Couch Pillows

I didn't follow a pattern and I didn't have instructions...I just went for it and created 4 couch pillow covers with a zipper on each one for easy cleaning. I am extremely happy with how they turned out. They are the perfect addition to our couch.

Project Completed 10/8/09.

My Men

Art is something that I have enjoyed since an early age. My mother always encouraged us to use our creativity. In High School I discovered that I really enjoyed painting & even took honors painting classes. I am quite proud of my perfectionist paintings that I create. They take me some time, not a day, to complete. I want each line crisp and perfect! And I know my paintings reflect that.

My Men are what I call the three paintings below. I love them! I got the idea from them from a friend a while back, as she was talking about a painting she once asked someone to paint for her. I got a vision in my head of My Men and ran with it. I love how they turned out. They have been hanging in my house in the hallway for almost 5 or 6 years now. And they fit there just perfectly!

Now I Know My ABC's

Many, many years ago I started noticing letters in nature and around town. I finally started to capture them for future use and for gifts. I love giving Nature/Architectural Alphabet Last Name Pictures as gifts. I have also been assisting family and friends with this fun and unique gift.

Putting together letter pictures is a lot of fun for me. I enjoy creating words from the things I have found as letters. I thought I would share some of my completed last name projects.

To view the letters I have available- go to the right sidebar and look under "labels" where each letter is listed individually.









Please Note: The "MelissaLorenzPhotography" Mark on each photo is edited onto the picture and is not included on the actual projects.
