Some 4 by 4's



Some days you feel like creating, but you do not have time for something big. That is where these 4 by 4's come in for me. I like to keep several pre cut shapes - 3 by 5, 2 by 2, an inchies or two, some 4 by 4's and some postcards in an envelope on my work table. When I have left over paint on my brush I slap it on some, or left over scraps I randomly glue them on. Then when I need a quick something to start my creative juices I turn to these to get flowing. Simple but satisfying.
