To finish out the play date i ruffled through the baggies of ephemera and images i grabbed when i came over to Z's house. I had a book of children's poems, a postcard book with sweet illustrations of birds and small animals, and the things i always seem to have on hand: sheet music, ledger paper, postcards, script, birds and butterflies. I just tore the edges of a bunch of stuff, added some brown ink to soften the edges. (thanks Z for the ink!) Then arranged a composition and glued it all to a piece of watercolour paper. Thanks Z for that too - since i hadn't brought any substrates! This took me about 10 minutes TOPS to put together. And it came out lovely. I think the key is to stick to the same tonal qualities and it just works. I suppose children, bunnies, birds and butterflies all go together too!
Around that time chips and margaritas came out,and well, crafting day was over. What a fun way to end the week!
