What makes an idea jump into my head and stay there long enough to be acted upon?
Sometimes it's a photo - as it was in this case. An old and faded photo of my boys playing with a VERY large toy out at Wellington on Tom's wheat and cattle property.
Why do I choose the elements I do to make my art piece? For this second section of my four part recycled book it was to use something old - alcohol inks and foil tape, washi, ancient alphabets and lovely little metal sprockets.
The new is Viva Decor Glitter Paste and glittery it certainly is, oh and that gorgeous Tim Holtz embossing folder has been sitting, patiently waiting, to be unwrapped.
Is it for any challenges? I enjoy being stetched by challenges when I have the time.
This is for Sunday Stamper where I am zooming in, just in time. Love that the challenge is Man of the World (the two in the photo are so my world) This is also for the Metalology Challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show - sprockets and washers and Vintaj too!
What motivates me?
There is always an itch to create and that is in an ecclectic range of pursuits.- except cooking :)
However since I have become a fully fledged member of the Blogosphere my enthusiasm, inspiration and
I was humbled when Buttons aka Jenny from Pushing the Right Buttons and she always does, sent this my way.
