It's been a bit of a busy week for me.
So I thought that today, I'd take a whole day and just make art, nothing else would get in the way.
It's a luxury that I have at the moment, and it's a luxury that I treasure. So today, I'm living my dream (even if it stops when I pick up Little Miss from preschool), I'm living my dream of making art
if even for a whole day.
don't you just LOVE the colors of this...
it's in my garden (I'm not even sure what it's called) it caught my attention as I was heading to the garage/art supply storage to get out some canvases... and you know i just love that pink.
You can't help but get inspired by your surroundings when you open your eyes to look.
I decided to start on an other altered book, as I'd so enjoyed making the last one, and I found some old mini board books hanging around.
I've made a start, I'm actually taking a break to type this post, I'm at the halfway point.
as usual I start with collage, it's become my background of choice.
I even (in fact it should say always) include some of my Little Miss' scribbles too. Every piece that I make now has something of hers in it somewhere, I really like that idea, it makes me happy.
The size is small too, its only 3.5" x 3.5".
This is where I'm at now.
I've called this book 'Just because' and quote running through on each page is from Marilyn Monroe.
Hopefully I'll be finished by hometime, I'll post the rest of the pictures tomorow.
I'm not sure if you have visited the 'workshops' age at the top of the page yet, but I've got something exciting to tell you...
well I'll just show you instead.
I'll be adding the first sessions topic to the workshop page today.
I really hope you might join me, it should be fun.
(and its entirely free)
In other news, I'm working to arrange a monthly newsletter called 'Art Eye Candy Love' that will launch on May 1st
so keep checking back to sign up.
It will be full of lovely Art Eye Candy, tips, treats and discount to the Etsy store, you'll also be notified if there is anything new before everyone else.
I'm really looking forward to this.
And I know that I have mentioned this before, but I'll also be opening workshops over in the
'Art Eye Candy Clubhouse'
more info coming REALLY soon.
I'm loving all the ways that we can connect...
I can't wait to get to know some of you more.
Just before I go back to the art table (dining room),
I wanted to share this little quote that one of my FB friends sent me...
Thank You Denise Bundy
