This little thing you see above was totally inspired by this month's Free People graphics. A few weeks ago I pressed some flowers for this DIY, and now I have a bunch of them just sitting at my desk -- so I scanned them, put them in Photoshop, played around for a little, and came up with whatever it is you're looking at up there.
The photo is of my little Ollie smelling some flowers on my kitchen table. I don't think I've ever really done a mixed media piece before (does this even count as mixed media?), but it was so much fun. I love creating things that don't necessarily make sense or have a purpose. And it's rare that I have a chance to do it -- actually, it's rare that I MAKE a chance for myself to do it. I want to start devoting more time to being creative, instead of only doing so whenever I have a spare moment. Just as time must be allotted for eating food and doing laundry, time must be allotted for creativity. After all, it's one of my biggest values in life. You might even say I live for it.
