Tuesday

sweet, sweet summertime...

It feels like years since I've blogged... this summer has just been too much fun! I spent the entire months of June and July just hanging out with The Daughter and loving every minute of her. During the school year, there is so much going on that we don't get alot of 'down' time to hang out. This was great!
But, back to reality... school started yesterday and after a marathon house-cleaning jag, I was SO ready to play with paper and scissors and glue. How I've missed the smell of glue! hahaha

While I was having my cup of tea this morning and admiring the sunflowers on the table, I decided to let them be my inspiration...

Out came the supplies and I quickly got to work covering some blank canvases and shipping tags with paper...

Everything came together so quickly. The pretty color of the sunflowers had me scrounging through my collage stash pile looking for anything that might work.
Jackpot!
After some Stickles and a little bit of stamping, I was done.

How do you like my silky fringe? Guess what it is...

 Yep, the selvage from some silk I bought to make flowers with (I'll show you those on another post- MAJOR addiction to making them).
So the moral of the story is 'never throw anything away'. Oh yeah, right, you all already know that and that's why we have such messy craft spaces! duh

Happy Day to you!
