 I was pushing scraps of paper around, and almost threw this one out. I used it to try out a new blue acrylic paint, and before I knew it, I was dabbing Distress ink on it and stamping with the rubber stamp that I was about to put back in its place (one of the several boxes that hold my rubber stamps).
   Now what? I tore the paper in two. Then I went to the kitchen to put the kettle on. When I got back, my eye fell on a piece of cardboard that I'd painted and put aside. Out came the glue. And this is the result.
   Now isn't that the perfect excuse to hold on to your scraps!

  2. A beautiful piece. I love it when things come together almost by accident in my case they are often my best works ( ha ha! )

  3. It is the perfect excuse! This is wonderful. Your birds often remind me of Edgar Allen Poe...so poetic.
