The sewing bug is outta my system. I really am not meant to use a needle and thread. But I made one more stuffed owl. This one is suppose to be a barn owl, can you tell? I know, he needs a tweak here and there.
I also did a few quick paintings but only two that I like. Naturally, one is an owl.
I haven’t been doing too much lately. I’m so lazy! I made an apron for my 4 yo niece to wear when she paints. No sewing except for some buttons. Finally someone else in the family that likes art! I’m so proud. HA!
I have been cleaning my art area and found some felt pieces so I made some stuffed owls. The biggest is about 9 inches maybe and the smallest a little over 2 inches. I don’t sew very well but this was small enough that I didn’t get frustrated.
I did a few journal pages but I filed them under – Sometimes it just isn’t art – I did finally finish an owl painting. Or maybe it’s really a tree painting. It’s on an old canvas that I have painted over several times. Eventually I will probably paint over this one as well.
There are so many fabulous ATC swaps and Mixed Media swaps happening in my Yahoo groups. Maybe one of these days I can join in again. (Unfortunately I’ll be paying medical bills for a while)
Here are a few pictures
This month I recycled a tea box. . Initially it was for seed packets but naturally I didn’t check to see if they would fit and they don’t. So I will find another use for them. Oversize ATC cards or something.
The book was for my niece and her trip with Show Choir to Disneyland last year to perform and the owl pencil holder started life as an oatmeal box. Don’t you just love owls? I do.
Birds, flowers and trees. oh my.
