...Until today I never really considered myself an artist but Wikipedia defines art as:
"The product or process of deliberately arranging items in a way that influences or affects one or more of the senses, emotions or intellect"
I sat down today and created something for myself...not a demo sample not a class project I just wanted to play about with paint and glitter and paper and i loved every minute of it, even though I am covered in paint and glitter and my desk looks like its been tipped, even the girls joined in and painted a couple of spare canvases that I had. Crafty Wednesday is what we named it and it certainly beat watching the horror unfolding on the news at the moment.
So here is my piece of Art...
It is a 30x40cm Canvas so quite large and I have used Acrylic paints, mod podge, masks, glitter, stamps, patterned paper and even bubble wrap...I stamped with it, fab effect. It really made me think about what I do and that true art should come from the heart, which this did...oh and my paper and paint stash too.
I have the bug now and I want to do another one, will have to hunt down a canvas as I think I gave the girls my last two :-(
I am off to clean the paint out from under my nails, and plan my next piece of Art!!!
