On My Art Table...

What is on your art table?

It was so nice this week to spend time creating.  My friend Susan was visiting from California so we set up shop in the dining room where we had a nice view of the water and lots of space to spread out. 

Me and Susan!

I worked a little in my art journal.  I have been interested in exploring the human form so we'll see where that takes me!

I also spent some time working on a new class idea that involved lots of cool papers made with the Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate.

Art Journaling at Retreat...

Hello!

I am in Orlando enjoying some girl time with my art friends this weekend!  We visited the Farmer's Market earlier today to purchase edibles for our home cooked meal and have spent the rest of the day creating in the studio.  I had a hard time feeling inspired, which happens from time-to-time but I finally just started applying paint to the pages and adding paper scraps and things began to evolve. Here is what I have so far!  Not sure if I will actually finish these pages this weekend but I will post my progress so check back.

Have a  blessed day!

I'm Working On This...

I was inspired this past weekend by a post on the Journal Girl blog!  Kira arrived at the studio to find a note left for her by an artist friend. It was on her art table and simply asked: "What are you working on?"  I am responding to that with this post.  I don't often "show" myself working in the studio deep in the process of creating. I am back to working more faithfully in my art journals.  It gives me a place to design and develop ideas for future projects and this day was a good day.  So, some insight...the things that aren't so obvious:

•I watched/listened to the maraton run of The Librarian while I worked.

•It was pouring rain all day and I felt super cozy inside the studio.

•I ate boiled peanut hummus for a snack.

 

What are you working on right now?

For Me @ Twenty-One...

Hello!

If you could tell yourself something at twenty-one what would it be? What advice would you give? What knowledge would you share?  I was asked to do just that for an on-going project.  Be sure to check out A Journey in Hindsight: At Twenty-One for more details.

I also want to thank everyone who joined me at 21 Secrets Live last night while I created this page. It was fun and I appreciate your questions and kind words!

Have a  blessed day!

I love Mary Freeman's art journals!  Her pages are bright and vibrant and full of emotion.  I also really like her handwriting.  Mary used my Art Pops™ cards in several creative ways.  Check out her blog HERE for more inspirations!

Anke Kramer created a lovely card and layout with the Art Pops™ cards. I like the softness of her layers and how well the pops of color fit nicely with her style! Check out her blog HERE for more photos!
