"Laugh Out Loud"....don't you wish we do this more often?

At Tuesday Throwdown this week,
the challenge was
to create a card
without using printed papers.
I was only too delighted to work with my new
Canson mixed media tablet again!
Since I had not yet put away the products I had used
on a previous project ( I know, I know shame
on me for not tidying up immediately
after a project), this card came
together rather quickly.
Hmm..makes me think I should always
leave my work area a little messy.
Oh how I love the freedom of starting
from a blank piece of paper and wondering
where it will take me.
This journey took me to a place of
sweet pansies.
I use to collect them in all forms
and was lucky to find several
vintage post cards from the early 1900's from
a vintage shop years ago before
things like that became in demand and costly too.

Need some inspiration?
