Show and Tell

What have you been working on?  Have you used any snagged items or things you have to pif in your creations?  Here's my latest project:

I know why the caged bird sings...
In this 6x6 piece I used several items that I pif:  the squares that I pif are 1 inch,
 but I cut these in quarters to fit the page. The bird cages, flowers made
from vintage music sheets and old postage are all things I put up as pifs. I got the ledger
as a prize in a game from Martha!

I made these 6x6 bird pages for a recent swap. I got the card fronts from a thrift shop and cut them apart to spread them across the page, and added a couple of rubber stamped images.  The bird wing is a protractor that I put in my Tidbits & Tingaling packs that I sometimes pif. I saw it through the drawer front and knew I had to use it!  I built the blue bird around it.  Again, there is the sheet music of which I still own a 20inch stack.

New Year, New Ideas

I think there's a Valentine's weekend-long game in the making!  Stay tuned to get details from Julie K in Taiwan.  Don't forget she's on a different time zone, so check early and check late in the day to see if she's posted her plans!!!
