Happy Earth Day!
Miss Lily has been enjoying the sunshine this week, following it around the house, and seeking out all the sunniest spots.
Today’s Art . . .
Today’s art is this page that I made today for Earth Day using a bunch of quilting cotton fabric scraps with a recycling theme. I actually gifted a piece of this fabric to Elizabeth last year during the napkin swap, I thought she’d like it because of the recycling motif. I hope she found a use for it. Happy bEARTHday to you also Elizabeth, hope you had a great day.
This is an entry for AJJ where the theme is recycling – see link at bottom of post. I pulled out some fabric scraps from the box to see what I could put on my page.
I was having some problems getting all the bits I wanted to fit on the page but then I found a page in my journal that had an extra fold out piece which made a much wider page and used that one.
When I was happy with the layout, I stuck it all down using matte medium.
Because this is all scrap pieces, some of the words on some of the pieces were incomplete, so I used some paint pens to write them back on and then add more flowers and leaves. If you compare the photo above with the photo below, you will be able to spot where I added in the missing letters in the words (a bit like one of those spot the different games).
Some Close-Ups . . .
