A Message From Me To Me

Usually I’m eager to share, but this painting had me struggling a bit. Truth be told, I have super mixed emotions about it. In fact, that was sort of the point of the Lifebook exercise. Freely putting paint, ink etc. down on the paper and seeing what emotions emerged. I did the background rather easily, […]

Collage Craziness: Part 2

So you may recall from the last post that I was in a collage frenzy. I felt so inspired by my renewed love of collage that I started working on what I hoped would become the cover of my latest journal. In the end I decided not to use it as the cover, but there […]

Collage Craziness: Part 1

Cracker Box Canvas + Solid Gold

LifeBook 2013: Painting Over a Picture

Hello all, I dropped back into Life Book this week, and I’m glad I did. This week we learned a simple way to paint a face that you can use in an art journal or collage or basically however you would like: painting over a photograph. When I was younger I used to draw fairly […]

Small Journal: Live Creatively

I have been attacking this small journal lately to the exclusion of all other artistic pursuits, including LifeBook which I actually paid for 🙂 Oh well, lately I’m all about just doing the thing that  makes me the happiest, and that has been just collaging away in the small journal. This is a favorite quote, […]
