Day 13 September Screw It & Do It Challenge

Day 13 of the Screw It & Do It 10 minute art challenge.

yes, it's a tree!
Saw something that reminded me of a tree trunk when going through my scraps so decided to make a tree. Went through my magazine stash and cut out any greenery I could find to make the leaves. Turned out to be an odd looking tree, so added a fountain to keep it company. Should've added a face!

Took me a few tries to get her head right, but am pleased with how she turned out.
Inspired by a picture I saw online, but now can't find in order to credit the artist.
Glad I didn't have time to add facial features as originally planned!

Postcards 9-10-2017

Oregon slug
My friend Mercedes sent me this cute postcard of a slug.
Slugs are anything BUT cute in real life, but for some
reason, are cute on a postcard. Go figure!

I need all the support I can get!
My pen pal Barbara sent me two postcards along with 
this fun notecard. Love it!

This is either a cabbage or a cactus. Not sure because the description
is in Japanese. How cool is that???

Maybe a cabbage? Some kind of succulent?
Love it!
