Folk Art Style Hex Signs

The Folk Art Swap at ATCs for All sounded so appealing to me, "Folk art brings to my mind, rolling hills with houses nestled by weeping willows and barns with stars, fluffy sheep, fat cats, cows with skinny legs and colorful roosters. If you enjoy this rustic syle of art, join me."  The first thing that came to mind for me was Pennsylvania Dutch hex signs.

These birds are called Distelfinks, they and the geometric rosette at the bottom are symbols of good luck and happiness; two birds means double the luck and happiness.    The other elements of the signs include the hearts and tulips, which represent love and faith.  The outer scalloped border is meant to bring smooth sailing throughout life.
