If you read my post a week and a half ago called "Artist's Block" you may remember that I'm making an altered book in an art class, and I can't seem to figure out where to start. So yesterday my friend Lisa and I ventured out to various thrift stores in search of inspiration. I was thrilled to find some old dress making patterns. Yes, it's true, I'm easily excitable. I also got something that you may think of as cookie or scone cutters. You would be wrong about that because they look like cool stamps to me. I also found an old handkerchief and a great puzzle of a Chinese street scene. All in all, I spent a total of $4.06. A definite bargain! Now I am inspired! To top it all off Lisa lent me a fabulous book on collage. Thanks Lisa! The pictures in this book are beautiful. I can't speak to the information because I haven't been able to tear my eyes away from the pictures! I have added all these elements to my brain, stirred and next post I'll show you what I come up with.
