimming and garage painting. Bah!! I’m tired already.

Plus, I bought a drill bit and learned how to cut a hole in a glass bottle to insert those little mini lights. Yet to insert the mini lights, but here is picture of the hole. hahaha

Have a great week and stay cool. Weather here has been very hot and humid this week, but going back down by the week-end in Ohio to cooler weather.

  1. I always love Bachelor Buttons! Interesting that they –and California poppies — are considered “invasive plants” in many areas. I would love for them to “invade” the alley behind my house!

  2. Postcrossing sounds like fun – I actually have a small postcard collection. It started when I was a child. A dear friend (cousin) of my grandmother’s would send me a postcard from where ever she was and she traveled constantly. Great photos, enjoyed them all!

  3. Love the transformation on the buttons, and the staining is really hard on the knees but looks like a job well done. I bet you have been admiring it, I know when I do a project like that I go back and look at my efforts over and over. :0

Love seeing your comments. I read each one. Thank you.
