Simple beauty ~


I couldn't stand it anymore....
it was time to make something!

Last week a gave you a peek at the beginnings of this new piece ~
so instead of more fluffing on the house, I chose to finish it!

While making art, I always have so many ideas but
it seems I end up with quite simple pieces.
Maybe I under-edit but I just want the elements that are there
to stand alone ~ to show their beauty.
I could add tons and tons more things to this piece
but the simplicity speaks volumes to me.











She's now listed in my Etsy shop too!!!
And she is now sold, thank you so much Melissa!

Thank you for visiting me sweet friends....
Have a wonderful Friday,
hugs and love,
Dawn

It's a beautiful piece, Dawn! I know all about the need to create something ~ I've been packing us up for our move and have had to find little, quick things to do just to keep my sanity!

She is beautiful, the piece is beautiful, what a wonderful way to hold a photograph in high regard. I don't know how you can sell her, but I'm hoping that you have scanned her. I'd love to do something like this with some old family photographs.

To me less is more with vintage elements. I love this beautiful piece, Dawn. The girl in the photo is gorgeous. This is just so lovely.

Dawn,
She is beautiful! I love the elements you used, all of them so dainty & old. You left it alone at just the right time, not too little, not too much. I'm sure it won't be in the shop long!

As usual, this is sweet as can be (just like you). Love the drawer handle "pocket" of posies.

Oh Dawn ... ce cadre est merveilleusement mis en valeur par une multitude de petits détails qui font de ce portrait une véritable oeuvre d'art !
