Julie, here's the first one . . .



. . . but it's not in the mail yet!

This altered rolodex card was made for a swap with a friend--
she made the sheet music covered background, and sent it to me.
We're trying to keep these flat, as we each intend to eventually
fill a rolodex with altered cards.

The sweet bird's nest and egg are from the Vintage Illustrated
Birds set
, which is a perfect set for some springtime inspiration.
Yep, it's the same bird's nest and egg I used HERE.

My favorite part of this one is the French behind the bird, it's as if
he's singing "oui! oui! oui!"

Do you have any spring projects in the works??

A great swap idea- and I love your French Speaking bird singing out Yes yes yes to the Springtime- and everything that comes with Spring!

Cath Wilson said...

I'm sure I've seen this before, Trisha - or did I dream it, lol? Or something very similar. I'm beginning to question my sanity - even more than usual... ooh er! It's gorgeous, anyway xxx

Beautiful! Love the Rolodex size and how you'll be able to flip through them all.

Cathy L. Calamas said...

what a great idea. I didn't know you could still get rolodex's or are they vintage ones? I would love to do this. Yours is beautiful!

trisha too said...

My friend says you can still get plastic holders at office supply stores, I would assume the cards, as well. We're kind of making our own cards, though--I got a rolodex punch from a garage sale, so . . .

What a great idea a rolodex filled with art, I have been working on my rolodex for weeks now filling it with scrap paper to then put address etc onto but I like this idea better.

love your finished card too.
