"I think it's important not to get in a rut, to constantly challenge yourself, and surprise others. It's the only way to grow artistically."
This is my philosophy and I try to abide by it on a regular basis. I try not to paint hearts, butterflies and flowers into every single art journal page. I even made a list of different things to make just in case I need to help myself get out of a rut....and yes I check off things I have painted, it doesn't mean I still won't include hearts, butterflies or flowers anymore, but will try to include something different each time....in this case, it's a coffee mug....filled with tea ♥
I have a lot of favorites, the eye stamped on the tea tag and the moldable stamp.
I also love finding other ways to use my stamps; like the flourish from the heart stamp being used as steam rising from my mug:
entering my art journal page in:
I laughed like Woody Woodpecker at the out come of the eye on the tea tag...seriously, do I sound like that when I laugh??
I don't finish my sentences very well....like when I said "waterproof......"
It's good thing you can't hear me when I make a mistake, just sayin'
Showed you my favorite mug but totally forgot to tell you WHY it was my favorite...I collect 1950's Red Rooster pottery from Metlox.
I hope you make an art journal with me and give me a shout out over on the Frosted Designs Facebook page...can't wait to see what you make!
