Wednesday

she loved them...

I had an idea to put a little fairy into a beautiful field of flowers... unfortunately, I cannot paint, but I can cut with scissors! So I grabbed a few printed images of hollyhocks and started to cut and paste.

I screwed up a couple of the flowers with too much stamping/permanent ink once they were pasted on. Rather than throw the whole thing away, I used my fingers to put blobs of red/white swirled acrylic paint here and there, trying to make my own 'flowers'. Surprisingly it worked! Once the penwork was done, there really wasn't much difference between the printed images and my messy finger painting. Who knew playing messy could be this fun?

Right now it's gray and dreary outside my window and I'd kind of like to trade places with this little fairy amongst all the flowers!

You had a vision, and you created it! Whether you "paint" or not, that is awesome!
