cherry's cherries

 Heyyyyyy Youuus!  Popping in late this evening to share a project we were asked to make over at Canvas Corp.  They sent us out 4 x 4 canvases to alter.  We were to create something that shared a bit of ourselves and our art.  I think mine does just that!
I started with grabbing my favorite old vintage milk cap, Red and Ivory ticking paper, red seam binding mixed with ginghams, old rhinestone button, and metal embossed border that I aged myself.  All things I adore! 

but my favorite of all???   These vintage ceramic cherries...with the most perfect kitschiness. I finally found a home for them.  These things all symbolize my love for the old and aged...things with history. My art always has a touch of that.  I love layers and dimensions....things that make you take a second look.   Of course the cherries are loved because they reflect my name. 

Here is it all done and sitting on a little easel.  It just makes me is so me!!! 

 that is it for me......hope you enjoy!  hugs, cherry
