My Muse

My journal page today features my magic ribbon. I drew it from top to bottom with a black ink gel pen, then filled in the "pockets" with doodles. I used Copics to color the page, then I started adding sequins, adhesive pearls and gems and a patch I found at the bottom of one of my craft drawers. I added coordinating colors of Stickles to bring out my ribbon. And I finished off my page with a Washi tape border.

I call it my magic ribbon because after I drew its lines, I was inspired to "go all out" with my page. Usually I use ink, marker and magazine cuttings and that's it. But I look at my finished page and it makes me so happy. I wanted to share it with you today... 

I am glad I finally got out of my slump. I've been sick for the past 2 weeks, and my healthy eating and cardio workouts have suffered. evidently, so has my confidence and my inspiration. As I get over my bronchitis and sinus infection, I feel creativity returning. Thank goodness!!

Challenges I am Entering:

Outlawz Twisted Thursday - Anything Goes w/Twist (I bought the patch years ago from Hobby Lobby, my Copics are several years old, the sequins came from my mom's house where she kept ALL her old Girl Scout craft supplies, and I haven't bought ne washi tape in eons)
