Create a Living Canvas – Art Journaling Entry
While some things in our lives we CANNOT control, some things we can. Often we can determine the outcome of something. For example . . . the principle of planting, is that you will reap what you sow. You plant and put in the hard work, you’ll usually always get a good harvest. The principal of giving is that you give, it will come back around to you. Our lives can be a blank canvas and often we can choose to ‘create’ a canvas that is full of color and joy. So often it’s a choice. Even with the things we can’t control, we still have a choice in how…

I am Grateful for Reflection
Dina Wakley’s Challenge this month is “I am Grateful for Reflection.” So true . . . there is certainly some good time at the moment with staying home to reflect. I have been reflecting on the future, how I can have an impact, how I can bring encouragement to others, and more. It’s so important to reflect in order to learn, grow, and to look to the future. I wonder what you’re reflecting upon. Even though things can look bleak, I do hope that you are reflecting on things that bring you encouragement and hope for the future. Warmest creative wishes,

Especially today, right now, there is a lot of stress in life. There’s worry about a pandemic, and the future. There’s strife about politics. Several tasks that used to be fun or relaxing are now work or a ‘chore.’ With all the stuff going on in life . . . it’s good to be a little silly sometimes. I created the below art journal page as a reminder of the importance of being silly and carefree. As adults I think we get caught up at times in having so much responsibility and forget to let loose a little. Run in the sprinklers, enjoy some ice cream, play a funny game…
Using Recyclables In Your Art
The below art journaling page is made from scraps and some paint. I am always picking up things off the ground that have rusty goodness or a look of old to them. I’m always keeping an eye out for things that have had a prior life or purpose and using them in art. I make sure I clean my hands and the item after collecting it, but recycling, or ‘upcycling’ is something can be fun and make your pages unique. I’m thinking more art journal here, but below are some items you could upcycle; Some things I’ve collected along the way and used include; Metal pieces that are rusty (can…
