Wow, where to start.
I spent the last 5 days in Central Oregon at Sunriver. Love that place. We had a great time, got to walk everyday on the many miles of walking/bike trails. The picture at right is from one of my morning walks. We had a little dusting of snow on the last day. I was never in the right place at the right time to get pictures of the Three Sisters snow topped mountains or Mt Bachelor. If I did have a chance they were surrounded in snow clouds. It was really good to get away for a few days courtesy of my oldest daughter, she had a house rented for a week during spring break
I even got to do a little shopping in Bend one afternoon and found this little plaid teddy bear I couldn't resist. He was so different then anything I had, I just had to have him. I know my bears are taking over my studio as my daughter kindly reminded me. But I don't buy near as many as I use to for that very reason. I guess I am just going to have to rethink where I keep them. She is right, I could use the room to organize all my collected stuff for collages. My room is pretty tight these days.
Just before we left I received another postcard from ihanna's swap. This one came from TJ in Minnesota, she even shows the process how she printed these on her website, check it out. I was really surprised when I received TJ's card as I had sent her a postcard also.
Still waiting for the last 2 postcards to arrive, maybe tonite when I get home they will be in the mail box.
And the final part of "this and that". I finally finished the collage I've been working on for several weeks, really, it's done. No more going back and adding more. It's titled "Clues". You'll be able to see why when you look at the close ups.
Lots of layers of paper, it started with a very old James Bond paperback book torn in many pieces.
No paint except around the very edge, I used some of the tissue paper that bleeds to give a little painted effect.
The final detail was the little gold seed beads. No more, that's it, it is done.
I think that about catches me up for this week. I had hoped to post from Sunriver earlier this week but we had trouble with the wifi off and on all the time I was there.
Thanks for visiting. Have a great weekend.
