I am posting my first little attempt at a 'twinchie'. A 2 inch little square of art or collage, as discovered in Somerset Studio magazine and since seen around the web and other places. This challenge was to create a twinchie in black and white- very hard because of my obsession with pink and light teal in artsy pieces. I am sad that the white/silvery stamping I did doesn't show up, but oh well.....lesson learned.
After finding a few pictures that I loved last night I decided to sleep on it, only to toss and turn all night thinking about what paper I had and what picture I should use. I finally decided to use a bit of a photo I had taken of David in Florence, Italy. My thought was also to pay tribute to the movie "Office Space" that me and my brother can never get enough of, while also giving a nod to my Facebook Flair (is anyone else so sad our bulletin boards disappeared?) and this is my humble little piece of art.
Then, while out soothing my symptoms of PMS by shopping for both clothing and crafting supplies I found this sparkly butterfly in the JoAnn's Crafts dollar bin that I HAD to have. Just like a tween girl I envisioned it dangling somewhere by my bedside. After bringing it home I dressed it up with a few of my ETC. embellishments that I have forever loved and not dared to use. Now I have a silly reminder of beauty and radiance waiting to greet me every morning. (And perhaps a husband questioning my sanity) Am I the only one who remembers what movie this line comes from, "Why yes, Darling, you look positively radiant!" (points to you if you know).
So here is to whimsical little pieces of paper and glitter that somehow make me feel young again and remind me to be creative. Best of all...it's calorie (and caffeine) free.
