Handmade Monday...#9

Its Handmade Monday time again.
Last week was mainly taken up with getting things ready for the craft fair on Saturday. I also had a few commission cards to make, I posted one of them in yesterdays post.
As usual I have been painting, I made more door hangers,

Close up of rose buds

Close up of daisies

Close up of wild rose and butterfly
I made matching coasters

Different butterfly coaster, it has been sprayed afterwards with glitter spray, the photo doesn't do it justice, it looks quite pretty in real life.

Another poppy candle.
I also painted a couple of daisy candles, but forgot to take photos.

A poppy notebook.
I also painted a large hessian bag with the poppy design, it was very difficult and I had to emboss the whole design afterwards as the painting didn't show very well. Think it will be one of a kind as I won't be attempting that again.
If you want to see what everyone else has been up to, then head on over to Wendy's blog 1st Unique Gifts she hosts Handmade Monday and has a list of other crafty blogs to visit.

I would like to enter one or all these gifts into Quirky Crafts Challenge - A gift for mothers day

Love these gorgous door tags. The flowers are exquistie as is the poppy notebook. Just wish i could draw and paint. I have signed myself up for a painting class at my local craft shop but the first lesson this week was cancelled due to the instructor being ill. Now having seen your painting I'm itching to learn even just the basics.
