I don't know if I'm posting in the right board (could be more artsy than crafty) but I figured that they fit in the crafty housewares board too. If not, let me know and I'll move this post!

Anyways, three small canvases (15x15cm) with a kitchen/food feel. I used dried slices of oranges, dried chilipeppers and cinnamon sticks. Painted a border and canvas, glued the food items on and added the wire. The doors in our apartment are grey and we both like the color blue.

What do you think? (yes, I know they are hanging crooked in the picture....  Grin)

Thanks for the sweet comments!

Anyone have any ideas of different food items that can be preserved/dried and still be slightly colorful? I have a couple of friends who want me to make these "paintings" for them but I wouldn't mind using some different decorations....

Really cool idea! I may steal this in a few months when I move.  Wink

Other foods that might work are wild rice, pasta, beans, nuts, seeds, dried whole spices like cloves... These are all smaller and would probably have to be arranged in some sort of pattern. Maybe using a couple of shapes of pasta or types of beans (lentils, navy, kidney) would work too. Raisins, craisins, dried pineapple, candy would probably all have to be sealed because of the sugar.

Ohhh, I like those ideas. One of my friends is crazy about candy (she can eat anything she wants and not gain anything!) so I could do a candy theme for her.

I love craftster - great getting feedback, opinions and advice!!
