Purple Punchinella

Just a quick post today- lots to be done and not enough time…The sunshine lately has just brought on a sense of  joy that led  me to start playing around again with my hardware store punchinella. It is such an inexpensive supply – especially since it is self adhesive!

I made a huge sheet of it and then began to cut circles- the shape I have been drawn to this week.  I created layered circle things using spray ink on very very cheap paper muffin liners and then cutting circles out of them.   Lots of scribbling, a touch of book text as the smallest circle, and a bit of my painted artist tape balled up for the center.

This is what was left on the paper after I colored the hardware store punchinella.  I already have plans for it.  I love it when one piece of art leads to another like a meandering river.

If you have a few minutes there are wonderful artists over at Paint Party Friday, Julie Balzer’s Art Journal Every Day and Creative Everyday.  Stop on by and check them out.

    As my granddad would say…”If you don’t beat all.”
    I am going to Home Depot tomorrow, and Lord knows what I will come home with, or what I might do with it. Thanks for the inspiration.
