Out for a bit!!

I'm back!!! Art calendar not going so well but hey, what can I say I'm creative spirit. I have to follow my heart. And today my heart is screaming for paint!!!!!
Wonderful BF is out shoping for containers for candles. He apparently got a hold of the art calendar. He can read!!!! So maybe I can get some soap anca candles going before the week is up, but I'm not pushing. I have a journal to complete. My god sister had ababy and asked at least 3 months ago that I make her baby book. And when did I start. Let's just say he beat the book.
Well this is what I have managed to get done. Do I always sound so scattered?
As you can see I'm still in a bit of a practice mode when it comes to drawing. I was told I couldn't draw when I was younger but over the last few years I said forget it, what comes out it what comes out.
Enjoy your day and all that creativity brings you!!!

TUESDAY'S Words of Encouragement-- From Aunt Pat

Aunt Pat sends words of encourage ment every morning. I liked today's enought to share. Be blessed, Candace The Word Transforms
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 3:18 Take hold of God's Word, and plant it deep in your heart by reading it and meditating on it every day. As you look into the Word, you will be transformed into the image of Jesus Christ. Joyce Meyer ********************************************************** With Love & Prayers,Sis.

2007- A Year in Art- By Your's Truly of Course!!!

Into the new year I have plunged. I have made a calander for myself to go by this year since I wondered aimlessly through last year. I have set some goals for my self, for my art and I am the only person stopping me.
This calendar I spoke of is broken into 2 week incremints. I have 2 weeks to work on anything (this is the hard part) given it fits into the catagories I have assigned. I have learned so many artsy things that I just have to jump into head first of course, and I can't focus let alone finish anything. How do you work through this.
This week is the last of my paper/paint/collage week and of course I just found a wealth of pics to motivate my collage jucies right!!! BUt for now they will just have to be bookmarked and I will put remindres on my calendar to look at thos when it's paper week again.. I'm so sad.
Here are a snap shot of year end work that will be either put to the side or given a new creative purpose before clean up day. Sorry the pics are a little dark. My digital cam is down adn the camera phone is a little dark.
This first one is one of a few little paintings I make when when working on larger projects. Say my brush is completly loaded with one color and I just have to switch color NOW!! I paint 3x5 cardstock. the back ground of this was stamped with paper napkins.
This second one is a freeform papier mache heart that I made for an alter project.
OK well off to a weekend of creating!!! Will have pics Monday, digi cam or not!!!!
Happy Creating.

I can't get started!!

Reason being- I can't stop reading!!!!! I am gathering so much info right now it's almost strange. I am begining the new year in control. I've decided, and it's day 4, 361 to go right. I made up in my mind that my only " resolution" this year was to have a better attitude about life in general. But I'm really consintrating on my health, my home, my art. I spent the later [part of last year in a funk, but reading. I had been looking for information on altered art and collage, and I just wasn't finding much. An d then in November it wasliek a flood gate I have found so much art candy!!!!! This is how Big D discribes me when I start talking about art in general. I on vacation from the money maker(J-O-B) all next week. I'm planning my year out. I want to dedicate a week to one type of project. Like right now I want to make jewelry but every surface is covered in paper and paint. I know it's sad. But it's like my mom has her purses, my sister has her shoes, and I have my art stuff!!! So next week while I'm off I am going to try to plan out at least the next 3 months, and get organized!! Wish me luck right? seeing as now I can't get the camera phone to work, I still have no new pics for you. This will also be worked on while I'm off next week. But trust and believe art will be in the making.
