Being the bargain shopper that I am, I did buy these wonderful metal stars for about 40% off each. They are on sale this week ~ they measure about five inches from side to side. They look adorable in the rust finish that they have but I want to play a little and give them a makeover!
When looking through the closet in my art room, I came across a couple of small drawings that I had made for my grandmother and grandfather one Christmas. I must have been around 12 years old or so, I just loved to draw. You can so tell that I was a young teenager in the early seventies as these little characters look very similar to some that were out back then. They've both passed on now but I'm so glad that I have these to remember my sweet grandparents ~
And lastly, I finished my new tutorial for the Nest Assemblage!! I've listed it for sale at my Lessons from The Nest blog too ~ This is a wonderful start to get you to creating these fun projects. I share the products that I like using and show step-by-step photographs on how I go about making one. This will be just the beginning of making assemblages for you. You will want to make many more! The themes are endless and you can build them inside all types of objects. I love to have mine "say" something or have a message ~ just as a visual reminder....
I have a few tutorials that I've provided for free here on my blog ~ they're way back in the archives but I'll get together their links and list them in my sidebar for you.
Do you ever have so many ideas swimming in your mind that you can't even decide what to do first?? I am just about to bust with ideas right now!! I want to make a tiny fairy shoe, crafted from paperclay and adorn it with something...I'm not sure yet what..wouldn't they be lovely as Christmas ornaments???..I'd like to make several little snowman heads from paperclay to hang on the Christmas tree, paperclay over styrofoam balls....I'd love to start making a sock monkey for my soon-to-be-here granddaughter.....and what about trying an altered book! Plus, I have these great canvas totes that I found somewhere...I want to adorn them with images that I've printed out on fabric ~ ugh! You get the idea....I'm absolutely nuts!
Thank you always for stopping by to see me ~ I love your kind comments, your uplifting words and most of all your sweet friendship!
Wishing you great Thursday ~
