Experimenting with Mixed Media
The new year hit the family and me with a bang...sick for three weeks. Then, we were house bound in the snow for almost a week. Through it all, I painted, knitted and sewed to keep my sanity. Unfortunately, the blog was neglected, but I'm here to remedy that now. The down time allowed me to experiment and play a little. During a break in the grayness, spring teased us with a few warm, sunny days. I made this songbird to celebrate my happiness. The materials used were things that were just hanging around the house...cardboard, paper, pencils and good ol' duct tape. It was sealed with a clear finish so it's pretty sturdy and ready to go.
