I can't remember the last time I woke in the morning and wasn't immediately consumed with thoughts of all the sensible things that need to be done that day.
I love Mondays. Usually relaxed and refreshed from the weekend, once the children are at school, the possibilities of all the things I can do with a whole Monday at home by myself stretch out before me all shiny and tempting.
...and I usually do the sensible things.
Inspired by the beautiful (and much more detailed than mine) map paper birds I saw in this post (my map paper cranes are there too!). I used a 1990's atlas full of pretty coloured maps, and a pva glue and water mixture to adhere them. Quick and easy, and I'm thinking it could be a work in progress.
There's a great recipe for poster glue here that I'll try next time, but we were out of sugar from making marshmallows to toast over a backyard campfire last night.
note: homemade marshmallows melt *really* quickly...
and the mixed media tree artworks I posted about last week will be in the shop at the end of this week. I got a bit distracted...
