I completed my Sumabird for the Cloth Doll Artistry challenge and it seems rather fitting that I am unveiling her on the first day of Summer. Sumabird is The Bringer of Summer, she has the Summer sun on her belly ...
and the moon and the stars on her back.
Her wings bring the soft Summer breezes ...
and her tears bring the gentle Summer rain.
Her feet are adorned with flowers that grow wherever she lands.
I love her. She is sitting above me as I type this post and her 'mojo' seems to be working as the torrential rains have just stopped and the sun is shining, thank you Sumabird!
So it's now time to consider the upcoming challenges in my favourite groups. The Mixed Media Studio upcoming challenges are really intriguing me; we are going to have a Goth doll challenge, an altered mouse trap swap and a pin head doll swap as well. I've never made anything Goth so am really looking forward to giving it a try (I'm thinking Hallowe'en!) and I have a huge old rat trap in my stash so the mouse trap swap will actually become a rat trap swap ;O) And the pin head doll is stumping me at the moment, I'll have to wait and see what that entails? I'm sure it will be fun, it's mixed media, how could it not?! As for the CDA challenges, the details have not been revealed as yet for the next quarter so I will have to wait and see if anything 'tickles my fancy' there.
Thanks for stopping by today, hope that your Summer is off to a wonderful start and that the lazy, hazy days to come bring you much joy.
