Sure, I had the mechanics all plotted out, and have the papers pulled. Along with a couple of stamps too. But then a light bulb went bright in my little brain, and it isn't a card.
I went literal with this one. And decorated a little canvas which sits upon a little easel. Not too original, but I think it turned out very cute. And I am the one that has to be pleased, so it's a WINNER.
No rhyme or reason to the assembly. I just opened up the left-over container. You know the one, the stash of little things that almost made it onto a project, but didn't, and you just can't bring yourself to throw away, cuz you just might need it someday things. Yeah, that one. Anyway, I started with a forest scene, in my head. And then started with a little watercolor on the canvas. Then a layer of workable fixative, because we all know how my plans take turns and twists. When I spotted the sandpiper (a Tyggereye Art stamp) in the left-over tin, I knew that the scene had changed to the beach. Magic how it happens. Then I found that lovely flower/swirly chipboard piece, and the words, and the little diamond that just screamed to be added. And the little bunch of fall colored flowers, perfect.
And then I looked to my right, and there is my little jar with multi-colored tiny seashells.
Yup, they needed to go into the mix too.
I just love how it fits in with the little birdhouse I made.
They make me smile. And isn't that what this is all about. Making ME happy.
Thanks for sharing this little journey with me.
Have a wonderful day. Come over to OPUS GLUEI and play with us.
