STRAWBERRY PATCH

Inspire your Heart With Art Day............

Okay so the point of this is to create what you love. There are two things I love and that is birds and strawberries. I have done alot of birds lately so decided to go with the strawberries for this challenge. I found a cute lil strawberry image at Aurora Wings and love coloring it and decided to make a little decoration piece.

The image was colored with copic markers and I painted a spool red and covered it with some strawberry paper. Used red sheer ribbon around top and little white flowers with yellow stickles in the middle.The Strawberry Sprite is glued to a bamboo skewer and put thru the hole in spool. I made a few of these spool decorations at Christmas and thought the StrawberrySprite need to be added to my collection.
