Over at Creative Tuesday the theme for the current challenge is - Ideal Coffee Break and it had to include a cuppa coffee/tea. I actually don't drink coffee, but somehow the idea of an "ideal" break appealed to me. I created a page in my fledgling art journal (I've almost filled my first one!) and then I used my camera to show a different take on the perfect coffee break.
I used a page from a recycled address book for the body of the mug and only glued the edges so I was left with a little pocket. The "steam" from my coffee is from scraps of scrapbooking papers; the background is watercolor; my steam tendrils say Read, Feet up, Quiet, Tangle, Friend, Daydream for the elements of a perfect break!
The first photo is as taken and then I added a little vignetting texture to the next one ..... I'm sitting right there, feet up, daydreaming away!
Be sure to check out all the other entries for Ideal Coffee Break over at Creative Tuesday. ED to add: Also discovered a new artist sharing site Artists in Blogland which is serving as a directory of artist blogs and she has a Saturday sharing where you can share whatever you've been working on that week. So, I'm sharing.
