The Three Muses invites us to use the written word in a piece this week. I made a collaged pendant, adding some text cut from a novel. I still need to solder over the edges and add the jump ring when I find my soldering iron. The pendant is double sided so I can wear charming or how delightful, whichever I am in the mood for.
I braved the 94 degree heat to do a quickie sketch of my new geranium that is getting ready to bloom. It was a gift from my mom this weekend. Geraniums are one of my “happy flowers” and I can’t resist them. The tiny little buds look so cute, just waiting their turn to burst open into bloom. Those 3 little dots in the top corner are the 3 colors of paint that I used.
The Three Muses have asked for something blue this week so I made a page in my journal. I found an interesting prompt and tutorial at Green Isle Crafts on tearing a random shape from a folded book page and seeing what you could make with it. Mine looked like a dog to me, among other things, so I made him a window to look out of. Maybe he’s watching a bird fly by. This journal is bigger than my scanner, so it’s a bit cropped but the important bits are there. This was a fun prompt and I’ll be trying it again.
The Creative Tuesday theme this week is Trees. I’m not good at trees but I gave it a shot. At The Broken Egg, where we occasionally eat, there are some outdoor tables and near those there is a tree with a face on it. While thinking of ideas for trees I thought of that funny tree and it inspired this little conversation between a raccoon and a wise old tree. At least I didn’t have to draw leaves, LOL.
This week’s Take a Word theme is Zetti. I love Zetti! I decorated an envelope Zetti style.
