Day 162: Inspired by Love (For Rebecca)

     Today is Sunday so you know what that means... that's right, it's Inspired by a Friend's Blog day.  This week we're inspired by Rebecca's "365 Days of Love" project.  You can check it out at  The more people out there trying to spread the love, the better, I say.  Not sure this is exactly up to par with her stuff, but after decided to pull a slip from my box of ideas, I ended up with this.  The slip said "writing with ink" which is pretty self-explanatory and you can see it yourself right under the v and the e.  Instead of simply writing on a new piece of paper, I thought it might be a good idea to use some pieces from a bag of paper bound for recycling.  After pasting some bits onto an early draft of a previous project, I just smeared some ink pad and gesso over top before writing out the message in regular black drawing ink.

  1. Fantastic!!! It is beautiful, Cassy. I love the recycled element and the design is lovely - the bold background blocks with the delicate overlay. Nicely done, my cohort in spreading the love! :)
