Speaking of birds, I made this little owl for a swap in a Yahoo group that I am part of...I know my friend loves these little owls. Whilst surfing blogs I found this wonderful owl... what a talent Anne Wood is!
As a special treat (and also to allow him to be freestanding) I crocheted him a little nest out of sari ribbon as he does soooooo love colour and texture. I'm not much of a crocheter (note how wonky his nest is), but will make a few more of these for future owls...they can take their home with them for comfort.
A while back I began doing some 10- minute collages (thanks to Robyn at Art Propelled and Shelley Klammer). Wonderful idea these quick collages and they really do get you thinking. Pop over the Shelley's blog to see for yourself and sign up for her free e-course. This was my Saturday collage.
This is my Sunday collage.... I think I was obviously pining for some time on my own, to just chill out and do my own thing.
I did a bit of blog surfing and while visiting Judy Wise's blog read this quote in one of her posts. I love this quote so wanted to put it in my journal so I dont lose track of it. Next year I am doing a few classes with Judy, encaustic art and journalling. After visiting her blog I am so looking forward to the retreat!!!
And finally a self portrait. Reading someone elses blog they were doing self portraits so I thought I would have a go.... not terribly sure about the likeness...I think I look better in the self portrait than in real life. The big green blob in my forehead is not a mistake...thats a crease (I always look like I'm worrying about something so I'm told). Maybe I will try another self portrait later.
I hope you all had a wonderful, creative weekend too.
