A little project...

This is the little project I've been working on this week. Last month I went to a stamp show and purchased a few (okay maybe a lot) of stamps. One batch I got was a little more on the whimsical side and I wasn't sure what I'd do with them. So I just pulled it out and started playing with it. Then I had this decorated piece of paper and thought now what am I going to do with it. Hmm, wonder how it would look on corrugated card board? Hmm, needs some color on that, oh and what would it look like with crackle paint. So here you have the finished (in that I said walk away) product. There was also a run in with washers from the hardware store and alcohol ink. I had envisioned one of those pieces with lots of things attached but I couldn't envision anything else. The saying over the girls is:
He who has learning without Imagination has feet but no wings.
I'm quite partial to imaginiation. I think I will sell this on Etsy but I have to pull together some other items to go with it. Don't want it to be lonely.
On another note it was a lovely weekend. I should have spent more time outside but paint was calling me.
This week is my nieces 22nd birthday so we are going to the zoo to celebrate. It's been so long since I've been and I can't wait to take some photographs of the animals. I'll post some of those hopefully by the end of the week.
Oh, and the consensus on the rain photos is everyone liked the second one better which has a little clearer view of the circus in the background.
Hope everyone has a fabulous week!

What a gorgeous piece of art. I love it. What is your etsy store name??? You don't have it on your side bar. I'd love to see it.

I already told you how much I love this. It really is a favorite and I could look at it over and over again.
