Okay, now for today’s cute project. I’m just about fin­ished with this lit­tle bird can­vas I’ve been work­ing on for anoth­er sweet friend I roomed with while in Mykonos. We still keep in touch and I’ll see her at CHA. Can’t wait! This can­vas is a mini as it only mea­sures 2.5″ x 3″. I paint­ed the edges of the can­vas black then once dry ran­dom­ly paint­ed scal­lops on top of the black and accent­ed the cen­ter of each scal­lop with a black pol­ka dot. I attached vin­tage ledger paper to the front of the can­vas then using a char­coal pen­cil drew lines and cir­cles around the inside edge and smudged them with my fin­ger. I cre­at­ed the lit­tle feet using 24 gauge wire and attached them to the base of the bird using Fab­ri-Tac. Now, all I need is one lit­tle word to fill in the blank space on the front. Do you have any sug­ges­tions… I’m stumped!

And here are the felt­ed pieces mom (dove) and dad (star) made while vis­it­ing at Christ­mas. I think mom might give this anoth­er try but dad, nope he’s done! It’s back to wood carv­ing for him. Oh and you all are going to LOVE my mom… she is mak­ing yoy­o’s for me to use as embell­ish­ments in future class­es. Is mom awe­some or what? She brought a BUNCH she made on their vis­it and I can­not wait to work them into some class projects. Noth­ing like a hand­made yoyo… swoon.

Okay, that’s it for today… short and sweet… got­ta get back to work. Have a won­der­ful week­end. I hope it’s filled with lots of cre­ative fun, mine sure will be… I do believe Maya Road sneak peeks begin the mid­dle of next week, can­not wait to share my projects!
