Working with torn paper again/still. I'm doing a demo at Stampadoodle on October 8th, and have several projects I want to show. This one in particular is torn paper birds using scrap bits of paper. Most of these birds will end up on canvases to be sold over the holidays at the Holiday shows I'm participating in this year.
What you see so far is torn bits of maps and text pages glued onto light cardstock that I scavenged from the recycle bin. Once the papers were dry, I traced the bird shapes on the back - using my own templates - and cut them out. You can also see the mess surrounding the mat where I'm working.
It's easiest for me to do all this gluing and cutting while watching a movie we checked out from the library. We don't watch regular TV, but have watched a couple of series from A&E and PBS. But I guess I'm one of those who have trouble just sitting and doing nothing but watching the television. Waste of time, of which I have little! Must be doing SOMEthing. Ha! So gluing and cutting it is.
Another unrelated project on the side of the photo are a group of houses for an accordion book project being done by the local ATC group. More on that later...
Thought I'd share a photo from our recent quick trip to Idaho to see my parents. This view at the top of Whitebird Hill is always wonderful. We usually stop and get out to stretch our legs before beginning the descent... well, if the weather is nice. Which it was. :)
So what's on your workdesk today? Check out what others are doing at Julia's:
