One bird, one box, a bit of sheet music lead to this......
I was playing around with those Martha fringe scissors while trying to figure out "Where in the World was Matt Lauer?" And thought maybe I could make kind of a "nest." ....
And well, what the heck was I going to put "said nest" on?
I glued sheet music around a small unfinished box.....added a crepe paper medallion and a bit of "frou frou"
Oh yeah,,,,,,,and the Bird? She came from a Vintage Cake Topper I found for a Qtr!
After the house warmed up a bit, I got busy making some paper stockings out of Cavalleni Papers. I LOVE their images! These little stockings are JUST big enough to hold a Gift Card..........
Some Traditional Colorways...........
Others with Birds and bits of Aqua...........I have a pretty good supply of Vintage
stickers from the 40's and 50's -they were fun to add to these!
Practically, I should probably work on a few more "paper" projects tomorrow, since it looks like Santa's little helper's blew confetti and paper bits all over my Studio..........but I've got a holiday hairshow coming up soon,,,,,,,so to pull out the ribbons/lace and the likes or NO? (Well the livingroom isn't looking TOO bad after I moved things down to the Studio this morning...... I COULD leave the paper mess down THERE,,,,,,and start a Whole new MESS upstairs!)
Oh My Stars! I just thought of a New "Serenity Prayer!"
Artist's Serenity Prayer
God Grant me the Serenity to accept the messes I cannot Change,
To Change the messes I cannot Accept
And the Creative Wisdom to know the difference!
Hope your week is starting out well, whatever you're doing!
Love, Hugs and a Creative Bus on the Cheek!
