heart the art: week 27 (perhaps)

finally, after an almost entirely paperless week, i have made something--HOORAY! it's for HEART the ART prompt #27, and it's been in my head for two weeks, just waiting to get out!


(vintage: timecard, sewing pattern, book paper; patterned paper: scenic route; birdcage brush (printed on inkjet transparency): scrap-n-fonts; glimmer screen stencil & glimmer mist: tattered angels; rub-ons: heidi swapp & fancy pants; chipboard letters: american crafts; ink: ranger; other: sewing machine, manual typewriter; adhesives: uhu gluestick, 3m foam tape, tombow monorunner)


i like the randomness of this one; i just grabbed things and played with them and stuck them down pretty haphazardly: the base (& journaling block) is a vintage timecard, the birdcage was one i added to a half-full ink jet transparency i was printing out, (they are too expensive not to fill completely!) the leaves are from the last sheet paper i have in that pattern, (i will *miss* scenic route!!!) and of course i needed to use both my typewriter AND my sewing machine after nearly a week without them!

i ♥LOVE♥ going away, but it's niiiiiiice to be home!!! :)

  2. Yeah! You are home and the first thing back you post a HTA!!! Awww I feel loved. :) I love this too. Its so pretty. With no real set in plan prep this is AWESOME!! I bet your sewing machine was quite ticked you left her for so long or relieved...hmmm not sure.. hehe

    I'm glad you are back! yeah! You didn't miss much from me. I was deathly sick with the strep throat nastiness. So at least you don't have many posts to catch up on in my neck of the woods. I've been trying to catch up after my sickness.

    Can't wait to hear about your D.C trip most importantly did you go to the art o' mat??? Hope you got caught up on your laundry and are having a relaxing Sunday crafting. Talk to you soon!
