Ta-Da! Done. This was SO much fun. I used sheet music in the background which prompted the idea for the birds on the branch… And after all what lil sprout with a slingshot isn’t tempted to at least court the idea of birds. Thank God for moving targets… little hands don’t stand much of a chance.
One of the first things I did for this painting/collage was to create the slingshot. I raided a few branches from the front yard maple tree. After some trimming and cutting I used some twine and a teeny patch of leather with a pearl “rock” to top it off. Where do little peeps keep their slingshots? Yep… in their back pocket. I cut up a pair of denim shorts that I’ve shrunk out of and sewed up a pocket adding trim and rivets for detail. I’ve got a birds feather and some leaves and a ribbon rose along with bling for “punch” to fill out my pocket.
The froggy has a base of kraft paper atop a thin chipboard. I used various paints and sprays for the background and added the same trim as on the pocket… adding some Martha Stewart ribbon. Topping it off with some rhinestones and pearls. Done and done!
Today I’m working on my Time Flies a bit of Steampunk with copper and blue. Ohh la la.
Have an awesome Hump day and keep creating!
