An Artist at Heart

So today I've been working on my art journal for the "Gut Art" online workshop I'm taking. Only a couple of days into the workshop and I'm already learning things about myself and my creative expression.

As I was sorting out my various art supplies and organising what I would need, I realised that my water spray mister was broken. Now that might not seem a huge deal but for someone that uses a spray mister alot while working, it's a big deal. Sunday afternoon. Not many, if any shops open. I need a water mister. Can't do without one. I know it.

Improvise. There must be something in the house that can be used as a water mister. Looking around my bedroom, there it was. The absolute perfect water mister. Oh but the bottle was practically brand new and had produt still in it. A bottle of Elle McPherson Body Mist! Luxurious when getting out of the shower or bath! Hmm what can I put it in? Nothing. Couldn't find anything and so without thinking any more of it, I tipped the whole lot in the toilet!!

I cleaned out the bottle. Twice over. And there it was the perfect water mister. Yay! Definitely an artist at heart. When I was telling Steve, I told him it seems I'd rather have art supplies than be beautiful using beauty products... and his answer... awww so sweet... Apparently, I don't need beauty products. I'm beautiful just the way I am! hahaha!
