I did find this little twig laying in the grass and I picked it up. I have seen on several sites that I visit, artists painting on sticks. They are just beautiful! I have made my own walking sticks before, but, have never painted on sticks, so, I thought I would take it home and give it a try. I got my sharp little knife out and whittled off the bark and using a light-weight sanding paper I had, sanded it down to a smooth finish.
I then gave my hand at painting designs on it, and I have to say it was harder than I thought it would be, as being so tiny and trying to hold on to it. I then took wire that I use to string necklaces with and attached different colors of turquoise and attached it to the string. After finishing I tied a piece of leather I had and attached to both ends, and I just love it:
I think it turned out lovely and I'm very pleased with it. Enjoy! Blessings, Deborah
