Sweet Sixteen & Happy Bloomin' Tuesday

Again, you may want to click on photo to enlarge and see details more clearly of this wall hanging.

So what do you do when you have finished one huge 65 hour art project? You make another immediately using your scraps and you build 16 mono prints into one wall hanging to give to your grand daughter who turns sweet sixteen next month! The process for this piece was exactly the same as my large "!" However, I just had to cut out smaller shapes from previously painted scraps/left overs from the other piece, and sew each one (they are much smaller) so this went quickly...probably four or five hours max to piece it all together. Now to make sleeves for both this and "!" and notes for the back with explaination and name, date, etc.

Now to figure out how to use the 16 pieces of candy I bought and turn them into an art card! Sweet! Get it? ;-0
