French Hen

Roc (see link @ right) + I are in a monthly 4x4 chunky page trade that will last for 1 year. We alternate selecting a theme for the month. This month's theme is bird. This is my bird for Roc. It's made of paper layering, a collage image from altered-diva (see link @ right), a cutout crown and wing (vintage french text), rubber stamping, postage stamp from France, water soluable crayon, India ink, beaded fringe, and tiny adhesive dots on the tips of the crown that I'm afraid are going to fall off in transit.

Build A Nest Together

Yesterday I completed the 2nd of three birdhouses I am altering. Here's a front view of #2. You can see all sides of it, as well as all sides of #1, "Pods of Feeling," in my art gallery (see links on right hand side of this page).

The Eagles

Yesterday was the final game for my daughter's basketball season. Their team, the Eagles, won 6 games and lost three. This was my daughter's first basketball season, so we were blessed that she landed in a team with fair and gentle coaches who promoted fair play and team work.

This is the gothic arch I made for this week's challenge (see link on right side of my blog page). This week's theme is "transition." I repeated the #8 because 8 stands for new beginnings. The butterfly is a symbol for transformation. Then I tried to capture the essence of growth, dreams, etc. Not sure if this works; I seem to do better with less images. But hey, I tried!

Skinny Saturday Art Challenge

I try to participate in a weekly art challenge wherein you create a "skinny" page (3"x5") based on the theme of the week. Last Saturday (3/1/08) actually had two themes; however, I elected to just participated in one, hosted by Mandy, an art friend from the UK with whom I do art trades. Mandy's theme choice was "sisters." Here's what I created featuring a reproduced vintage black and white image of two young girls. To finish off the pages, I add eyelets and curled, beaded wire for hanging.
