Most of these don't have holes drilled yet in the pictures. All are handpainted.


This one has a slight shimmer in the black and pink paint. The sides and back are pink.


My favorite color Smiley One of the greens is metallic.


The green one and it's black/grey buddy.


My favorite one. I was too excited about this one to wait for a photo so the sealer isn't quite dry ... that's why it looks kind of milky. The sides and back are painted that fabulous metallic turquoise.


Cherry blossoms with a crackle finish. A bit blurry. Black rubbed into the cracks. The sides and back are painted black with loads of red glitter on top. Kind of a reversible one, I guess.


Here's the back. Blurry.


More cherry blossoms with crackle. Pink this time. and I rubbed pearl into the cracks and painted the back pearl.


I don't know if I like this one. Maybe smaller rhinestones would look better.


I just really like that turquoise. And glitter. I like glitter.


I felt like making sweet and pastel. So this is it.




The heart is glitter. Mmmmm ... glitter.




Just because I really like the sugar skull ones. They took me the longest.

I love all of them! The cherry blossom and the turquoise swirl heart ones are my favorites. Did you cut the hearts out yourself or did you buy them that way?

These are beautiful!  I'm guessing these are the pre-cut wood shapes you can get by the bag, but you'd never guess it to look at them.  I love love love the ones with the crackle finish.  What did you use to finish them that made them so shiny?  Are all the designs painted freehand?

They are pre-cut shapes, but they were kind of lopsided so I had to do a ton of sanding to smooth and even them out. I used regular craft acrylics, artist's acrylic (craft acrylic white is not opaque enough), and the turquoise is Folkart fabric acrylic. But really, the only difference between fabric acrylic and regular craft acrylic is that the one for fabric is more flexible. To seal it, I used Mod Podge on some and on others it is a half/half mixture of Golden's gel medium and Liquitex medium. They are all freehand, but I was inspired by some scrapbook paper for the swirly ones.

Thanks for the compliments!
