A "DREAMED UP" BACKGROUND

Sometimes I dream about art; what I will do the next day, what will I paint or letter. There is a piece of scrapbook paper that I love that I am dying to find out how they gave it the distressed look. So I dreamed about how I would do this and this is what I created from what I dreamed. Sounds crazy, doesn't it?---but I actually dreamed about how to do it. Even in our dreams we can be creative! (...hope you don't think it was a nightmare!) It looks pretty much like the paper. This is on a 9x 12 stretched canvas. I don't know what I will do with it so I will just let it sit for a while until---maybe I dream about what to do with it!

God has ways of delivering inspiration to us. I love this background and look forward to seeing how you use it.

Love your background Martha! I often dream about quilt design...or I dream the perfect answer to a sewing/painting job that I've been stumped on. Someone told me it was a gift from "the art god"...we know better, don't we?

And I thought I was alone with those dreams. Great to know I share the same notions. GREAT background.
