A Vintage Christmas ♥ Comfort & Joy #3 ...

 If I ever need a little inspiration, I need look no further than outside.
Woodland Walks with Archer are wonderful for clearing heads and filling pockets :-)
On one such walk, I came across lots of bark pieces.  Each one was unique.
A few pretty twigs and an idea was born!
These little wooden frames can be picked up at the Dollar store.
Lay bark strips across wooden frame to fit.
They cut easily with scissors, but I like the bark to overlap the edges of the frame slightly.
Adhere with hot glue.
Embellish the front with twigs and Acorn caps.
Find a small image to frame {3.7 " x 3.7"}
I painted a few little watercolour birds.
A sweet little gift for your Nature loving friends ♥
I am on Instagram now.

Just beautiful, Deb! I so admire your artistic ability. I have long wanted to be able draw and paint and have decided to embark on that journey this next year. Any advice on how to get started? I've always been especially drawn to water colors and colored pencils.
