First, thank you Kristen and Eva for hosting another
Paint Party Friday. The best blog hop ever!
Go HERE for more info.
Second, Happy Daddy Day this weekend to all of you
GREAT dads, and also all of you who are filling
the shoes of an absent Dad!
Third, an art story I am sure you can identify with.
At least I hope so because I do not want to feel alone.
I was not very creative this week.
Actually barely creative is how my week went.
And it went by soooo fast, the week that is.
Looking back I have no idea what I did.
To the story:
I got an itch to get out my messy making stash
and create some mixed media.
Got canvases prepped, covered my art area AND
a couple of TV trays AND part of the kitchen table
in all kinds of stash of mixed media ideas.
Papers, lace, stencils, acrylic paints, gel mediums and energy.
I was good to go, I thought.
Then I stared at it all...and lost all inspiration.
Nothing...no ideas...no desire...UGH!
So I looked at this mess strung out all over
for the entire week UNTIL
I got a paper bag from the local grocery store.
Here if you do not bring your own bags to the store with you,
you can purchase a brown paper bag for 5 cents.
It turned out to be a GREAT purchase.
This brown paper bag gave me all the inspiration I needed to create.
Who would of thought that all the artsy stash in the house
had given no inspiration, but a grocery bag would do the trick!
It reminded me of how toddlers would rather play with the box
a toy comes in over the toy itself.
Here are the pics of what I did so far.
After blogging I plan on finishing it today.
The background on the bottom pic is the finished background so far.
I need to add a little washed out color to the pieces still and collage
them on top of the background.
This is where I need your help!
Which design do you like better.
The top or bottom layout?
Share your uninspired time or an inspirational time.
I would love to read it!
Enjoy PPF, Daddys Day,
and Every Day!
