AlphabeThursday - F is for Fishing


F is for ....  Gosh!  A hard letter for me.  I was thinking, what kinds of materials do I use, that start with the letter F.  I don't use fabrics or fiber a lot, and I've already written about the fabric journal that I made.  But then I came across an index card I made, a few weeks ago.


Now I don't fish but I'll go with DH and sit and read.  That's when I first met him, BTW.  It was at a July 4th party, many years ago.  We were at a pond near some people's home.  I didn't known them, but this guy (DH) was another guest and he was having lots of fun fishing.  He turned my day from dreadful to wonderful.  Something I haven't thought about for quite a while...


In a 21 Secrets workshop, back in April with Rae Missigman, we used recycled materials while making a journal.  And that's where I discovered fruit bags on paper.  


On my index card, I sprayed some ink, then stamped a bunch of small fish.  Next came the orange fruit bag for my net.  I used my handheld Stitch Sew Quick to hold the netting down.  And a bit of paste gel.  The card went onto my letter F index card, with a little light blue color added to the top. 

There you have it!  Another letter index card!

Oooh these are lovely. And yes! I feel so validated for using fruit bags now. I actually called my husband over to say "SEE! I'm not the only one!" haha.

That index card is sooooo cool! Great "F" post.

We ARE on vacation all the time, now that we are in coastal Georgia, EXCEPT when we have company. Only THEY are on vacation! Hahahahaha!!

I like the use of the bag--what a great idea!
And funny how we forget about things and how something as simple as art reminds us.

In response to your comment on my blog asking me what sort of glue I used. I use modgepodge. It holds well.

You create the most fascinating things...

I bet it's a lot of fun finding materials to use and even more fun seeing the finished product!

Fabulous post for the letter "F"...
