I Like Nonsense

"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells." ~ Dr. Seuss

I've been having a lot of fun lately playing around in a composition book given me by a friend years ago. She decorated the cover beautifully and left it up to me to take care of the inside. I've done some journaling and stamping inside, but just lately I've felt more like playing than being serious. It's a challege to saturate the thin pages with color without ruining the paper; I've been using dye based and pigment inks mostly. The really fun part comes when I grab my bag of words I've cut out from magazines and put together a random phrase. Okay, sometimes they're not all that random (I'm learning to be more free form when it comes to art, but I still tend to have control issues when it comes to words).

I especially like to take the photos of models, singers and actors and mess around with them.

What can I say? I like nonsense!

Very nice, Amy. Reminds me of the magnetic words you can put on a fridge and be creative! Let the mind wander!
