Get "Scrappy Happy"!!!

Hello Dear Friends....

I hope your weekend 
has been going well
for you so far!!

I wanted to share my latest
little creation with you today.

I have been a follower of Diana
Trout for awhile now.
Diana has a book out called
"Journal Spilling" that for those
of you who love to journal
or always wanted to give it
a try, this is the perfect book
for you!!   Please take a moment
and visit her Blog. at...

Recently Diana gave us a challenge
a creative NUDGE if you will, to
try creating something from the fabric
or paper scraps that we
ALL have been I
mean collecting....!! The 
challenge is to glue the pieces
down onto a journal and just play
and not be concerned with being exact...which I have a
habit of doing too much TWEAKING in my art!!! here is what I call my Scrappy Happy
Journal Cover....some of these fabrics
are from a baby quilt I made a while ago,
I had saved every single scrap even the
words on the salvage....I love the one
on the lower side that says Boheme!

Ok, so now the rest of you go ahead
get "Scrappy Happy"!! Try making
something that might be out of your
comfort zone....but will free up some
of your piles of scraps that you have been
saving for that "SOMEDAY".....well someday
might just be "TODAY"!! It's alot
of fun... so go on now go get your glue stick and
some have FUN!!!
Show me what you have created ok? I would
love to see what you have come up with.
Diana called it a " Creative Revolution"
Lets start a Revolution of Creative Freedom!!!

Wishing you ALL Love, Blessings, Peace and BIG HUGS!!!
