treasure

The other day I went for a walk during my lunch break at work. I found this little piece of tree wood that looked like there was  bird hole in it. I thought it was cool, so I made this collage out of it. I used canvas with newsprint under white wax, I cut a hole in the canvas then filled it with some yarn that remined me of nest, I stamped a nest with eggs on a piece of cardstock then sandwiched the image between glass, and soldered them together.So now  when you look through the hole you see a nest with eggs. How cool it that!? 
That's why I love collage, you can make art out of anything.

Spent the weekend in Santa Cruz with my hubby. It's a beach community, a couple of hours south of San Franciso. I've mentioned before that it is one of my favorite places. It's very laid back. Lots of history, Victorian homes and such. Surfing meca.
We went to a concert to see "Country Joe", (he played at woodstock back in the 60's) Anyway his concert was just him doing a tribute to Woody Guthrie, a folk singer from Oklahoma during the depression. The concert was about Woodys life and his songs.  It was pretty cool. I was raised in Oklahoma, so hearing about someone famous from there brought back memories.

Have a good week "ya all"
