How was your Mother's Day weekend?!! Fabulous, I hope!! Mine consisted of a little brocante shopping and a "Creative Day". The perfect weekend!!
I snapped a quick picture of some of the treasures I found on Saturday. It's a rather eclectic mix isn't it? An old falling apart dictionary, funky spigot knobs, the letter "Q", a silver cake plate, paper florist boxes, glass chandelier prisms and a plump ironstone pitcher. Eclectic indeed!!
And what pray tell is a "Creative Day"? It's a day when Brittany and I get together in my studio to work on projects, chat, drink coffee and listen to music. Britt works on her scrapbook....all over the floor.....and I work on bears. Goodness knows, I have a few bears to work on!! ha!
Yesterday's project was a wee bit different though. I started working on a mixed media bear inspired by Lisa Kaus's art dollies. This is as far as I was able to get. The actual mohair bits are done....all except for the facial features. Which, I suppose, I'd better attend to before I go much further. It would be a good idea to know whether to paint a dress or a pair of trousers, wouldn't it? ;o) I'll keep you posted on the progress. I'm waiting for the absorbent ground to dry.....waiting and waiting and waiting.....
Warmest bear hugs on this fine Monday! Aleta
