Shopping Our Stash where the theme is Love or Valentine's Day. The second challenge is a Twisted Tuesday Challenge. The challenge is to use the sky and the twist is to use something that flies in the sky. When I read about these challenges I knew I had to combine them and include geese on my project. This past weekend I had seen flock after flock of geese flying in "V" formation. I love to see them in flight and used them as inspiration for my card.
For the card, I began by creating the tiny handmade geese. I drew one tiny Canada goose and used colored pencils to add detail. I cut it out and then used it as a template for the remaining geese. It took a while to cut and color all of them but it was all very relaxing. Next I used a piece of white cardstock, blue ink and a sponge to create the sky background. I glued the geese onto the sky background in HEART formation and added the sentiment. I had briefly thought about putting the geese in a "V" formation, as I had seen them over the weekend, and using the "V" for the word Valentine but instead I ended up with the heart formation. I think I like it better this way. Hmmmm, if only I could inspire those real geese to fly in a heart formation....now that would really be something!
