With spring almost here I was reminded of a time when my son would
venture out into the yard to Explore all nature had to offer, collecting bugs in his bug house, gathering feathers and twigs, all those things little boys do.That was my inspiration for this Explore card.
Using the images from the newest plates from
Artistic Outpost Huck Finn.
I stamped the main image on a scrap of muslin, added some twine and feathers and
mounted all to a torn book page. Not to worry it wasn't a Huck Finn book!
I hope your spring is full of new adventures!
Beautiful card, TFS
BTW - I received my box and I LOVE IT!! Fantastic job! Thank you again!!
This is the perfect little boy collection. It brings back memories of the treasures that my son would bring home, too. I love this!!
Oh, Lynn,melt one's heart ... how darling a memory & creation.
Have a beautiful weekend ~
FUN GIVEAWAY ENDS 4/10
This is just wonderful, it brings back memories of when my boys did that too. "sigh"...those were the good ol' days.
Enjoy your day.
awe, what wonderful memories ... i love that your memories have inspired this card. beautiful!!!
You created such a great story in this piece of art.
You never cease to amaze me with your creations.
I love this one Lynn. I love the little stories that one can tell with their art. Are you going to give that to your son or participate in a challenge? Have a great day. Diane

I love the idea of a stamp on muslin. Huck Fin is pretty neat too. You did a great job making memories!!
Love that image stamped on muslin! Wonderful texture and elements as always! Beautiful, Lynn!
What a lovely piece of work Lynn.
Here in the UK (South East) we have just had two beautiful days - fingers crossed the weather holds for the weekend.
Oh..this is so wonderful, Lynn! My boys chased butterflies....and then captured water snakes and brought them home. I drew the line when they brought a big rubber boa home, put him in a glass bowl, and he escaped during the night. We NEVER found that snake...and he did NOT die in the house!
A lovely card for a boy!
Totally perfect Lynn, love the natural fibres. Annette x
Very artistic! Love it!

A wonderful piece, it brings back memories ....

Loving this....those layers are just awesome!!!!!
Wishing you a great one...hope you are well!!!
I have to repeat what others are saying...it does bring back memories of when my sons were young. This is such an awesome way to celebrate memories of early spring. Thanks so much Lynn.
I just HAD to tell you how happy this post made me. My "little" boys are 30 and 32, and I have saved nearly every twig and bug they ever presented me. Now I am inspired to create with them.
I have fond memories of my boys handing me a handful of bugs...
Have a great weekend, fantastic card. Hugs, Kim
Beautiful card, Lynn. It's a shame that we don't have more male images to work but you perfected this!
That is really clever, Lynn, and quite poignant. As the mother of a daughter, I remember all of the rodent funerals. How do you think that would look on a card...haha!
Dear Lynn,your creation is really special! Absolutely adorable!!!! Love the muslin stamping! Very pretty!
Love when you stamp on the muslin. It always looks so fantastic. This is wonderful and perfect with the huck finn image!
I have to admit...I LOVE THE BUG! :D
