Spring Laundry…..

2014 February 9

Growing up, clothes were dried on a clothes line, especially in the spring, summer and fall.  And right about now I’m guessing everyone is longing for spring, right?

I finally finished my “Laundry Line” in my altered book.  Inspired by Junelle Jacobson from her Wild Art online class.  I started this about a year ago, how sad is it that it took me this long to finish it.

Lots of layers, gesso and Faber-Castell gelatos for background, papers, paint, punchinella, stamps….. just lots of textured goodness.

So this is how it ended up.  The word stickers are old Cosmo Cricket I believe.  It’s missing something isn’t it?

Yup, definitely missing something.  Not trusting my handwriting, I used letters from Idea-ology’s Alpha Parts Signmaker for the title.  Because of all the texture, I used additional craft glue to make sure the letters would stay put.  The red double circles were created with a  bottle cap dipped in paint.

Totally happy that I finished it.  I also finished that dreaded office.  Two days but it is done!!!!  Yay!  That’s it for me, gotta run or I’ll be late for work.  Until next time…..

    Oh!! I so remember hanging laundry out on the line!! When we were really little, we used to love to run through the sheets, like they were a hide-a-way, blowing in the breeze! (thinking back, I'm sure my mother just cringed at all the dirty kids running through her clean sheets!! haha!!)

    Oh, yes, wonderful memories!  I still take my winter coats to my Mom to wash each spring and LINE DRY!  This is a great piece, especially with the "memories" added up top. Clothes are great, as is the blue background. This has a whimsical feel to it.  Where are the pictures of the finished office?  Wishing you a good week.  Thinking Spring — 38 days and counting!

    At least you finished it!  I have so many half finished projects!  Hopefully your pages will inspire me to finish them!  LOVE the clothesline scene with the colorful garments and the big letters with the sentiment!  Just FAB, Micki!
