As a small gift from me to you to celebrate this special long
weekend, here’s a couple of my coloring pictures.
I hope you’ll print these off for a child or children to color.

Before you print this picture off:
Click on the image to open it in it’s own window.
At the top of your browser on the far left hand side choose ‘File’, then choose ‘Print Preview’
At the top of the print preview page is an option for ‘portrait’ or ‘landscape’
Try both and choose the one that fits the picture to the page best.
Then print the picture off.

Memorial Day Wreath

 

2014-memdayI made this wreath in honor of our Military for Memorial Day.
It’s a small but sincere effort on my part to show my appreciation to the troops past & present and their families for all they’ve given and still give for us. Their sacrifices are great.

Using polymer clay, I sculpted one rose for each month of the year and the pearl centers are for the tears shed for the troops continual sacrifices 12 months a year.

The wreath base is made from newspapers and covered in camouflage fabric. I covered the base with blocks made on a cardboard loom using camouflage yarn.

Here’s wishing you all an awesome week.
🙂
