I really don’t know how to paint or knit or crochet. Well, my wonderful mother-in-law did teach me to knit and crochet when I was a very young lady but I never practiced enough. The only way I can explain why I’ve been so hung up on messy, distress painting and playing with fuzzy yarn is that it is FUN. Proof below that you don’t need to be a talented genius or spend tons of time to be artistic and creative. You just need to PLAY. It also doesn’t hurt to buy a nice selection of Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paints (cracked cardboard, where have you been all my life?) or spend a few hours yarn-hunting on eBay. I admit it. I’m a needy-stuff artist . . .
Don’t be afraid to crack up a little and sprout your inner wild child. Be messy. Because there’s no messing up.
