I finally spent a little time at my craft table again. It was nice to be stamping, coloring and ink blending.
I made a mask out of scrap paper and blended ink clouds within the oval. The hummingbird colors were from a Google image search – the wings of the hummingbird I chose were so translucent they appeared to be pale purple gray.
My final product is OK – it is not balanced, but I don’t have anything in my stash to add to the left. (I would love to have a smaller hummingbird facing right to add there!) I should have added more blooms to the left – poor planning on my part. I added the turquoise organdy ribbon to help – and I think it does balance it a little more.
Life has been…interesting? That’s not right, but it’s the best I can come up with. Not busy – I have plenty of time and no focus. Stressful – some (parental health issues).
We did get away to the beach for a week. (Our vacation has been renting a single family home, spending time on a not crowded beach, and having carryout for dinner for years now – no big change.) I appreciated the time away, we had beautiful sunsets and entertaining seagulls. Biggest question: why the heck was Dairy Queen “closed for the season” in early August???
