Good morning everyone! It is a glorious day here in beautiful British Columbia; the sun is shining,
the daffodils and tulips are blooming,
the birds are singing and I have lots of dirt under my fingernails from digging in the garden. I have the perennial garden and the garden by our front door cleaned up and dug so I brought out a couple of my garden 'decorations'.
Terrye French design I do believe?
Last post I shared with you a picture of some items I had gathered together for my Cloth Doll Artistry mixed media studio "Altered Bottle" challenge.
All in all, I'm very pleased with it and plan to put it into a planter near the front door. I kind of failed to take into consideration that I'd have to manually turn the votive off and on each evening when I conceived of the idea so it will be much easier to keep it close to the house so I can turn it on and off!
We've now been challenged to create a glass garden sculpture utilizing bits and bobs of glass and porcelain plates, bowls, vases, etc. I'm going through the cupboards and drawers now looking for my 'components' and am thinking of a bird bath. I have some lovely old willow pattern plates that are chipped and cracked that would make a good top piece and have to find my 'supports'. And then a paper swap was proposed a couple of days ago as well, we are to create a 'Z-fold' card for our swap partners that they can then send to their friends or family. I had to go look up what a 'Z-fold' card was, thank goodness for the internet! Looks like fun, I've made simple folded cards before but never one like this, finally a chance to use the million and one stamps that I've collected over the years!
So what have you been up to lately? Have you been 'mixing it up' as well? Whatever it is, happy creating everyone and get outside and enjoy those gardens! I've lots yet to do around the yard so best sign off for now and get back to digging. We'll talk again soon,
