Creative 365: Day 17 more bohemian bedroom additions & playing with icicle images

Today I took the textures I made with the photos of icicles and used them to create two new digital images.

My mother has been in the hospital since early this week, and so I have been unable to sleep and have found myself playing around with a lot of images and losing myself in 'mindless' creative things, just goofing around with effects I've never tried and looking for images to meld together with those I have snapped myself.  My mom is a very creative spirit herself, and it has felt right to be experimenting with different ideas even if some of them will never go any further than a post here on my blog. 

I have been creating my own space, a retreat where I can re-energize, meditate, read, create. When I make my thrift stores trips, I have been looking not only for things to recycle and repurpose in my art, but things for my room as well.  Yesterday after visiting mom I went rummaging and found a variety of colorful sheer window panels and a few new pillows. Slowly it is coming together, piece by piece!

When spring comes, I intend to paint what walls I've not covered in fabric yet!  I also have a sheer canopy coming for over my bed. More photos to come!
