***Surrender to LOVE***

"Ageless, Eternal, Timeless...Surrender to Love." I just finished another sheet metal wall hanging and wanted to share it with you! I used vintage lace and a copy of a Valentine postcard from the early 1900s to complete this piece! A handpainted wooden heart and some jewels and here it is!! Romance is all around!!

**Turning Sheet Metal Scraps into Art**

My husband works for an airline and has been helping me out with my latest projects! He takes scrap sheet metal and cuts them into the shapes I need for my work, then I paint and embellish them as needed! This has been a fun and new 'canvas' for me and I have been brain storming!! I paint and seal the pieces and then I can embellish as you can any other background! Holes are cut in the sheet metal pieces with a drill and I use wire and beads to weave the borders. I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I have! I am working on more of them right now so tune in later to see what I have done! Thanks for looking!
