My purse is a mess! It is usually littered with torn scraps of paper with a new “saying” that have the word “KEEP” on the back side of it so I don’t carelessly toss it when I admit I need to clean it out.
I have about 50 or 60 sayings that are keepers! “Don’t Grow Up, It’s a Trap” is one of them. Sunrose Gallery in Seaside, Oregon has sold mixed media pieces with this saying for me through the years.
I was so happy to find this metal bird cage at a sale this weekend! I knew right away it would make a cute assemblage and I pictured a little girl on the swing that I made with plastic beads and necklace chain.
These are my supplies and you will notice the cage bottom is the lime green cardboard from the pumpkin bubbles I got at another sale this weekend. YAY!
My darling clip art girl is on cardstock for sturdiness and a bead hot glued to her bottom that has necklace chain attached the same size bead is hot glued to the top so it was super easy to make the swing. A scrapbooking border was attached to the outside edge and left over scrapbooking flowers hot glued to the border.
I have a good selection of clip art dogs and the basset hound was the perfect shape to hide the brass candle point on the bottom of the cage.
Yep, when you’re a kid no bills to worry about, no mean old boss, and on and on. Why did I want to grow up so fast, LOL????? Someone with a whimsical sense of humor is going to love this assemblage!
This angel tree topper will be a fun mermaid tree topper!
Still have a lot to do but it is really fun to make a mermaid!
