LETTING THE KID IN YOU COME OUT TO PLAY.......IT's ALL ABOUT COLOR....



I believe creating anything....is about letting the child that is inside of you come out to play.  Remember as a kid you could daydream for hours and your imagination would go wild!!  

Well.....I believe that is just what we need to do when making anything creative.

I spent time in the studio this weekend just messing around with junk.  Had an old mirror I bought at a yard sale...many moons ago...lots of jars of buttons...and decks of old game cards that my 8 year old grandson no longer plays with....so...I decided to put it all to good use.

Now if you know me....you know my home is all ABOUT COLOR....any kind....almost anywhere.....

This is what I came up with....


Haven't put the sealer on it yet as it needs to dry overnight....but I think it is pretty cute....especially for a young grand child or baby's room....OR for a grandma who is still very young at heart!!

I'm going to put this right in my living room among the other very colorful pieces of art I have collected.   I do believe every home ought to have something a little "cheeky" in it to bring out the smiles

What do you think?

Hugs to all,

Jo

P.S.  I'll give you a peak at it once it is hung.

  1. Way cool. What is amazing to me is that when I look back to when I was young, I really did not have that imagination that ran wild. I hated coloring, my art work was stick people and an odd looking house. And art was my least favorite subject. Thank goodness there are people like you to offer those of us who are so challenged the beauty of their world.
