What do you do when you’re in the mood to create something, but you’re not exactly in the mood to go deep? Sometimes when this urge appears I try to fill the void by making little things using this n’ that.
For instance, a couple of days ago I made these altered bamboo tile necklace charms using clear stamps by 7 gypsies (Conservatory set). This stamp set is available at Stampington. It comes with 24 pieces (includes images of bees, butterflies, birds, birdcages, eggs and more) so you’ll have plenty to choose from. Anyway, I started off using a bee image.
And then I moved on to using a birdcage image.
If you like birdcages, here’s a mini canvas (3″ x 3″) that I created using a slightly different birdcage image (also included in the 24 piece stamp set). This canvas was previously published in the Jan/Feb 2012 issue of Somerset Studio in the “With One Stamp” section, and the specific how-to instructions are available inside.
I can’t seem to get enough of using clothespins in my artwork.
And I’m naturally inclined to want to tuck a feather into the mix as well. Luckily, feathers are so readily available…I find them very often during my strolls along the beach. And sometimes I spot feathers right under foot during my routine runnings around – this always stops me in my tracks, amusing me…with a mild amazement. I love it when this happens. What about you…what amusing little things have crossed your path? And do you see feathers everywhere you go also?
