Inspiration and ideas...............

Where do they come from? Most times I have no clue.


BUT...this time I KNOW!


Tagret had an ad in the newspaper this weekend. It was for a quilt/comforter & the design caught my eye. I saved it with the intent of showing it here.


HOWEVER...in my haste to keep the place neat & tidy...I wondered why a Target ad was on the counter. SO...In the trash it went. When I started to write this post, I realized why I had saved it...OOPS!!...too late!


I guess you'll have to trust me...this 4 x 8 page from Maya Road's Landscape binder was inspired by that ad.



The papers are from Graphic 45, Kaisercraft & Creative Imaginations.

What else for today???

I'm still LOVING the metallic crackle paint... it takes a bit longer to dry...so give it time...but the wait is so worth it!

This is painted on tim's large grungeboard wings...




I rubbed Pitch Black Pigment ink into the cracks & left some on for a really grungy/tarnished look. It's just a little peek...since this is a CHA project.

One more thing.........

Friday's shopping yielded...

2 pairs of shoes...2 purses...2 scarves...

Hmmm...maybe this purse will be some ART inspiration.........



Hmmmm...possibly the starting point for a book closure?





Take note...pay attention to the details...........
Inspiration is everywhere!


MAKE ART!

I found the distress stickles, I'm still looking for the dristress crackle paint. What a great idea for the wings. Butterfly's would be cool like this...and few other things are running thought my mind.
