Roses for you

These roses are for my followers and the lovely visitors to my blogspot.
I've called this piece "Rose through my window"
Since painting the piece and looking at it for a few days I decided to apply two part "Craft Smart, Liquid Gloss" to the insert of the frame. It has a real shine and glow to it now, It does look like glass.
I've also been working on this piece. I can only give you a sneak peak. I can't tell you what it is at the moment because its for my sisters birthday present and she just may pop in here to see what I've been up to.
I'll fill you in and show you more photo's after her birthday.Hugs, Anna

Anna, What a lovely rose! And I just love your BLUE BLOG! I wanted to say thank you for stopping by my blog. I am so sorry that you are far away. With Postage being so high now, it would be cost prohibitive to ship that far. If we ever get a fix for this problem, I will be happy to include you next time around. Again, thank you so much for your comments. Blessings! Rochele

Stunning Anna - I especially like it with the gloss finish. It made the vase pop out too.

I bet your sister is trying to guess what her surprise is after seeing that sneak peak. LOL

Wow Anna! You've been busy!

I absolutely love your rose painting, especially with that gloss, it really gives it something extra doesn't it? :-)

Looks like your sister's going to be in for a wonderful birthday treat as well. What a gorgeously thoughtful sister you are!

Have a great weekend!

Hugs!!! Vikki xo

Oh Anna...roses speak right to my soul. Thank you...your painting is truly beautiful.

My husband isn't riding his bike just yet. It is in restoration mode and will be many months being loved back together, and now my almost 17yo has decided to do what dad is doing so we may soon have another bike needing attention for them to play with. I love it! :-)

Serena said...

The roses, real and painted, are gorgeous, Anna! I LOVE the glossy look best too and I'm not generally one for glossy but, sometimes, it makes a wonderful difference. Lovely work all round! I'll look forward to seeing your sister's birthday gift finished.

Thank you everyone for your comments!
Monique, I designed the window frame and crackled it.
Glad to see you're all enjoying my roses, they are now wilting in this heatwave we seem to be having.
