I’m playing along again this month with
Tim's Arty August inspiration
Tim has challenged us to follow our creative muse…inspired by this month's "12 tags of 2014"
muse /myo͞oz/: to become absorbed in thought or dreamy abstraction
Tim posted about following his creative muse..... and how he chose a variety of different items to fuel his project. So I rummaged around my craft room...and grabbed some of my favourites (had to have some vintage buttons & lace in the mix ;) !) a variety of stamps, inks, stencils and embellies!
Then inspired by Tims creative tag... I've followed most of the background technique... getting inky... and texture with the stencils...experimenting with techniques....I got so caught up in dreamy thought...what stamp should I use...colours of ink...I followed my muse...which I find this the most rewarding part of creating ...getting totally lost...deep in arty thoughts...in a dreamy zone...(It helps to have no distractions)...
and this is the result...
The little birdie (one of Tim's stamps) reminded me of a little magpie that often visits my garden...I'm sure he has his beady lil eye on the treasures in my craft-room LOL!!..anyway...this is what inspired the shabby lacy nest full of goodies... eggs, bottle, watch, flowers and jewels etc...
As Tim says in his post 'our style is as unique as our individual personality' ...So I've come to the conclusion ... 'Shabby' is definitely my 'Happy Place'!
Sadly...I won't be in my Happy Place next week...I'm off too hospital for Surgery...I won't be around to comment on your lovely blogs for a little while...So I will apologise in advance....but as soon as I'm back on my feet again...I'll come and visit you all :)
Thanks for peeking!
