After all my Christmas goodies had been carefully wrapped and put away for another year, I suddenly became wildly creative! My cats thought I had lost my mind as I was darting about my cottage, assembling paints, card stock, twine, glue and a bird I had created months ago just waiting to find the right spot. I had found two unpainted frames near the dumpster where people leave the strangest things (I prefer to call them Found Objects.) Many a found object has been rescued from oblivion by an artsy lady and stored in her craft room until she finds just the right use for it. I painted and distressed one of the frames and decided to use some cardboard hearts from my ever expanding stash. The hearts were covered on one side with pastel papers and on the other with paint in shades of teal and aqua. The cards were carefully arranged so that
the colors looked good next to each
other on both sides. I then strung
the hearts on twine and attached
each end to the frame, the aqua
sides facing the living room and the
pastels facing the kitchen.
But it needed something more--my bird! Alas, the bird was only covered with papers on one side. Of course, I didn't have any more of the same papers, but I made do with similar colors. My bird was duly glued to the middle of the frame and
I was finished.
There are more projects I want to tell you about, but we'll wait until next week.
This week I'll be linking with Shabbilicious Fridays at
