It's been a busy couple of days. I had a meeting here yesterday moring with Lori, who is my partner for teaching the Women's Bible study class starting in September. I went and picked Fran up at her Dr. appt. and drove her home around 1:00. When we got home, I finished up my second prototype business card holder... the first one was a complete flop. This one is better and I will use it but to reproduce them, I will still make some changes for the next one. I love the fabrics of this one! Here are three views... front, back, and opened. The closure is elastic.
Today, I got up early and started painting before the kids got up. I signed up to the a cover for a LFB with the theme "Fruits of the Spirit". I went out to my fig tree and got some leaves and a fig and started working. While the page is only 4x4, it took quite a bit of time because several of the elements are painted separately and then cut out and collaged on to create a dimensional painting. I will make color copies of this and then add the title for the multiple copies I need to make. I have to do the other side of this page too. I sorta' know what I'm doing but have to sit down and work on it. I want to get this project finished this week along with the remaining 2 houses for my skyline swap. I decided to send on the little 'chapel of undying love' because I realized I could duplicate it and make a bigger one! :)
Anyway, here's my fig painting which will go up for sale in my etsy store once I make copies of it!
It's storming outside and I've got the kids to bed. Chuck is going to a friends house for a movie and I'm trying to decide on more art or a book in bed!
