I'm still designing for Moonlight Journey and used their Butterfly Pendant sheet to create, not jewelry, but a mini canvas. I painted it and then used a little piece of ephemera, some ribbon and glitter (of course!) The original idea for the mini canvas comes from a piece in Mar-Apr Somerset Studio and a current swap going on in one of my art groups. But this piece is not for the swap. I saw the moon and butterflies and thought it was absolutely perfect for the mini canvas. Hope you like it!
Have managed to be late again...well, my excuse is I had a little hospital dalliance so my knee would bend. In other words, the doctor cranked the heck out of it (while I was blissfully sedated) and now I can make a full rotation on the bike! Yippeeee! If I thought I wouldn't screw up the knee, I do think I'd do the happy dance! Well enough of that! Insects, eh? I immediately thought of our stink bug invasion and shivered...little monsters have no predators here, they aren't cute like the little fellow on Miss Spider's Sunny Patch, they are noisy, clever little beasts that hide in any little crack or crevice. So...if it's not a butterfly, I don't want to talk about it. So guess what I made? Right! A butterfly! I painted and spattered, did some faux encaustic, glued, cut and something else I can't remember right now...but here's my insect!
Interesting challenge! There's so many ways to showcase star(s). I found an image of a little girl who is smiling to beat the band. I imagine any parent would see her as their little star! Thanks for stopping by!
I've had some serious issues with Blogger, but it seems like everything is back on track (fingers crossed). For this challenge I used a wooden tag, a Paper Whimsy lovely girl and a few other bits of ephemera. Thanks for looking!
Born and raised a city girl (Chicago). Now I live 23 miles south of D.C. Have loved art all my life. Primarily self taught. Raised 3 sons solo and they are my pride and joy. I have a 7 yr old granddaughter and a 2 year old grandson. They are the apples of my eye, and I hope they will love art as I do.
