I felt so honored to be asked to teach at our Convention Extravaganza, but even more, I am humbled when asked to share one of my pieces of artwork for our Operation Smile auction. This year I created a shadowbox frame using Sangria.
This paper is beautiful. The gradient and chevron patterns mixed with the flowers and complements make this a very elegant piece or your home. I used a combination of Sangria paper, Sangria complements, and the Sangria assortment.
Just for fun, I thought I'd share the photo of Monica Wihongi, our Chief Communications Officer, holding it up for auction. She was dressed perfectly for it, don't you think?
I am overjoyed that this piece sold at a high enough bid to pay for one cleft palate surgery! Are you familiar with Operation Smile? I invite you to visit their website to learn all about the way they heal children's smiles all over the world!
