|It does still creep me out some to tear up a kid's book.|
I was able to finish one class called "The Art of Wild Abandonment". It is lead by the marvelous Junelle Jacobsen and can be taken through ScarletLime. Since I have friends and family who keep having babies or grandbabies, it seems like a lot of my stuff is going for gifts. I'm good with that.
The pics below represent a couple of gifts. They are actually noteboards. They were done on 6" x 12" deep edge canvases. The fabric is stiffened burlap, and the blue fabric is from some blue jeans that I had hemmed. The backgrounds are book pages with lots of paint. I used embroidery floss for the 'sewing' and did that by hand. The pieces were attached to the canvas by using Golden's Super Heavy Gel Medium. Enjoy.

|It's the easiest thing in the world to go out and grab some sticks!|
|Sorry for the black rectangle, but|
I wanted to block out the recipient's name.
I just used some letter stickers!
