To gather . . .

These beautiful images are by John William Waterhouse ~
I've given this first one to you before and I never tire of it....
and second is so lovely too ~




And still in the gathering theme....new artwork!
A shallow drawer assemblage with a treasure pocket ~
A gathering of beautiful pieces of nature...
for purchase in my shoppe ~
SOLD....Thank you so much!!!!








Should you tire of the nature items....
they all can be removed to display another gathered collection!



Remember the chubby bird stamp that you all loved?
This is the set that it came from called "Bird Notes" from Crafty Secrets.
I purchased my set from Gail at Shabby Cottage Studio....
I'm not sure if she has any in stock right now but you could ask...if not just Google it!
That row of birds is one of my favs too!!



Here are a couple of sweet little Valentine's giveaways for you!!!

Dawn,

As usual you have outdone yourself and this new artwork is fantastic! I love that the items can be rotated out, what a great base piece for seasonal or holiday collections.

How do you like working with clear stamps? I've never used them.

I'm so glad I stopped in to see your post today, it gave me a great idea on what to do with a little blue train case I got a couple weeks ago. As for Waterhouse, I love love love his works...I have a huge print of Knight, by him. Thanks for sharing!

Sylvia said...

Oh boy - I am going to do this - I have my Mom's old suitcase with the pocket and can't wait to do something like this.

Pop over to my blog Lilyspadandpetals for a Valentine GIVEAWAY,
Sylvia

Thanks for the info on the stamps. I thought that they looked familiar and sure enough I have the set. That's the hazard of buying things and putting them away and then forgetting about them. Beautiful art work by the way!

Dawn, my goodnest, what a gift you have and for the world to embrace your art. Everytime you create a piece it sells so quickly. You are gifted and blessed. I think people can tell the difference between the retail people and a gifted artist. We put our heart in every piece and that is the reason. LOVE your blog and admire you and your art. bLessings, Marta.

That has to be one of the best assembled art I've seen. I just love it.

Dawn, Your drawer assemblage is breath taking absolutely gorgeous....what an inspiration you are!!

Leanne said...

Dawn, you are such an enabler! I just started a book collaborative and one of the gals is using birds as motif. Those stamps are perfect!

(And to enable others, they are on sale at Joann's)

Diane said...
