Slicing and dicing my way to something new. Inspired by my old seashell frame I decided to have a little fun experimenting with recycled material, and reusing my old watercolor art.
Recycled material: Heavy weight cardboard, picture frame (no glass) decorative paper and my watercolor art.
Chopping things up is very therapeutic.. My art in pieces!
Placed decorative paper on the cardboard, after playing with the placement of the art I adhered the pieces to the board. Washes of paint were added to the background and I coated everything with clear matte mod podge to seal it. The final result.
In the midst of a blizzard inspiration happened after I pulled a cardboard insert from my newly bought gloves. With all the time spent indoors this weekend ( and shoveling), I couldn’t resist creating a wintery mixed media piece. Snowspiration!
Mixed media on wood: (everything but the kitchen sink) Cardboard insert, Acrylic paint, glitter paint, tissue paper, patterned paper, paper flowers, clear beads, pearls, clear matte medium, gloss dimensional medium
Out of the shadow
light draws an appearance
I see differently today
Placement makes all the difference. As shadows grew over the art, the light made its presence, it soaked upon my thoughts, sharing in words of inspiration today.

Sometimes we need a reminder, not to worry about what other people think or how they conduct themselves. Continue to do your own thing, YOU have potential!

The masks we choose to hide behind become even bigger burdens to carry…. Know that you are enough.

The stupid moments of the day you wish you can just erase. Maybe hide, or submerge oneself entirely in a glass of wine, unlikely……. Instead I will try and draw myself there..
Pressures of the day can be demanding. Oh I will shrink myself down, down, down not because of fear, but to be one with nature, one with the leaves, grass, and flowers. I will submerge in the surroundings and be one with myself. Peace is restored.
Doodle: Pen & colored pencil on paper
I try to uphold to a morning routine by carving out time for myself before the hectic throws of the day. My commitment to writing three long hand pages (morning pages) began many years ago when I read the book, The Artist Way, by Julia Cameron. The routine of writing everyday clears the mind, relieves stress and allows you to tap into your well of creativity on a regular basis. My writing this morning inspired this doodle.
