Hello. Welcome. I hope Spring and the sun have found you. There are signs of Spring here. A few leaves breaking on the trees. Colour in the Magnolia buds. Bird wars in the bushes. Today it is cold and windy and wet, so despite the signs I'm snuggled up inside with a desk full of partly finished projects.
Lots of good inspiration over at PaperArtsy again this week and I decided to do a quick make, that of course took longer than expected, inspired by Helen's tag. The crafting has been a bit stop and start. Despite the bad weather people have been dropping in all afternoon, although some came with Thai food and cake so no complaints ;-) Nam Nam. I have made a pink ATC! Not my usual colours but I am having urges to use red and pink at the moment. Maybe it's because these colours are so lacking in the landscape and I am wishing for warmer times.
See. Pink. I stamped the snail on paper with a pink pattern and paper pieced the arrows on it's shell. Despite the moustache snails are a bit of both so it's an it, or maybe a hem?? His, hers, hems? May coin that. I backed it with book paper, Norwegian text, and some script paper. Then I layered on torn pink handmade paper and a hot pink ATC. I stamped with Crafty Individuals splat stamp and DI Walnut Stain here and there and everywhere. I used fancy scissors to cut the ends, made some holes and filled them with various fibers. The watch and the sofa are metal charms from Korthobby. Moving home maybe......
