I spent most of the evening last night painting backgrounds. Lots to paint, painting, painting painting……. I have a lot on right now & some time lines are creeping up on me. I ‘holed’ up in my studio (a delicious place to be if there was a world war! Actually, there isn’t anything to eat or drink, just thing to do & lovely things to play with so perhaps it isn’t the best place! LOL!) I was painting, painting, emailing, painting, dancing, painting, painting, spilling paint, dancing, emailing, more painting……… I had all different shaped painted pieces standing up like soldiers all around my studio…….there were covers for my Gypsy Journal, arches (big & small); an 8 x 10 canvas for a calendar page for Paper Whimsy; some 4 x 4’s & these. These pieces were supposed to be collaborative ‘gifts’ that a number of artists & myself were putting together as a thank you to some one……. waiting for paint to dry on one side of something……. I stamped a bit on one of these & liked how it looked…..then I waxed a bit & thought ooooo a little Paper Whimsey girl would look nice on here….then I painted, & glued, & embossed & loved them into existence…….I looked up & realized, OH NO, I was only supposed to make backgrounds………..and it was 2.30 in the morning!!!!!!! I had been kidnapped & mezmarized by my muse & time did not exist.
