Ever read a line, hear a phrase, or experience a random thought and think, "I could use that in a piece of artwork!?" If you are like me, those ahhah! moments come often, but quickly disappear if I don't write them down. I guess my brain is too taxed by trying to remember computer passwords and where I parked at the grocery store.
Of course, if I do manage to write down that great phrase,
my next problem is finding the gum wrapper where I wrote it.
So, in an effort to give myself some help, I decided to make a handy booklet just for the purpose of writing down phrases I like. I am calling it "Juicy Bits and Sparklies."
I added writing surfaces by using washi tape and a few old book pages covered in gesso. The tape can be repositioned, so if I change my mind on something, I can just pull it out and add something else.
I'll use washi tape to add other doo-dads and pictures as well. No big plans here, just a fun place to peruse when I need a little inspiration.
