I let mine sit a year. But, yes I would assume when they rattle they are ready.

Patience. I just stared at it and kept cutting and pasting until it looked right.
I didn't think I'd do another in this technique but a friend was so impressed he asked me to do 2 of a musical theme for an art show in August. I am in the process of painting he papers for a picture of a guitarist. I am nervous.

Yeah, the Very Hungry Caterpillar guy. I painted 3 different sheets of asst. greens and 3 sheets of red/yellow/orange combos. I probably would never commission these b/c it was all consuming...I have had a few people tell me I should. I'll share my secrets though...so you got the painted paper...Eric Carle gives a demo on his web site. I put a picture in photo shop (well, a friend did) We printed it out in a few different styles (black and white, posterized, etc.) I traced the simplest one and then blew it up on a copy machine to the size I wanted it. Then I cut out the pieces like a puzzle and used them as templates to the tissue paper. Chili was kinda jumbled up at first but I hung it on the wall and pasted and pasted and pasted until it looked right. I had all the photo shop sheets tacked all around it for help. Plus I know the pup well, I really feel like I captured his personality. Thanks for all ya'lls compliments

It's henna "inspired" I actually wood burned the images in the gourd using a henna art book I have for patterns. I got the idea last Christmas looking at salad servers called "bear claws" they lookes like hands and henna goes on hands and feet. This year I did the gourd.
This is the link to that post..

What a great idea...I'd be afraid my dogs would eat it. Great job!

I bought this from VanDykes also. I am beading her/him. I put fake human eyes in it. The antlers are real though. I have a few hunters in the family and deer parts abound. It'll probably take the rest of my life to finish.

The bottom is actually stained aqua...I stained a popsicle stick purse in the same color on a previous post. The stain soaked in to the cedar and muted it out alot. The pics do look greyish. I had both those stains left over from furniture projects. Any who, I was going for waves..... I like the blustery look of it.  I like the way the stain soaked in to the sky and made the clouds.

I am giving some friends a mailbox I decorated as a wedding present. They got married in Costa Rica so I went with a beachy look. They had seen a toy box I made with the same kind of Eric Carle inspired collage and really liked it. I hope they like the box. I didn't photo the front b/c I have left it cedar so far and I will wood burn the address...I still may  stain it but not ready to decide yet.
