I love curiosity….it runs hand in hand with creativity!

~*~

To folks outside of the Decorative Art world….sometimes our surface choices are hard to understand or recognize….and that is the beauty of our Art ~ we can paint on anything!

We have some pretty clever ideas on ‘creating surfaces’ to paint on as well.

A follower on Instagram loved this ‘corn on the cob’ ornie painting and asked ‘what is that painted on, I don’t understand?’…..Well I guess to some we paint on some pretty  fun and interesting things…..I just love curiosity!  It opens up a conversation to spread the love of Decorative Art!

For the ‘Going to Market’ Painting Club the ornie wood was designed for many useful purposes….and cut by Sheila Landry, gosh I love her work!

Here are a few ideas to start you off…..

market 1

How about an ironstone bowl filled with marigolds with this ornie tied to the bowl….giving hope to a friend who is under the weather or a simple gift for a friend with a green thumb.

market 3

Thinking of a new neighbor and how to Welcome them to the neighborhood?…..fill a basket full of jams, jellies and homemade bread ~ tie the ornie to the basket handle and add a special message.

market 6

Tie the ornie around your napkin and utensils at your next Thanksgiving dinner……add a name for table placement!

market 7

Tie up a bag of popcorn for Movie Nite….stringing on this ornie, add a ‘corny’ message to the bevel inset.  A keepsake to remember a fun evening…..

A treat for your child, cookies and milk !….add a magnet to the back to hang notes on the  refrigerator door!  Place a name in the bevel inset for each child!

market 2

A gift for a favorite teacher, tie the ornie to the apple stem…..add a pin to the back ~ to add to her favorite market bag or denim jacket lapel.

market 4

And of course ~ add to a stack of Christmas Cookies.  This will be a treasured keepsake ornament for their Christmas tree!

Or add to a small wreath and hang on a secret pals door!
