Yes, I have no ducks, I have no ducks today! Not one duck stamp image, nope! But to the rescue came my old dictionary. My title comes from the fact that right after mallard comes malleable and I didn't realize I was including that definition.
This 'thing' grew on its own. Started out pretty simple, stapled the picture and definition on some burlap, added to my burlap chevron background, found enough letters for 'ducky', cut out the word 'just' from the dictionary and then decided to spray some corrugated cardboard and add some for texture. The latest MMJ (messy, mixed and joyful), posted by Nancy, asks for the corrugated. Isn't this just ducky?!
I hope everyone feeding ducks in the wild are feeding them healthy stuff like seeds, fruits, but not bread or popcorn or the like. Bravo to Brock, Jeanette, for caring about those ducks. Fun activity for him.

Oh my gosh I love this. Your posts are equally fun to read. All that texture and all those elements are wonderful- so much to see. This one makes me want to reach out and feel it. I sure do love your work, Jean.

Jean this is definitely very ducky and delightful and fav’d. I was creating my corrugated panel whilst FaceTiming with Nancy earlier today and finished mine but I can’t post until Wednesday as I’m double dipping lol. Love what you came up with. TFS. Happy day
