Getting messy

I have been itching to get my hands dirty!  Well, not really.  I hate having dirty hands, that is why I don't garden.  More like, I have been itching to get out some paint.  It feels all too long since I have played with paint and other messy art supplies.
I gutted an old accounting text book.  That felt kind of good!  Sometimes I wonder how I ever found that interesting.  Anyway, with just the cover left I decided to paint, emboss, glitter and sparkle it.  It seems a fitting way to say goodbye to bookkeeping.  Not that I will ever totally say goodbye to that side of me.  Now I need to create some wonderful pages to go into this 'new' book cover.

I'd be happy to make a 'mess' like this. It's great.

It was absolutely worth 'getting messy'. The result is awesome! Book keeping can be a good balance to your creative side - order vs free form.
