charms, sisters and fish




I had kind of a lazy weekend. I watched most of season four of the Sopranos on dvd and when I got Soprano'ed out, I made a few things.


I made more fabric charms, I think the grand total is like 65 now. These little buggers are time consuming...I wont post a photo, but they are more of the green ones. I ended up signing up for two swaps and then the quilting arts submission. That is why I have made so many. What the heck I am going to do with them I don't yet know!


I also worked on an altered book for Saundra in my "Color me Silly" altered book group. Her theme is sisters so I painted a spread with watercolors, acrylics and details in a roller ball pen. I have already shown it to Saundra and she wanted to know if it was my sister and I....nope.....I saw a picture in a book and tried to make it look like the girls in the picture...It really doesn't, but I like how it turned out anyway. I actually did a layout that isn't purple or pink too! I am not much of a blue person but I have been trying to think outside of my own color box a little more.....


Then I made three "something beginning with F'" postcards for a swap.....F is for fish in this case....I tired to make them really secure because all three of these are going out of the USA...One to Lithuania.....I like to just send them as is and not put them in envelopes. That way they get the postmark, which I think is cool........

Melinda - love your altered book! I've started one but I'm kindof at a standstill with it. I guess I'm intimidated! Your flowers are gorgeous! Love your blog - you keep me motivated! Marva
