Thoughtful Friday 136


"Don't ask yourself what the world needs; 
ask yourself what makes you come alive. 
And then go and do that.
 Because what the world needs
 is people who have come alive."

Howard Thurman

Index card a day

I signed up to do an art index card a day over at Daisy Yellow which I think is a great idea.  And indeed I have been doing my index card each day but I just haven't been posting them so here is a few to start with:


I used all sorts of things on these: top one - sequin waste and spray inks; one on left - covered in Tim Holtz tissue tape then gessoed over and stamped on; one on right a mixture of script tape and fabric tape with washi tape, paint and pastels and a stamped word.  It sure is fun!

speak with words sweet and strong
which emerge from their hearts
like the fragrance of orchids"
