A page that was cut out , then ruffled to add to the oval already with ruffles...I finished it all ....to stiffen....with a layer of mod-pauge or could use gel medium.... This above piece is my favorite....now what to do with them!? Below is my new sign that goes on the roof of my shop....YAY!!! My street sign will have more info on it....this one is to just identify which of three buildings on this 3 acres is the store! Yes, my house was all clean and orderly for the up coming Fourth of July crowd coming to my house. It was two days before the first company came and I had a BURNING DESIRE to be creative.....I mean I HAD to create something .....anything!! I didn't want to drag out a bunch of supplies, so I just used what was handy.....a thin marker, my watercolor pencils, mod-pauge, a cut piece of cardboard, a CBS catalog and old paper scripture pages, scissors.....and my hands! I was suddenly immersed ....in heaven! I just began to draw leaves and cut them from the catalog which had different tints of color on the pages and I added the same colors but darker.....then took the pile of leaves, glueing them down as I grabbed them randomly glueing them on the larger cardboard cut, gessoed heart ....then I formed a small paper rose for the small red heart with mod-pauge. ....still don't know what I am going to do with them....keep adding formed or "ruffled paper"...I think, until I know it is finished. But then I played with making some ruffled scripture strips and torn oval from a jelly jar wrapper from Spain....I just kept playing....I love the ruffles best and want to make more. I know this is not finished but I just wanted to share what I got to BE FREE TO DO BECAUSE my house was clean!!! THAT always motivates me!!! Enjoy what was done, and I hope it inspires you in a spontaneous area of creativity!! The sky is the limit!! Big Blessings....and Enjoy! .....oh!.....and there is one of my new signs for the roof of my building!
