Bird is the Word

I haven't posted much this week.  I had so much fun last weekend that it took me a few days to rest up.  I visited my artsy friend, Ann, at her Art House.  The Art House is nestled in a cozy neighborhood in Nashville. Every room in the house except the bathroom has art goodies in it. It's a dream house. Rooms full of paper, ink, paint, ephemera, stencils, die cutting machines, stamps, gelli plates AND Scooter, my dog, was welcome.  It is the perfect dream house for an artist and her 12 pound dog.

Our friend, Lori, stopped by on Saturday evening and we had the best time.  This page is in my Things That Fly Altered Book.  The background is made of gelli prints and a stencil cut from a Tim Holtz die and a few background papers from Ann's stash.  I used a Claudine Hellmuth stamp for the birds.  As I worked on this page I kept hearing that old song, Bird's The Word, in my head.  I guess I was singing the refrain because Lori finally said, you have to put those words on your page.  So I did!

I started this page last weekend and finished it this evening.  It's the first of my Art Everyday for a Month posts.  November is Art Everyday Month.  I hope you'll play along with us.  Read more about by clicking the link in the line above
