Picking Up on the Challenge

Another challenge. I love these. They inspire me, they get me to thinking, they get me to making art. Like a muse.

Hey, do you have any idea how many art blogs are out there? Thousands. I have no idea. I can't keep up with them. Guess What? They can all be connected to your muse. Just browsing from blog to blog you will find more beauty, ideas, techniques, printables, art.... than you could possibly do in a lifetime.

Just remember to get away from the computer and get something done. Here's a tag I made for Mary Green's Lillian Russell challenge on her blog, Green Paper. This is an amazing blog full of all the things mentioned above. And the best part... it inspired me.

This tag has Distress Ink rubbed on the base with some Inktense colored pencils blended in. Then the images from the challenge. More Inktense Pencils, computer generated words dabbed with Distress Ink and various trims. Tags are wonderful. They are useful, easy to do in a limited amount of time and so much fun.

Thank you, Mary.
