I had to say goodbye to my blog friends...

and tell you all to have a GREAT weekend...

One quick update...
Ted will NOT be in Philadelphia...
OOPS...my mistake!

Can't have a blog post with out a photo...

I leave you with today's booth sample...


This was...
TOTALLY...TOTALLY... TOTALLY ...FUN!

I was supposed to be packing...
but I had this idea...
I couldn't resist the URGE...

I can't say it enough....the way you take Tim's stuff and use it in such a uniquely Wendy way....it's just inspiring! Just goes to show there's more than one way to approach grunge!

benedick4 said...

I love how your mind works. I see a bird cage and think bird. You see a bird cage and think what else can I do with this. Have a great weekend.

Marjie K said...

That's fantastic! I've been thinking about making the cage more 3D but was only thinking of pushing it up with pop dots - not rounding it like this. LOVE IT!

WheatLDee said...

Now I am humming that old tune... "leavin on a jet, don't know when I'll be back again..." Thanks for the trip dowm memory lane Wendy - Safe Travels and what a beautiful Booth Sample!!

michelle said...

Very cool Wendy! I love it. I just received that bird cage I am playing today. Can't wait. But you know you have to check the blogs and e-mails first. Have a great trip.

KAT said...

You must have plucked that one right outta my head! Exactly what I was thinking of doing but minus the face... Love it! It's a beauty!!!

Have a save, fun and inspiring weekend!

libbym said...

Have a great trip! I just adore your new booth sample!.. Isn't it amazing how the smells of rubber and ink brew the most fantasic art pieces in your head?

Lori said...

Have a good weekend! Love how you cut the birdcage so the face is peeking out, CLEVER!

Tona said...

Great project! So how did you attach the birdcage?

Elaine A said...

I'm standing here outside your door, I hate to wake you up to say good-bye. But the dawn is breaking, its early morn - oops, sorry Wendy, I got a little carried away with "Leaving on a Jet Plane" - LOL! Did I just age myself? Have a wonderful time - don't make the taxi wait and blow his horn - sorry :o) All seriousness - have a super time, make art and have FUN!!
And I love the booth sample - just awesome!!!!

Hugs -

Awesome! The creative girl cannot be caged!!

susan said...

WOW! That is a really great project. I love the colors and the dimension of the birdcage. Thanks for sharing.

Alexandra said...

Love it, I'm glad you didn't leave the poor girl locked in, she deserves the chance to expand her wings and fly. Have a safe journey Wendy, and enjoy your weekend.

Donna said...

Totally amazing!!! I LOVE this project!!

Linda M. Walsh said...

Outstanding Art! You are truly an inspiration. How did you do those wings; they are perfection to this piece. Totally, totally awesome!

doreen said...

Rockin Robin Caldwell said...

OMG...I soooo love this. I can't wait to get my hot little hands on that bird cage die (as well as several other Tim dies too). This is an awesome piece, and I "wants" it!! Hope you have some fun!! Hugs, Rockin Robin C

Joyce said...

Ok, when you attach the wire on the bottom with the tape, do you put something over it to cover up the wire? I think that tape is double sided. It's just shaped so nice and I plan to play with this die next weekend. Curious minds want to know the secret. Love the use of the face in the bird cage too. Wonderful!!!

Karen Denson said...

your work is phenomenal. I love the grunge work. I just happened upon your blog today and I will most definitely be back. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.
