Random glimpses into the thoughts of a woman- searching for life's answers - or maybe just asking the questions and living them. Trying to live creatively and authentically. Learning to BE - HERE - NOW.
Hope everyone had a GREAT Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful time - ate entirely too much. Enjoyed my family.
I have been playing with my art - enjoying it thoroughly. This was a journal page. I am not a dancer. Two left feet or worse BUT as I was exercising the other day I realized you can DANCE in your heART all the time. And so, this page came to be.
I picked three winners for my giveaway. It seemed silly to only give one book away. I have emailed the winners for their addresses. The winners were:
Julie Jordan Scott
It was fun to have a giveaway. Thanks for playing!
What a nice relaxing weekend - had time to make a fabric book which turned out better than my first one : )
Did some sketching (I'm in the learning process) I find it very difficult and frustrating but I am getting better. Painted backgrounds in my journals. At one point I think I had 4 journals open working on them. What fun : )
This month doing AEDM has been a great motivator for me. It is said if you do something for 3 weeks it becomes a habit. And I find that true. I find myself thinking throughout the day of what I want to capture with my art. It has been such a fun experience. I enjoy visiting the other blogs and seeing what people have been up to. I love meeting the creators and artists thru their blogs. Makes me feel a bit more connected.
I've created this background in one of my journals. ( I have 5 in various sizes.) I loved how it turned out but now I don't know what to do with it. Guess I'll keep it out and some inspiration will come to me.I enjoy making backgrounds. No stress, just fun.
I hope everyone has an art-filled day : ) Don't forget to leave a comment for my giveaway!
I've been creating little gift card books - fun, fun!
I would love to give everyone who visits me a gift but that isn't feasible so I will give a gift card book to someone who visits my blog. I have enjoyed visiting other's blogs and having you visit mine so much that I want give THANKS by a giveaway! I started this blog in hopes that I could find others who love creating and exploring art and I have!
So, if you would like to be entered in the giveaway, leave a comment to this post. I will randomly pick a name next Wednesday (Nov. 25th) and announce the winner! The winner can choose which design they would like.
Saturday - cards, cards, and more cards. Went to a class for Basic Grey cards at A Small Cleverness. Fun to sit and just make the 12 cards without having to really think - just follow the example. I always come home with new ideas about color and composition. My art therapy! I tell my family it is much cheaper than seeing a therapist!
Even more tags for a tag exchange I'm participating in - and then extra tags because I went crazy. I will be continuing these. They are quite addictive - I've never done ATC's but I can see why people are crazy about them. These tags are not as small as ATC's but I enjoyed the small area and just playing with color and elements.
Then last night I started making more gift card books. I think I will be hosting a giveaway Thanksgiving week. Stay tuned for details!
Yesterday I found them in my stash of stuff and thought hmmmm. . . Then at the local store I found these paper tags. . . add some vintage lace and buttons and I've become a bit crazy!! I find myself wanting to make tons of these!! Something about the lace and dryer sheets pleases me to no end. These aren't finished yet but will be by this evening.
