Getting ready...

So, I don't know about you guys, BUT - I love the process of gathering up the supplies for an art project. It's almost like shopping ya know?! Except of course, we all have our stash of odds and ends and doodads so it's all FREE!! And, sometimes you come across stuff you forgot you even had! Anyway, I'm supposed to be making the crinoline tags for the swap and I finally had time to gather and I'm almost done with them. I'll post the final tag tomorrow!

Soul Journal Progress

I was able to work on my Soul Journal this weekend. I finished Page 1-4. Haven't seen everyone else's pages yet, but mine look like a total mess! BUT - it was soooo much fun! Especially the paint drip technique...I got a little carried away with that one! Here's the link to Sarah Whitmire's blog which has the journal details:

Then - my daughter decided to do a paint drip canvas for her newly painted room. She put a little too much water on it though, so all the colors came together and she didn't care for it. So we'll gesso over it so she can try it again!!

Here's my 'taped' page that we're supposed to go back to and do 'anything we want' with it. Hmmm...this is where I get stuck sometimes - a blank canvas is somewhat intimidating to me sometimes. Anyone else?

I like this quote that was on one of the Yahoo Art Groups I belong to:
"An artist does not organize her calendar, studio, notes, thoughts, and life for the sake of organization. Indeed, she may be inclined to resist organization on principle, on the principle that to stop to contain the chaos just for the sake of neatness is a waste of her precious time. True enough: but the dangers of disorganization are themselves profound. Can she really do everything she means to do- her art and her art business, her loving relating, her work inside herself and her work outside- without some careful organization? " ~Affirmations for Artists by Eric Maisel
