...but i think i kind of like it!
(almost everything here is either current or vintage ephemera & 95% of it was sitting on my desk waiting to be put away...the chinese text & picture were from a michaels' collage pack; the postage & trading stamps plus sheet music & silver foil paper are vintage; the fabric & buttons are from a gym shirt i recently "retired" to the rag bag; the fruit stickers were on the apple i ate immediately after finishing my collage...the brand in question is a "pink lady" which i found quite hilarious in the circumstances!; rubber stamps: stampin' up; flowers: prima & michaels; gems: mambi; ribbon & feather: michaels; adhesives: uhu gluestick, gluedots, staples)
yes indeedy, i have said it before (LOTS of times!) and i will no doubt say it again (LOTS of times!!!) and yet here i am saying it now (just the once!):
art play is *NOT* a luxury!!!
at least, it isn't for me. sometimes it's an absolute necessity for me to sit at my desk & spend 45 minutes furiously & randomly stamping and glueing & stapling bits of paper & fabric & buttons & flowers to each other with no goal or destination in mind.
note to self: get yourself back to daily art journalling.
second, more emphatic note to self: stop *saying* that and actually DO IT!!!
third, and completely unrelated note to self: it wouldn't kill you to dust more often, either! :)
