ART is good for you...

I have a box filled with all kinds of trinkets and interesting little objects.
I reach for them from time to time when I create my projects and this time I also found inspiration in my special box.
I didn't do any careful planning. I just had a blank canvas (30x30 cm.) that I covered with a layer of Gesso and some Modeling Paste applied through a stencil.
And then my Muse went away...
I created some other projects in the meantime and decided to come back to my canvas.
I sketched a dreamy profile with a pencil and then went over it with a black pen.
It made me remember how much I love drawing, I promised myself to do it more often.

Are Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays among your favorites, too? I used two shades of blue and I also sprayed some mist that I created mixing blue Mica Powder with water. It gave a nice metallic effect.
And then I reached for my box of treasures...
I chose old paint tubes, old paintbrush and a rusty pen nib. I also took Prima embelishments (metal and resin) and some Mechanicals and painted everything with gesso and sprayed with the same mists I used on my background.

Then it was time for stamping the backround with Finnabair and 3rd Eye stamps.
I glued my embellishments using Magic Glue and Glossy Accents and voila...
...here's me... dreaming about tomorrow...
