Here is my birch tree art, never hurting a birch tree I find dead birch bark and soak it in warm salt water and peel it. Some of the coolest colors of pink and purple show up.





All have a meaning and a story!

The third one down is my favorite! I'm going to have to see where I can scrounge up some birch bark now! I've used different kinds of bark for projects, including the shelf/step looking kind of fungus that grows on the side of trees in the shade (generally pretty hard feeling, (the names escapes me right now tho), and it's a pretty interesting feature to add... especially on small bird houses

Have you tried your soaking process on other types of bark? I love the idea of hidden colors being brought out by doing that.

You put bits and pieces together very well. Hope you share more with us!

I thank you kindly. I find dead birch trees, peel long thick pieces of the bark off cutting it with a knife. I soak in warm salt water, not too much salt. Lawyers of beautiful bark peels away and I am always amazed how not one piece looks the same.

I tried apple tree bark but no luck. Your work must be amazing.

Not yet. He still needs to stay put for at least 2 more weeks. Although, I'm starting to wonder if he will

All my girls were a little early, but safely so. I have been having some labor signs for a few days- but it could be nothing and do this for weeks!

And, while I know I am partial- my husband and I have a great combination of DNA (he's prettier than me, I must just carry good genes!) and our girls are all stunners, so I'd be shocked if he doesn't come out one too!

Neat technique. I like the sunbursts best.

Really cool stuff. And the fact they all have their story makes them even more unique.

I dabble in the oils, but not often enough. This makes me want to dabble more!

Would love to hear the motivation behind each, but I'm happy with just the pics. Thank you again!
