A Sort of Artsy Weekend

Not the best photo of it, but finally finished my first assemblage type piece this weekend. This one took me a while to do, from the time I salvaged the old weathered board until when I decided just what I was going to do with it. There's rusty things, and feathers, and mosaic tiles and polymer clay in this piece and generally I'm pleased with way it came together in the end.

The August long weekend has been fabulous weather wise, and I'm really glad I've had some down time and some play time to enjoy it. Would like some more play time, but with company in the house it's hard to manage that.

I've seen two bears, a doe with two fawns, and the cutest little not too shy bunny rabbit over the course of the weekend so you could say I've been enjoying some time communing with nature as well.

Tomorrow it's back to work and back to the routine. These are the summer days when you wish you had a time machine, just to stretch things out for a little while. * o

Really beautiful Eveline! One splurge I allowed myself, while playing nursemaid the last couple of weeks, was to purchase a few great (but expensive!) Somerset craft magazines, and one called Cloth, Paper, Scissors. Have you ever seen the one called "Artful Blogger"? You need to submit your work, girlfriend!

gee thanks Becky :) I've seen Artful Blogger on the stands but haven't checked it out. I love Cloth, Paper, Scissors - lots of great inspiration!
