A Week of Inspiration - Day 5

Well this is the last day in my 'Week of Inspiration' and I have a small selection of quotes which I am calling inspiration soup. These kind of sums up my thoughts on the subject and there is truth in every one.

I shall leave with a piece of my own artwork, created over the past few days; a combination of inspiration drawn from several places. 

The background is a mixture of dictionary paper and modeling paste, painted over with acrylics and then inked. The heart has been run through an embossing folder and then spritzed with inks and sponged with distress. I made the paper feather from more dictionary paper and then coloured with a mixture of inks and paint. There are a couple of handmade flowers in there, the rest are paper along with some mini pine cones, some wires I twisted into spirals and a pearl pin.

Finally I stamped the word imagine from the Artistic Expressions stamp set.

Thank you for taking time out to comment, your support is always valued and I hope that some of what you have read has given you food for thought. I shall be back on Monday with a brand new 'Week of...'

Gosh the week has just flown by. I loved your ispirational thoughts - especially as I'm sitting here avoiding tackling a card image that isn't doing what I want ... I'll go and try and reach an understanding with it :-)
Your art is lovely - opulent and elegant - thanks for the week of inspiration and I look forward to next week - cheers

The feathers just add lovely movement to this together with your swirly wire & I love the mixture of colours with the tiny splash of very deep blue. Thank you for a wonderful week & a giggle this morning with your very truthful quotes.
