The quote of the day

...just a little creative fun in the studio today

using bits and scraps

the white knotted handle off a gift bag

entwined with a remnant of black satin ribbon

bits of an old nylon luggage strap cut

to fit around a pastel pencil

then fabric glued and pinned in place until it dried

a gessoed board bordered in black

and 2 holes drilled at the top

then the center painted with chalkboard paint

and the quote of the day

added for inspiration becomes

the perfect gift for your Francophile friends !
