May Day Party With Crafty Friend

Scheduled post today because we are out partying and I also don’t want Crafty Friend to see this canvas until I have given it to her.  Monday was a milestone birthday but today is the celebrating time.

Happy May Day everyone, hope that wherever you are the weather is better than here.   Wet and miserable is the only way it can be described but wahooooo who cares as we will all be in a marquee in the garden.  Well I use the term garden very loosely as it could be placed anywhere on the acres of land at the family farm.

When we craft together at her place I am in seventh heaven because as you look out of her craft room window you can see the most fantastic views.  Everywhere you look is dotted with animals.  She even has peacocks roaming around the yard and – wait for it – the first baby Peacock she ever bought she named it Shirley.  (I kid you not!!!)

No mundane card would have been enough for Crafty Friend’s momentous day so I have made a canvas instead, fingers crossed that she likes it!!!

At the moment I am not really into all the nuts, bolts, nails and other paraphernalia that can go onto a canvas but the mind isn’t completely closed against it so you never know.

    Shirl, you have done it again! I thought your last project was my favorite, but I am being fickle! This canvas is! Gorgeous, warm metallic colors, remarkable metal textures and dimension, and lovely symbolism including the strength and talent of woman-kind. Your friend will not only be touched by your soulful masterpiece, but she will treasure it as a keepsake. Wonderful! Hugs, de
