Out looking for cushions

Yeaterday while out looking for cushions a few extras fell into my basket. I bought two small canvass and I thought they would look good decorated and put on the wall of our newly painted living room. I decided to delve into my stash cupboard and play with some 3D paste that I bought many years ago at a workshop and never used. Out came my stencils, paints, inks and stamps. When the paste was dry I painted them and hit a brick wall 'what do I do next.' A friend suggested looking at Finnabars blog. I had a quick look last night and my head was bouncing with ideas. Up early this morning I started decorating and am pleased with both pieces.
It took quite a while to put all the seed beads into the bottle but it reminds me of when people came back from there holidays and brought back bottles of sand. The second is much simpler and uses painted grungeboard for the handcut flowers.
We did finally buy new cushions but it took visits to another four shops to find them. Thanks for stopping by Debbie

These are both lovely & special - brilliant having your own artwork on display & you can co-ordinate the colours. Thanks for link too.
Cushions can be hard work to find - we're midst the same & haven't succeeded yet.
