It's another gray, cold, and misty afternoon here in Atlanta. There is plenty of housework, laundry, and cooking that I could be doing. But why? Especially when my 9 year old daughter, Bea, and I have the house to ourselves all afternoon. We've been down in the basement studio (with every light on and girlie music playing) going crazy with paper, paint, and Mod Podge. We were inspired by Ann Ellis' "Word Birds" in the January/February issue of Cloth Paper Scissors. Ann glues fun and inspirational words and phrases onto her birds, then puts them on sticks to place in pencil cans, plants, or wherever inspiration is needed.
Bea and I decided we liked our birds wordless and we haven't decided whether or not to put them on sticks. They would be a lot of fun on a canvas too.
We have successfully dreamed and played away hours of a dull afternoon.
We'll be happily peeling Mod Podge off our hands until supper.
