Day 15

Time for a progress report on the disintegrating bundles. This is day 15. The effects of time and the  elements are showing in a number of ways. 

The wires (or is it the papers?) are shifting. The rusty trails make an interesting addition to the paper. The papers shown here are scrapbook papers, old book pages and some vintage stationery. One thing I really like is the way the edges of the book boards are aging.

The corners of every surface show greater evidence of weathering ... even on the side facing the tree. The whole mass is starting to look more bulky.

Even with all the storms we have had lately, the washable crayons are not melting into watercolory goodness. On the day I built these bundles, I couldn't find my watercolor crayons, so I made do with school crayons. (Of course, the good crayons appeared the next day. Oh well ... next bundle.)

I'm already dreaming about projects made with these papers. Let's see... 90 - 15 = 75  ... Only 75 more days! That's only 10.5 weeks!

Oh yikes. Ten weeks!

They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
