Lots of ideas come to me when I'm stuffing my face, oddly enough… no clue why… *snort* Anyhoo, that's when this one came to me. The mind is a very curious thing… Go figure!

Musings: I'm fascinated by the feathers trend… not sure if it's cuz I like birds, and puttin' birds on things… not an altogether impossible theory… LOL!



The feather made me think of quill pens, and pretty hand-lettering, and some kind of "heavenly", or angelic aura… And by golly the idea that popped into my head is exactly what you see here.


And… abnormal. Hah! I don't normally work with pastel colors; typically my eye seeks out bold, bright hues… and my hands always reach for the same in the ink pad drawer, LOL!

I was also playing with my Mister Hueys mists… they are unpredictable–which sometimes drives me batty, but I love the look and, well, they're fun. Spray bottles are fun! And… a little messy… Aaaaah, but that's what gloves and full body aprons are for, eh?! *chuckle*

BTW, speaking of gloves… I have a video tutorial over in the CLASSroom, which you can see HERE.

And, Clean & Simple 2 just started today and I love what my co-teachers and our guest designers have shown–if you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late to join the fun!

Hope your Mundane was awesome!
