Let's Get Started - My first Blog
Okay - my Blog is "Nevertoolatetohavefun" and thanks to a dear friend, Pat at Birds Nest on the Ground. She is also at blogspot.com and if I ever figure all this out I will link you to her. Her blogs are so inspiring - therefore - I have been inspired. This is my first foray into doing anything artistic that doesn't come with a pattern. Sewing, quilting, embroidery, knitting, crocheting - they all have patterns. Painting and doing mixed media has ideas and then you fly. My goal is to allow others to spread their wings and fly - have a good time - even if you never have before. This is a little ATC card that I started last year in a response to my friend Pat's request to trad. This is one of the 3 I made that is left. Pat got hers last month (no one said you have to rush to have fun). The other one my 6 year old granddaughter Gianni wanted. After explaining to her that she had to make me one to get one - I got one from her entitled "The Red Sea"(upper right). That was the story I told teaching her class in Bible School, so she made the Red Sea with hearts for love. My ATC has a lot of purple, green and feathers because it relates to my fascination with Mardi Gra. I can't tell you how I made this one because mine and Pat's friend Kelley and I worked on them a year ago. I do know that I love to collect feathers and I painted them and used them to press onto the page to give it a little interest.
