I'm a magpie, a glitter whore...a glitter queen...whatever you call it - I love glitter! Which is kind of funny since in my non-art life, I tend to be non-glittery in my dress and style. But in my's all about the glitter. Yesterday I went to Michael's to get a frame for my finished collage that I am making for my friend (which I will post once I give her the collage), and the dollar bin had glitter pots...4 for one I bought 16 pots of glitter. woo hoo!
Today was glitter day. I glued glitter to all kinds of things and added them to my art journal. It's been sooo long since I've played with my art...I felt free and happy creating absolutely nothing but pretty little things for my journal. I've missed the lightness and have made myself a promise to do more playing with my art.
