From this photo taken on a walk last week... What does it look like to you? I saw some sort of flying mouse!
Another drawing done March 14 09
from this close up of the "head" of the mouse!
I had this wonderful ATC from Laurel at Studio Lolo in my mail last week, along with the cacti on the brown paper envelope and a beautiful succulent card she also painted gifted to me! Thank you Lolo. All perfect for Cactus Monday! I took the liberty to draw it as good practice for my drawing efforts. And then I turned it into a little art quiltlet sized 5" X 9" approximately; using one green dyed dryer sheet over yellow felt, some fun green plastic material over green cotton fabric for the cactus, and some glittery purple fabric for the pot, some brown fabric for the dirt, and a cotton dotted purple fabric for the curtains. I top sewed it and hand embroidered bumps (French knots) on the cactus plant and dirt. I backed the whole thing with brown paper bag, as that is Lolo's signature paper. And hand sewed it to the piece for a firmer backing. It was great fun. I will send the quiltlet on to Lola, as it was her art that inspired mine! Happy Cactus Monday
