The other day, friends (whom I've known since elementary school) and I were kidding about not knowing what we want to be when we grow up. Then I realized that I did know and that I was doing it: Playing at being an artist. And, not just with words. Whooo-hooo!
A couple weeks ago I finished my first painting. It's on the concrete step outside the patio window. Some of you may remember the bottles I painted earlier this month. I let a few of them dry on that concrete step, which left paint stains. I decided that painting over the stains was the best way to get rid of them. And, so I did.
I made one!
It was easy-peasy. If you want to give it a try, do a search for "book planter" in your browser. One of these days, I'll share my method once I've got it down. I have another book ready to be planted and four more prepped to carve.
My first book planter became a housewarming gift. The yellow glassy thing (in the middle photo above) is a tiny crystal turtle. I also stuck a green glass marble in among the rocks. I look forward to making more book planters. Whooo-hooo!
Monday came too quickly. I suppose that's what happens when I'm having fun. I invite you to come along with me to the memes hosted by the lovely Jesh and Angie. Good cheer, One and All!
