Painting featured in Etsy treasury for the 18th time

My painting titled 'Panama' was featured in an ETSY Treasury along with other work from the talented artists on Etsy. 
Artist: Lynda D'Souza
Title: Panama
Size: 8" x 8"
Medium: Oil on Hardboard
Cyndy owner of the 'Out of Doha' antique store curated the treasury. She sells vintage and antique decor pieces from repurposed or upcycled objects to industrial and shabby chic items. One of my favorite pieces is the cast iron weighing scale. Please pop by her shop to check out more of her products.

Screen Printing serviettes

We screen printed serviettes to match the FHC card and I created the artwork using the same font from the invite card and added the date of the event. We matched the blue shade to one of the colors used in the invite card's artwork. We love screen printing as its a project the whole family gets involved. I do the artwork, D creates the screen and the girls run back and forth with the serviettes.

Last year D helped the girls print Valentine day cards for their class mates. Click here to read the post on the husband's blog.
