I was Invited To Be A Guest

I feel very honoured this month to have my blog name, "Bliss and Gesso", be used as the inspiration for a very fun and very popular challenge site called More Than Words.
They also, very kindly, invited me along to be their guest for the month of March.

You can visit HERE at More Than Words and maybe play along with this months challenge.
This is how I was inspired by the word "bliss" and of course "gesso" is such a basic when working with mixed media.

My "bliss" is to surround myself with as much mixed media as I can find, play with it and see where it leads me. I feel like my head is so wired up to colour, texture and pattern, that once all the cogs and nuts and bolts start working I become totally absorbed and lost in my own creative world.

Here's a little bit of info about my blog and how I chose the name. Apart from the obvious meanings of the words "Bliss" and "Gesso", I have a love of Hip Hop music, and in particular an Australian band called BLISS N ESO, so I just put the two together.
Language warning, but their intent is always good.

Thanks for visiting today. Hope you can join in the "bliss and gesso" challenge at More Than Words.
