The "Novelty" Still Hasn't Worn Off...

I guess my cats better watch out! Cuz I just might cover them with words too...
this starfish just wasn't fast enough to get out of my path!




I just cut up the strips and and gathered the complimentary bits & bobs...




I couldn't decide if I liked it or not...




so, I didn't want to commit to anything...




but now it's growing on me, so I think I'll make a few more.

  2. I like it, I really really like it!! Especially since it is the star attraction among the other two plain ones! How did you get the paper to look so aged, or was it?

  22. Adorable! I kept trying to read the legs of that starfish. I was wondering if you covered him with Hemingway's, The Old Man and the Sea...or perhaps Moby Dick...or maybe The Little Mermaid. Ok, I'll stop. ;-)

  23. Oh yes I like it!

    Hi girlfriend, displayed your cute little starfish and gave you a shout out tonight.

  24. Thats such a cute idea. I think if you added a little "tea stain" on it then it might look a little richer in color. Just a suggestion...

  25. The starfish turned out beautiful, I like each one is different in their own little way.

    Thanks for your sweet comments on my post! :)
