The who, what and why behind Cynful Creations (artwork and jewellery created by Cynthia).
Thursday, May 29, 2014
Work continues outside my apartment door, albeit exceedingly slowly. The drywall has been installed
and this week, taped and sanded.
By the time I get home each night, only a thin layer of white dust and the tools of their trade remain behind to show they were there.
I must admit, the sight of this roll of mesh tape sitting unattended was tempting to me.
If it was already open, I would have very few qualms about taking a inch (foot) or so for my journal (okay, maybe a yard) - the mesh adds a wonderful texture underneath gesso or paint. But it's a brand new roll, still wrapped in plastic, and I tell myself if I really want some, I can just head to the hardware store and get some of my own, no need to steal it. So I left it there. Every day. For 3 days now. Perhaps I am being tested. Good girl or bad?
I wish they'd tidy up their stuff and put it away, or move on to the next floor. A girl can only be good for so long!
My first artistic addiction was beading and making jewellery, which I started doing in the summer of 2007. Since then, my artistic obsession has grown to include art journaling. Here in this blog, I write about my own and other people's creations and anything else that tweaks my fancy.
