The lovely Georgina gave me a wooden 'dream' alterable a while ago and when she chose this as the theme for the alter it week I knew I just had to use it. Having painted, stamped and generally battered it about a bit I decided to mount it on a bit of garden lawn edging which Janet laughed at me for buying some weeks ago.
The flowers are coke cans, cut with the tattered floral die, run through in a few cuttlebug folders and then painted with paint dabbers before being rubbed down with emery paper. After jumping on these a few times and battering them around a bit (can you tell I've been a little stressed lately?) they were ready to go on the plaque. And there you have it! I'm going to hang this in my garden. I've been doing a bit more gardening lately, having suddenly renewed my love of it.
Thought I'd show you a little corner...
There arn't many flowers in the garden but I love all the shades of green and red especially in this light
And here's another little corner
Complete with Pij who's now flying jubilantly all over the place. He takes off for an hour or so at a time then comes back to the garden for something to eat. If Alan goes out, bird hops straight onto his shoulders. And how's about this for intelligence? If we shut the window on him. he flies round the house till he finds a window or door open! compared with the cat who goes to the door and if it's raining goes to another door to see if it's raining too, I think this demonstrates advanced reasoning!!!!
Well more advanced than mine has been this week anyway!
