Purple Today

Single silver candlestick thrift store find

Upholstery fabric dumpster find

Empty cheese box recycle bin find

E600 glue hardware store find

Reminder of my craft expertise...

(It's not permanent, but it gives me a giggle when I see it)

A Purple Victorianesque Pincushion

I also have to show off my inspiration art journaling from yesterday.

I affixed crumpled tissue paper onto the paper w/matte medium, dried it and then sprayed with some inks I had.  After the ink was dry I used a fine point permanent marker to follow the tissue wrinkles and fashion some trees. 

Technique is from Shelly M. Broughton who was featured in the Spring 2011 Somerset Apprentice.

The Chinese Proverb at the  bottom

"Think of your own faults the first part of the night when you are awake, and the faults of others the latter part of the night when you are asleep."

I just love art journaling.  Just doing, just creating and not worrying about it being a work of art.
