Dimension of Color

I used a recycled piece of wood from hubby’s scrap pile. I sanded it and painted it with acrylic paint.

I colored the color page out of a book I have. I cut up into shapes.

The fun part was doing the quilling decorations. I am new at the quilling process. I love it. I hope to make many more with the quilling design. 🙂

I added the hanging bead work to the wood.

It is proudly hung on my living room wall. 🙂

This is one of my daughter’s cats, Nocca. Think I spelled that right. 🙂 Daughter is at annual army training so we are watching her two cats.

I thought for sure that balloon was going to pop and send the cat in the air! LOL But it didn’t. Pets are rather entertaining.

On a sad note, one of our cats got out the front door when kids were opening it and we can’t find him. Heartbroken. Hopefully, he will find his way back. He is not an outdoor cat though. There are so many wooded areas around here and traffic. Worries us. We sure miss him.

Having Fun With Paper

I have wanted to do quilling for a very long time now. I bought the beginning supplies at Hobby Lobby and then bought some boards and tools from an online quilling store. Quilling is making shapes with thin pieces of colored paper. It is done by curling the paper with a small tool. 🙂

A few weeks ago I sat in my living room and made my first item. It was fun and relaxing. I can’t wait to do some more projects with lots of different shapes.

I would like to sell a few once I get going with it. 🙂

This is what I did with it. My hubby has lots of wood pieces from projects so I decided to put one to use. 🙂

This is sitting on our fireplace mantel. 🙂

I’ve been enjoying the small art projects this month. It is getting my creative juices flowing.

With the end of May brings June, I will dive back into editing my book for the final pass. 🙂 I wanted a break from it.

And I will also be continuing more fun art stuff!

Have a great last day of May! 🙂

Glue Mess Gets Duck Taped

Duck Tape the desk My own photo! 🙂

Courtesy of my cellphone and a new app I discovered, BeFunky App. Love it!

My hubby built me my very own Creative Cave in the basement. He also gave me his old table he used for building his big model airplanes. He had knocked over a bottle of strong glue onto the table last year. We tried lots of things to get it off but only accomplished most of it.

I pondered for months what I wanted to do to cover it up.

Duck Tape!

Throughout the year I had seen the square sheets in several stores and thought yes! We went to Menards tonight to get some other supplies for remodeling the basement and I caught a glimpse of these. I knew that was what I wanted to do. I bought only three sheets for now to see how it looked and what design I wanted to go with.

I like it! 😉

I will continue the pattern the rest of the way across the table. The sheets were 1.99 each. Cheap design idea plus no mess or smell. I like the bits of wood still in the areas I won’t cover up. I hope the corners will stay down if not I will find more duck tape! LOL 🙂

I like the feel of it too. It covered up a few splinter parts as well. It will be easier to clean than the wood since the wood is not stained or clear coated.

Sometimes one needs to ponder awhile. Me, it seems like it takes months! LOL

Hope you have a great weekend, I think we will! We are going to go to my hometown fair where our other home is at. 🙂

More work to do there. Sad thing is we have not made it back much this year so it is in major need of cleaning and work. 🙂 That is ok, we will get to have fun in the evening at the carnival. Home owned and operated by local volunteers. I hear they added two more rides! 🙂

I can not wait to have a funnel cake and a pork burger!!!!
