I finally decided to create something for Illustration Friday this week. The topic this week is "Duet" and I had an idea for it right away. We have a pair of cardinals that have been serenading us for the past week from their comfy nest somewhere in one of our backyard trees. So I painted the scene, added a few flower brads and a printed transparency frame to highlight the couple and complete. There is a little spot in my hallway that could use a touch of spring so I need to find a frame for it.
The kids have been getting into the creative play lately too. Both of them have brought home some cute projects from school this week. Little boo-girl made a mask for Fat Tuesday and was able to bring it home yesterday. She added some extra glitter and bling from my stash to make it "sparkly-er and bling-y-er" according to her. Boy-o also brought home a cute project made with pasta. It is the life cycle of a butterfly from egg, to caterpillar, to chrysalis, to butterfly. Very creative idea.
