Since i hadn't been doing much art since returning from Alaska (the time change plus the 18-hour days of sunlight were brutal on my body clock!) - i've finally gotten back to making somethings. i think i am back on east coast time now! so, i made another altered doll with 2 bed springs, wove in some pearls, made a skirt from sheet music and flowers, added a dragonfly paperclip and then some metal wings in the back.
then i made 2 charms (the twins) for Artnsoul. one for me and one for my friend, Jan. Jan is making us necklaces and that will be the center piece. then the rest of the necklace we will use to add all our charms from the charm swap! it will be so pretty! the face for the "twins" charms, is a picture of Jan's mother. it is such a sweet picture, i couldn't resist using it!
lastly i was goofing around and decided to make something from the wine cork i found. i had fun just using what i had on hand to create her. i just added the wings which i cut out of a metal altoid tin using tin snips. then i soldered the edges so they weren't sharp. you can fold back the edges too, but takes too long in my opinion. was quicker to solder the edges and viola!
and Pepper is having a much better afternoon. she's gone outside twice on her own and then is going over to the water dish. she still can't jump back up into her "chair" ( a nice leather recliner where her blankie lays on top of). she sort of adopted this chair as her own and finds comfort there. anyway, i still have to help her get into her chair. day by day!
I appreciate all your nice thoughts and comments towards Pepper. It is apparent that bloggers are dogs/animal lovers! thanks for all the good wishes and kisses for her. she appreciated them all. she is doing so much better tonight.
