Is there any feeling (artistically speaking) better than purchasing a brand new box of crayons? You get them home...sit in front of the box...open the lid, sniffing in the fragrance of the colorful bouquet of wax sticks, and welcome in the possibilities that are only limited by your imagination.
I love crayons...have kept a box for myself when I color with the girls. Recently, however, I gave my special box to my eldest daughter. Now, I have the strongest desire to sit with my little box of possibilities and a blank page and doodle until my wee little heart's content. Alas, I am without my dear little friends! I think it is time to procure for myself a new box. One with 120 colors just waiting for me to scribble with them. Perhaps the next time I am in town I'll bring them home.
I love the feeling that comes from creative inspiration. Whether it be from a simple box of crayons, a new stamp, a wonderful collection of patterned papers and fabulous embellishments...expressing your inner child or advanced artistic abilities is such a wonderful thing. Lets see what we can create in the days to come. I'm hoping for some spectacular LOs and a chance to expand my comfort zone with the use of new techniques. (I still want those crayons. I think I'll start my sketches with them.) Let the fun begin!
