Don't know exactly where summer went. It's almost time to become Winter Texans again. Never got much time to be here...everyday activities, family and way too much politics this year. DID do something good for myself though...took the Hunter's Ed course locally and passed. Proud as punch! :-)
Passing through, Arkansas and Missouri saw some pretty bad flooding from all the rain last weekend. Farm fields are a mess. Am so sorry for the farmers. Should be back soon. Hope to post some new cards.
"Art in My Garbage" is a favorite theme I deamed up. All that "stuff" in the trash-bin surely has another life as an "art supply" - Yesterday the discovery was date pits ;-D They scrub up well, have a nice rustic, "woody" look and make great beads when drilled with a fine dremel bit. Have also just discovered "sea beans", along with the lovely shells on the Texas beaches. The teeniest bit of baby oil shines them up nice. Avocados, apple seeds, prune pits, etc. can all be used as well. http://www.beachbeans.com/bean_descriptions.html
Hoping to share inspiration with thosewho visit. “Art is in the doing. It isn’t important how it turns out. The process is where the pleasure, the learning and the experience take place. A day without some sort of creative endeavor is a wasted day.” Myrna Wacknov
Call of the Wild was a page created for a Traveling Journal while a member on an altered book site. The book is gone, but at least I have photos of the art created. This is a combination of stamping, collage and freehand.
