I found the coolest things today in Glory2727's etsy shop! This artist paints on items you can use everyday, and the prices are reasonable enough that anyone can afford to include a bit or original art in their life.
These Flowers on Soap are useable bars of soap. The art has been sealed, so as you lather the soap gets used from the bottom of the bar.
This Designer Ruler has been sealed with two coats of varnish, so you can use it without fear of wearing down the artwork.
These Pretty Posey Bookmarks have been laminated to protect the beautiful floral painting.
Glory2727 also sells gorgeous original paintings, prints, ACEOs, and notecards.
