Glue overdo! I was trying to catch up on all the cut & paste I haven't been doing lately, and the result was a poor little mess of a yarn bowl. The tutorials made them look so cute -- but the thing was a bust! It has since flattened & is now in the trash. (my first official Pinterest fail.)
My other escapades this week, though not glue related, have gone much better:
I was drawn to this red door like a child to candy,
& inside I did a bit of antiquing (just peeking).
The sign said Do Not Enter (I did).
The sign said No Standing (I stood).
Had friends over one day for art & lunch. One drew, two painted, I chopped paper droplets.
It was cool enough one morning to toss up the windows, open the doors, take my drawing and coffee outside and have one holy sugar shock of a lemon bar for breakfast.
It was cool enough the next afternoon to pull a repeat with a bottle of wine. (The front porch is my favorite room in the house.)
Finally finished my neurotic blanket! Happily nestled underneath 2 paintings by Carissa.
Lindsay, that genius from Pen & Paint, offered a brilliant solution for organizing washi tape. Use a tension rod, she said. I did, and now my art table has a lovely new undergarment. (most of these tapes are designs by others -- but within a week -- this should be full of mine! :))
Speaking of the tape ship -- I stalked it until the very end! It's official: she is anchored and moored in Port Newark/Elizabeth, New Jersey. Now it just needs to be fished out of customs and shuttled up our way. Estimated delivery date 8/25!
One last thing: I'm thrilled to be the guest curator this week at Crescendoh! Each day I'll feature links from two artists I love. Yesterday they were Rachel and Teresa; today they are Natalie and Pixie.
Happy Glue it Tuesday -- can't wait to see what you made this week!
