Rose Window

If you've ever taken a coloring class with Karen Lockhart, you know that one of her challenges is to color her images with a color theme. It's something that I've carried along with my work since meeting her two years ago, and this piece is no exception! I love yellow and blue together, it reminds me of French Provincial.

I have decided to create a series of these framed pieces with all of the beautifully illustrated Window Images from Lockhart Stamp Company. (If you're new to my blog, {and I am so happy to have you here!} then you may have missed this previous post when I created a similar project with the Tulip Window.) I think they'll look great lined up together! Here's a closeup of this beautiful Rose Window:

You can see that I cut out the center of the window, popped up the image on foam tape and layered some yellow gingham paper behind it. The Itty Bitty Jar of Jam looked so perfect there - just like it was on the window sill! I am so pleased with the way this image turned out! It makes a great next installment in my little framed grouping.

Have an amazing day! Be well.

Too cute and why did I not know that you made such beautiful things. They're as sweet as you are.
Big hugs from England.
