Illustration Friday - I spy
As I sat here working tonight I realized that I needed to take a break and do something different. I went through some of last weeks photos and found a couple that I hadn't posted yet. They reminded me of what it is to 'just play'. That's what inspired me to finally do this little painting/collage.
Ever since I started working with linen I've wanted to do this with the border. I've had it in my head for a long time and it's finally done. I don't know why it is so relieving to me to get ideas out of my head and make them something tangible. I don't think this will go any further but at least I tried it.
Edit - I've submitted this as my IF for this week. I just asked little C what she spies in the tree and the first thing she said was "no leaves"...lol. I asked her a second time and she said "a bird". :)
Speaking of playing here are the photos I mentioned. If this doesn't date me I don't know what will! Raise your hand if you ever played with Fashion Plates. Me, me! After living in several cities and in two continents I have no idea how this toy has survived all this time. I have the full pink and blue sets no less. The outfits scream 70s all the way. Pretty funny - not that Little C cares at all. We love to pull this out every now and then and we have our girly artsy fun! :)
