This has been wearing on me since July 3rd when I made a little pouch for a small art journal and accessories for my niece's birthday. The one she got was the second one I'd made that night. The first one was rendered useless when I accidently fused it closed and it now serves as the beginning of this little project.
It will hang on my wall and serve as my new mantra.
In case anyone is confused about what it is..... it is art. I'm sure it is art because of this little diagram a friend posted on Facebook. Well, of course I couldn't find the post, so with my apologies to the original, here's my version......
( originally posted about a month ago, decided to include labels and it posted with today's date because I went to my dashboard to edit this post. I have only now discovered that the little pencil next to my name at the bottom of the post will edit my posts.... it's what I get for not reading directions :-) serendipitous
I've never posted anything throwback on Thursdays.... not even on Facebook, but I was thinking I'd like to post on this blog on a regular basis and not just once every few months. So I thunk and I thunk.... knowing nothing, not having any creative, new ideas... I could do a Throwback Thursday of art/craft I've done in the past. What to post for this first in a series?? I looked around my mess studio (really I was taking a shower and going through the files of stuff in my head) and decided upon this piece.
I was still living at home so this is perhaps 40 years old or more. I wrapped string around a Pringles can and probably used poster paint for the sunflower. Can you see the face in the center of the flower?
I've kept this silly thing for all this time and have used it to house incense sticks most recently (when the boys were still home)
Don't even know what's in it now......leftover incense I wouldn't let the boys use. ha
I don't even use incense anymore.... takes up too much of the air I breathe. :-)
