Art Therapy? Bless this mess....

So I'm now enamored of Dyan Reaveley, Ranger Ink's funky new designer, who is coming to NC this year! She has a line of sprays, stamps and stencils known as Dylusions which have the combined potential to create an awful mess by my "not neatnik" standards. Went with Wilda to Betty's stamp/scrap store in Greensboro to have way too much fun and get messy and play with Dyan's stuff... as you can see I bought a lot (this is just the backorder), we made a bunch of "art" journal pages, learned a bunch of really cool, totally off the wall techniques. I think this is the "new normal" for me until I decide to revert back to the "rules" of proper stamping and scrapping in a few months. With moving, finishing up OWH, art therapy--especially some I can do one-handed -
is just what I need?
This is about as far out of my comfort zone as moving to Florida would be but..... more mixed media added and getting the spray down and ... who knows what kinds of messes I will make.. So they call this art, do they? And now that I'm really retired...
