Then I decided to repurpose some additional pages from the latest phone book! I also repurposed some plastic bags by placing 8 layers between 2 pieces of paper and ironing until they melted together as seen in the January / Februaty edition of "Cloth Paper, Scissors" magazine. Not sure what that is going to turn out to be.

Today I had planned to blog about what Lisa the host of the OWOH project got me to help with my participation. Shhh...Lisa doesn't know yet. I will take a picture to show you tomorrow. You're going to be soooooooo jealous!

skinny legs and little heads."
I started out by repurposing some wallpaper as background that Sherry Goodloe from "Got Art" repurposed as package wrap when I purchased an item from her Etsy Shop "Got Art". That was cool, but I had a heck of a time trying to get it to stay stuck to the canvas.
I didn't use any molding paste on this piece...I'm already sorry. Is it too late?
I will update you on my paper clay adventure and tell you more about this project tomorrow! Don't forget to join in the One World ~ One Heart fun!

Well...I think that I have finished my first real "Taking Flight" project. I am going to let it marinate for a while and take another look at it later. Maybe I will add some more hair. I am LOVING my new book, "Taking Flight" by Kelly Rae Roberts! Thank you Sherry from Got Art!
I have consulted my brother, Kurt, who does professional framing about the appropriate backing and hanging mechanism...he's going to hook me up! My project is almost ready to go!
I also consulted Kurt about suggested pricing for my original piece of art...what can I say, he loves me. I promise, this piece will not be priced anywhere near his lofty aspirations...he loves me.
You may recall in an earlier post I was concerned because I had somehow torn a small piece of paper from the piece. Now I could have stopped and thrown the project away (who am I kidding multi-media artists don't throw anything away), but instead I decided to "be creative". As a result, that little torn piece of paper became a bird (molding paste) and inspiration for the name of the piece, "the birds were without words". Here's is a closer look...well an attempt at a closer look. I promise to work on my camera skills!
Be Creative Every Day!
