A little bit every day, that's how I am keeping my hand in play! Creative play that is, and it feels good. It is also lovely to be blogging and documenting again. I do admit I only got to this place by giving up something . . . the amount of time I spent reading & writing on Facebook. I have signed off there for a bit - and for me, this was a very good decision. I now have more time to concentrate on my art and my own blog, hooray! I feel calmer (yet energized by art). I also have let go some of the depressing news cycle that was in my feed. I still follow some news of course, but it is less in my life, I find I am less upset and that is better for my psyche.
better this way!
This pocket journal page is one of the smaller ones. One-half of it was already done - a leftover gelli print! Very quick to do yet so satisfying. I used an "onion skin" stencil that looks like leaves, to me. I sprayed Distress Spray stain in mermaid lagoon (blue) and filled in with the Distress Oxide Pistachio and a sponge. This ink pad is still on my counter & I like the color, so I keep using it!
❤ These little forward motions in a creative way have my spirit soaring . . . .
Updates to the website:
- I have created another page showcasing my 2017 ICADs. Another small effort each day that really adds up!
- In the Photography section I have added Wolfe Island 2017 and Wolfe Island Sunsets. Beautiful Island in Ontario, Canada where Steve's family is from!
- My Dad's birthday was yesterday (he passed in 2011) and his page is HERE. He was very talented and creative, especially with small wooden boats. He taught Steve a lot about woodworking!
- The Urban Journal Remix page has been updated as well. A very cool journal. I loved making it via Roben-Marie's Workshop and even though it takes more time than the pocket journal, it is very enjoyable to fill!
