Procrastinating and then catching up!

Like many other busy artsy craftsy people, I have projects that I start but don't quite get finished. This is one of those projects...


I had completed a digital collage of the girls last fall, I had even printed it out on a fabric sheet and started to embroider it. Well last week I finally collaged it! I painted my canvas board a bright blue than collaged it with old book pages, school papers from the girls, and of course lots of tissue paper...



I wanted it to convey a northern Ohio mid-summer feel to it. I think I am going to end up giving this to my mom and dad for their camper, it has a camper kind of feel to it:) What projects are you finishing up?

Cassie, what a lovely project! I can't wait to see the finished product!

I can also relate to your half-finished projects. I've got many that are sitting in boxes, waiting to be picked up again and completed at some point in the future. Last summer I had some extra time and forced myself to finish them, and it felt good to be done...but there are always new things to try and new waves of inspiration hitting me...it's better to follow the inspiration than to finish something half-heartedly, I think!:-)
