Then I visited my dad and we celebrated his 92 birthday at the beginning of August. My dad is amazing. He's in perfect health other than one knee. The cartilage has just worn out and for the first time in his whole life he had to hire someone to cut his grass. He felt really bad that he had to do that but his knee just won't let him walk behind the lawn more any longer.
I also went on a short art vacation. I'll post more about that later.
I received this card for my birthday from Donna G. It really intrigued me. I love how she used so many different pieces of paper to make it and how they go in all the different directions. It inspired me to give that technique a try.
|It says: Don't Just Do Something, Sit There.|
This bird is my first attempt. I have since made the wording darker because I realized you can't read it. It's in my recycled cook book art journal.
I am going to the Tennessee Stampers retreat in September and decided that I will make a Shoe box project using this technique.
The bird and the pumpkins are made with scrapbook back ground paper. I finally used some of my scraps that I have been saving.
The butterfly is Washi Tape. Some of the shapes are dies and some were hand cut. It's very easy to do. I used sticky back paper to make mine but you could use a tape runner or a glue stick and do the same thing.
