I is for inspiration

I am trying to work on a larger scale than the one I'm used to. The little format of ACEOs is non-threatening. Art squared (4x4) was a big step for me. This one is the largest collage I ever made - it is 5.5" x 8.5". There is some journaling, painting, collaging, stamping... the words say searching for, looking for, fishing for....... Inspiration. There is more text, scratched words and little hidden thoughts.

I often wonder do people try to notice little things that artists put in their work. It is fun when you can combine things... like I used Goethe's words "Boldness has power, genius, magic in it"... and found a little piece from a vintage book with the word magic and made a hat for the bird.


As soon as I wrote it - the problem was gone! If only my other problems can be solved that way... The big problem now is that my website is graphic heavy and that comcast (my host) is unbelievably slow.... It's no fun waiting for pictures to show up.

In hidding

Good... I managed to hide the blog link on my website. I want to try it out but I don't want everyone to see it, so this is a good option. I can't change the html that shows under my picture... I wonder why.... it doesn't show on the page where I can edit it. Silly things like that irritate me.

Testing the grounds

Let me start by admitting that I have no idea what I'm doing... I have been hooked on reading blogs for a while now. I guess I wanted to be a part of it... Right now I'm not sure what my user name is, what the name that shows is, what the blog name is... I just kind of typed similar names for all, and hopefully I'll be able to change it when I figure it out.

Also, I have no idea how people find blogs and do they really read them. I'll pretend that I'm alone in the cyber space and write when I feel like it. I can always delete it, right?
