Do you ever a have BLANK day?

I sure did go blank today.  

As much as I love creating, life sometimes gets in the way.   Here are some tips to get over the BLAHS.
Humor can help.  Think of a funny quote and run with it in your art.  Envision the words but in art form!

I see a watercolor banana or a collaged banana or a deconstructed picture of Betty White in a collage with or without a banana.
We have some snarky and humorous word stamps to kickstart a card idea.  

Another great way to jumpstart your creations.  Take ONE item from your art supplies and lay it down on paper or whatever is handy.   I tear apart cardboard or corrugated boxes for a base.  Use a text page and scribble with a gelato, blend it and see what happens.   Add another layer of torn paper or a stencil and you are halfway to a gorgeous artwork.  Our collages create magic!

I hope this helps with some inspiration for your week of creating ART.

This week All Gelatos are; buy one - get one free; order your choices and we adjust the payment amount before processing your order.

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello in the comments.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
