Means a play day! And play I did.
Tee had done a tut on paper cowgirl back in September. This was a faux beeswax technique for collage artwork. Each little canvas just needed a little "extra" and so I followed her directions to use the gel medium and inking techniques. I was very happy with the results.
And I love the sizes of these. So much fun to display in different ways. Here, I've layered a vintage transfer ware bowl with fiber shavings, a butter dish (filled with buttons) and a tiny canvas is propped inside of it. Along with a wee bird.
I really liked the way this one turned out (although the subject matter is hard to see - its a nest in blue flowers with a blue bird flying above it). It really looks old and funky in person. This one is going to a dear friend of mine. I hope she will like its little funkiness!
I've had lots of fun putting them here, there and everywhere this afternoon. But they are all going on Etsy in just a few.
As for that snow day....
Twelve and a half inches. I think it broke a record for the state. I know in all the years that I've lived here, well, my whole life, I've only seen this happen twice before. Beautiful and made some darn good snow balls!
