"Humor does not rescue us from unhappiness but enables us to move back from it a little." - Mason Cooley
Ever since Aimee Dodich (artsyville.blogspot.com) did what she called a "teardrop chop and plop" (hee hee), I've been meaning to make some droplets from my pretty junk papers.
Wanna see some of my favorite "secret weapons"? That crepe tape (found near the drafting section at Hobby Lobby) is a perfect way to add graphic detail without the headache of attempting a straight line with a pen/marker and a ruler. Since it is made from paper you can tear it without using scissors (like washi tape). Another handy trick is to type your sentiment/quote in Word with a fun font and then cut and paste into your art journal. This font is called IMPACT LABEL (through dafont.com) and is free for personal use. Be careful, once you get inside that site it is hard to free yourself - kinda like quicksand - the BEST quicksand ever!!
