Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Flagging Mojo

I am still alive I promise, Just been a bit of a drought on the old mojo/creative bit of my life recently. hopefully its just because I have just been caught up in being  real proper grown up daughter, Christmas and doing things like completely emptying the loft of 23 years of c***. Plus being a woman with a woman's brain doesn't help. My lovely husband is working very hard at the moment and I do the whole guilt thing about 'faffing about with paints and inks' whilst he is out at work and when he is home there are always other things to do. Stupid thing is he loves to see me creating something and hates it when I have a dry period and cant understand my guilt feelings, he says he will never understand women, and to be honest I dont blame him! 

Anyway, I decided today that I really wanted to make a card for a lovely crafty friend of mine who's birthday it is this week, and whilst I was in a 'waiting for it to dry' stage I finished off a page for 'the' book that I started  a few weeks ago. I really liked the background so didn't want to cover it up with too much stuff, plus the page is rather textured, which makes it difficult to stamp onto, so I went with the school blackboard. A bit ironic because it was school that quashed any idea that I was artistic because I couldn't draw and that is what this book is all about, interestingly I was talking to my DD's art teacher at her options evening and she said she had heard the same thing from parents so many times - fortunately these days kids are encouraged to create is very many other ways. 

Right... off to see if the glue has dried!
