Having fun with the greeting cards gave me an idea. Since I can’t be endlessly making greeting cards until the ones I have put into the stores sell, I thought I’d still have fun with the idea and make some mini paintings using the same technique.

After cutting all the pieces for my cards (had to share how pretty they are)…

…I had some left over larger pieces which I mounted to an art block with some Golden Gel Medium.  Here I have the canvas attached and weighted down with my grandmothers old iron while it dries.

After it dried fully, I trimmed the edges and added some of my cute flowers and voila!
