A Bit of Art Time Hope in the Forecast...

Woo Hoo! Tax Season is all signed, sealed, delivered and done! 
That is something to Celebrate.

I find each year, I put off my mojo with the looming and ever present tax season that creeps into the brain....
Never wanting to use my precious brain cells for practical things as I age, the idea of counting figures, and playing with invoices never is as appealing as playing with paper and scissors....

The very same day that weeks of working on returns was over,
I dug out my wonderful graphics library of goodies just to have a play with some digital works to get the mojo into gear....
Crowabout StudioB over at Mischief Circus gave me a good start.

It's funny once you start, time just slips away, along with the 
list of other things you should be doing.....grin......

And before you know it, you get the urge to get down to some major mojo time.....
( don't know who's the worst for being an influence, Crowabout StudioB, or Tumble Fish Studio or Miles Beyond the Moon, or
Itkupilli....but it's all their fault....grin)

So I carved out some time, which set a prickly mood for those wanting my attention.....and set forth with some 
Cut and Paste in mind.....

Testing the waters of Mojo with a ATC seemed like
a good idea, and Tumble Fish Studio's Girlie Faces
always sets me off....grin....

...found for such a small piece like an ATC that I still
yearned to let the mojo loose.....HA!

Inches were fun, but not quite what I was yearning for...
(although, I now have been motivated with these great graphics from Art Chix old series, and have jars of pre-cut Inches, in the ready for another batch when the mood strikes and time is at the premium!)

Graduated to some tags.....which leads to Washi Tape ....grin...

Which leads to Post Card Arts....
All those cereal boxes pre-cut into 4 x 6 cards
just made it so simple to carry on! 
And do my part for recycling! GRIN

By this time, days into my mojo waking up,
and with all the motivating yumminess of 
of such an assortment of fabulous graphics to 
play with...

I finally managed to get to a BIG page bit of art time play....

Wonderful Graphics, and Washi Tape and Stamps, Inks,
and Stains and oh my.....
Thank you Tumble Fish Studio and Crowabout StudioB
Miles Beyond the Moon and Itkupilli 
for all of the support or should I say influence...grin.

After a week of play time, I now find myself thinking about
projects like assemblages....seems the mojo has been
dusted off, reenergized and has come to life again!
Now if it would just quit raining and let Spring arrive! 
Think of all the outdoor projects I can put off doing 
for some Art Time! HA!!!

Hope You get some Art Time too!!
