August Art........


It is late in the month and I am feeling the pangs of creativity tugging on my sleeve. I have been in meetings and teaching for over a week now.........and little art is getting done in the old studio! I wish we didn't have to sleep.....I could get so much more done:-D) Anyway, here is a little box I have been working on. I cut the tin heart from an old cookie tin and nailed it onto the top of my box. I have added a little nest with pearls and satin leaves. I have padded the inside top but haven't put the fabric on yet....so I won't show you that part. I think this will hold an acordian book that will be attached to the inside bottom of the box. Not sure yet! Also.....some pages from my twins baby books. Not my best offerings...but my muse is taking a couple days off.......come back....come back.......

WOW, Linda...you have been one busy little lady! I just LOVE all of your new pages, and that box! It's exquisite! I love the romantic feeling to it, especially with the using of pearls for the eggs! Very beautifully done!
