Mix It Up With Melange Wednesday


The theme at Mix It Up With Melange blog for their challenge is "serendipity". With massive computer problems and my brain not working very well, I just could not wrap myself around this one. I had to dig extremely deep and think about when a "happy accident" so to speak, had contributed to my art. I finally remembered one Easter when I walked down the candy aisle at WM and thought, "those papers are so pretty, I must be able to use them". So, I bought a bag (unfortunately, I ate all the candy), glued the candy papers to transparencies and wrote an article for Stamping Arts&Crafts. That was many, many years ago.

Can't find any of those pieces but I did use candy papers again a few years later on aceos that I sold on Ebay. Here is one.......

Glenda, I've always known what a super dedicated artist you are, but to know you'd eat a whole bag of candy just to secure the necessary art supplies - well, I am just sooooo impressed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You go girl!!
