This One's For the Chicks

It's National Chicken Month in September, and I don't know if that means, "yay for fried chicken" or "yay for animals" so I'll celebrate by posting this picture of the sweetest little felted chicks ever. It came from this etsy shop if you're looking for more cuteness.

(Shhh! Don't tell them I like fried chicken too!)

Here's a quick birthday card for my Aunt Katie, who actually belongs to my husband, but since I've known her since I was 16, I get to claim her now too. She loves purple, so I added some lavender printed paper behind the coolest die cut I found. I added the flowers and the silver embellies and ta da! Fini! I'm so international.

Can you guess what the flower is made from? Take a peek at a close-up.

It's paper towel with spray inks. I noticed that the colors looked fabulous on the paper towel I was using during a project, so I added some more spray, let it sit til almost completely dry and then hand cut different-sized flowers. The towel stays flexible enough that you can crinkle and fluff them up to resemble a flower.

It came out soft and floofy. (yep, that's a word I got from the kids) I love when discoveries happen in the midst of creating, don't you?!

Happy Chicken Month!


I love hearing from my crafty friends!
