Happy Monday to you! Had a not so fun weekend as I was in the bed for most of the weekend. Been having some dental trouble at which I was taking antibiotics, which didn't settle well with me at ALL!! The two coupled together put me down for a few days! Hope to have it all cleared up soon!
I can stay in bed for a little bit, but then I just get so frustrated from being there that I simply have to do something regardless of how I feel! After running the gambut of movies in my DVD drawer, reading a release of the first chapter of a book by Deborah Harkness that I am waiting to come out with baited breath and playing Mario Brothers on the Wii with my daughter, I finally decided on Sunday that I felt well enough to go to my closet and do a quick mixed media tag because I needed a "fix!"
It didn't really take long and I really didn't have anything in mind but to use some things I had maybe put to the side and not used in awhile, you know, in the name of "newer & craftier" art supplies!! LOL!! Nothing AT ALL wrong with the art products I used mind you, it's just we become such art supply "hounds" that things get put on the back burner for the latest product!!! I enjoyed it and it was just the "fix" I needed on an otherwise downer weekend!
I played with some gesso through one of my first stencils ever, a plain old circles stencil that had varied sizes of circles. I'd forgotten all about that guy and it was at the bottom of the heep of other "so called, fabulous" stencils! LOL!! Poor little guy felt so lonely and abused!! LOL!! Anywhoooo.....I continued with my fabulous Tim Holtz distress stain ink pads (how did we ever live without those?), some fabulous Unity Stamps and wonderful Dylusions. Nothing real earth shattering, but I really liked how it turned out in spite of myself!! LOL!!
Hey, next time you are feeling kind of yucky and need to get out of a slump, encourage yourself just to get in there and get your hands dirty. You never know what you might come up with? You may be surprised!!
Have a fabulous week!
