Okay, so I'd like to say I call myself an artist, but the truth is I haven't sketched or painted anything in years. After blogging for awhile I started to discover blogs devoted to art and all things artistic, and it gave me hope. Maybe I'm not too old be creating frilly and silly things that make my heart race with satisfaction.
I am so happy to have finally finished another challenge by Helga at Art Chix. This challenge is to make an ATC or other small collage that somehow includes birds. Sunday afternoon was lazy with a drizzle of rain...no better time to make a mess cutting, gluing, and dreaming of artsy things. Here is my finished product.
The best thing about this little piece is I have an actual place for it...an old mirror with a little frame that has a hideous rose painted on it. I have wanted to put something cool in there forever (well, my husband might not think it is cool, but it's not like a monster truck would look any better!) so now this little collage has a home.
Sometimes it feels good to get back to the things that we once spent hours wasting time with before the world required us to be grown ups. For me, art does the trick.
