So I had a Ticket to Ride.... to Paris! The background is a collage of scraps that I made a couple of weeks back and copied it so I could use it more than once (see below). I added a little Eiffel Tower, a red and green ticket, decorative tape, "pearls" dyed with alcohol inks, tiny red foil hearts, a pewter heart and red and green ribbon. Sakura pens were used for accents.
I think probably all of us have a scrap box, it's hard to throw anything away! I plundered through mine and made this collage sheet from odds and ends, including some fibers and a piece of left over dyed baby wipe. It has remnants of tissue paper, card stock, song sheets, and decorative bits and pieces trimmed from other projects And a good spritz of Glimmermist. Artistic recycling!
It's been a yucky two days for various reasons and I had a real spirit lifter while I was working on the tag for today's challenge. I glanced out of my window just in time to see a gorgeous red headed woodpecker flying away from the bird feeder. You just don't see them very often and it's the first one I have seen at the feeders since we set them up a year ago.
As I was gazing at the tree where it had landed, more movement at the feeder area caught my eye and I watched in delight as a pair of bluebirds took turns bathing in the bird bath. The male was very polite in letting the female go first. They splashed about for several minutes then flew up to perch on one of the feeder holders to preen.
God knew just what I needed to see!
