Good Thoughts Came to Me

QUEEN OF GOOD THOUGHTS ART DOLL

Actually I shoud have said “Good Thoughts came BACK to me”!  I made this little art doll a year ago and Luminary Arts Gallery sent her back because she became shop worn…her little sheet music crown was mussed AND she didn’t sell.  I decided I might rehabilitate her but the contents of the bottle needed to go.

I removed all the little scrolls and sorted them “losers” and “INSPIRING!”

Guess which pile was the biggest?

Some of these were just nice phrases I could add to my collection…but some caused an actual collage idea to pop in my head.

IDEA: USE MAGAZINE FONTS FOR THE PHRASE.

Thanks little good thoughts bottle.  I will put the bottle doll in my redo box until a fantastic idea pops in my head!  Even though these are just plans inspired by these nice thoughts, I hope one of them inspired you today!
