Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Give Yourself The Time You Need

I just returned from a trip that took me through the Mexico City Airport. It was quite the scene, due to the swine flu...so many of us were wearing blue respiratory masks. Underneath that mask I was full of stress and worry. So today - after arriving home at 10:30 last night and having worked the whole weekend I decided to give myself the time I needed to rest, relax and slowly create this card. Somehow rolling the marbles in a dish with a few drops of reinker and then letting the marbles roll across the very vanilla paper (which was temporarily attached to the inside of a box lid) was quite mesmerizing! What a great technique to give yourself the time you need to slow down and recharge! (I'm also planning on taking Friday and Monday off...craft room, here I come!!!!)

The bird is from the On Board So Tweet by SU! I covered it with gesso and then sponged ink on top. The pink part of the bird was embossed with clear embossing powder. Hope you like it!
