So maybe Picasso would turn in his grave seeing my "proposed art"...but hey it works for me. I am one that has a hard time drawing a stick figure.. so real art isn't gonna happen in my household. But with a little imagination and some supplies the sky is the limit . I gathered up what I had around the house and went to work. The one think I love about scrapbooking is it can be used for sooo many things...other than layouts. I used my old stamps that I got at the garage sale to stamp the C. I thought the font was cute. This is in my craft room so my initial works well here. I found that black frame as is on Tuesday at St. Vinnies for .50 and framed some scrapbook paper, buttons, and a little French enamel piece that says Family. The bird art is just a chipboard oval frame covered with paper, a diecut bird silhouette, seam binding, and more buttons. The oval frames were painted out and one I put a pearl initial in (from Michaels dollar section) hung it with ribbon and a vintage belt loop and the other is a rub on and more buttons. I have a few more projects like this to do but the ones you see took less than a few hours of playing around last night around midnight. I am a night owl. Boy am I gonna miss my late night frolics when school starts. Sigh...... I will be gone for the next couple of days on vacation. Going to the beach so I won't be around. I am excited to do a little shopping and sight seeing. Will miss you guys and hope you like my lo0se interpretation of art. What do you have lying around the house that could be art? Rofl, cherry I wanted to add a thank-you to Angela over at http://thehappyhomebody.blogspot.com/ for giving me this award
