Dragonfly & Cat

Geesh......has it really been two entire weeks since I posted? Cripes! The past couple of weeks have been busy, some deadlines for swaps have been creeping up so I've had to get it into gear and start making art, baby! I am currently fighting with a couple of ideas that have been brewing for the Wizard of Oz chunky book for my Yahoo group. The door to the Emerald City is almost finished and I am trying to use the chunky tin snips to cut out the tin man out of roof flashing. Anyway.........finished my D page for the ABC Chunky book for Treasure Art Trends. I backed it with a paint chip "Summer Dragonfly" from the Home Depot, sewed a burned edge transparency over some singed tulle and hand-dyed teal fabric. Dave got me some washers that I painted with alcohol inks (the glue is still wet on this one). Oh, I also got my labels on a huge 120 page recycled technique swap over at Arttechiniques due the end of this month. I actually did two sets of 120 pages (one book will be for April) and finished both ready to send in soon.

We've had a visitor on and off lately:

It took several weeks for him to come to us, but he loves to be petted. He's obviously an outdoor cat, he has scars, scabs, and scratches all over his head, but he's fed and hasn't been neutered so he's around quite a bit. No, April, I'm not adopting him!

You HAVE adopted him. Once he starts coming in your house and you take pics of his wibbins, he's yours for LIFE.
