I actually squeaked out a little artwork!!


YAAAY!! I'm so glad I made myself sit down
and create something!!

I kinda worked on two pieces at the same time but
this sweet girl is the one who finished first....
A prairie girl ~

She's created on an old cabinet door panel!
Layered with antique ledger paper, ticking fabric,
even a cover from an old ledger book ~

I used an old tobacco tin covered with sheet music
to hold a few botanicals...







She's listed in my Etsy shop too...

And Noah had a GREAT first day of school!!
He's been going to school with so many of these kids
since he was in kindergarten so it was fun
for him to see all his buds again!

Now....let's see what else I can get accomplished!!



Wishing you a wonderful Tuesday my sweet friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

Prairie Girl is beautiful in her vintage simplicity. I love how you upcycle simple things like the door panel.
P.S. Ellie has the cutest face. She is tilting her little head at me as I type this.

It seems to me that this photo is very unique indeed. Is it vintage or a mock-up? Anyhow I love what you've made! I know what you mean about making yourself sit down and make something. All of us creative souls might be a little bit the same. Plenty of ideas swooshing around in the brain and procrastination sets in....
I have a new motto thanks for Mother Teresa, I find it helpful for procrastination.
Yesterday is gone
Tomorrow has not come
We have only today
Let us begin

You had a very creative day, this is really lovely. You always make me smile Dear Dawn. It is going to be 104 today, so I'm not sure what I will be doing. Probably upstairs going through more boxes. Almost done. Big Hugs, Mary

Prairie Girl is mesmerizingly magnifico! That photo is priceless. Very inspiring.

Vee said...

She is amazing, isn't she? What a gal in her overalls that would try to prevent us from knowing that she's even female. How bright she shines in spite of it all. Another great piece!

So glad that Noah had a great day!

This is a so bautiful a collaged pieces, with your lovely prairie girl
my sweet Dawn.Wonderful to use both ledger paper and the cover, from one- it looks amazing simple in the most gorgeous way. I love the box with prairie grass and other dried things, she is still in her real element.
