Happy Holiday Weekend!
Happy Easter Weekend!
And you know what that means....Spring!!!
Which Oliver Howard enjoys
and it's the beginning of the
Spring Shedding Season!
Let the games begin! GRIN
So with a long Holiday Weekend,
and around here, it's a lovely, quiet,
weekend to relax, I decided to dip my
toe into an assemblage project that's
been kicking around in my head for some time.
It's been a long time of taking a break from
doing any 3D mixed media arts, and it
felt so good to have a dabble.
My ode to Spring and to Nature
and even channeling a
bit of my love for
I photographed the inside of this assemblage first,
as you'll see in the next photo's, once I put on
the protective acrylic sheet cover, it became
a pain to photograph!
(Anyone who has any photography tricks for
photographing things like framed pictures with glass
tricks, please share their tricks with me! )
I started with a great masonite kit from
Basic Shadowbox Shrine Kit
With an assortment of 'finds',
pussy willow branches, woodpecker feather,
rare egg from a plastic bird....tee hee....
I used a Melissa Frances
that I used
And used a Fabulous Graphic
of a Woodpecker
from our own Local
Finchley Paper Arts.
Many fussy hours later.....
With some Tim Holtz Wheels,
And many details later....
using Fabulous left over Scrapbooking Papers,
And more vintage finds, of a Bakelite 1920's door knob,
and some old florist bits a bobs, later....
Walla! My Ode to Spring and Nature
This makes me want to
make another one....grin
Luckily, I have a couple more kits!
So you never know what I might
come up with next!
I've also been busy with
my Digital Arts play this month too ...
Using Wonderful Graphics from
And using my own Private Collection
of photo's of our local herd of Deer.
Another Ode to Spring
with my Dear 'Oh Deer Bubbie'
Our Darling Bubbie, our outdoor pet for
many years, tends to crop up in my works
over the years, and Miles Beyond the Moons
graphics just suited this Spring's Muse perfectly.
And of course, had to have a dabble with the
Fabulous Ms. Marsha's Latest Kits
and again channeling Spring...
So that is what I've pretty much been up too in
the being creative corner of life this month...
oh yes, and I finally found a spot for last
months wonderful project, ( check out last
months blog post).
She fit in beautifully in the art room, along with
all of my other precious Favourite Artists Works!
Well there you go....grin
Hope you're having a Fabulous Holiday Easter Weekend!
Keep busy, and hope you get some Art Time!!!
