Life has been so busy that I began to lack motivation, inspiration and even confidence to really get back into doing art, the one thing that makes my soul feel so good.
Why is it that when I'm feeling down it can be so hard to just do the little things that brighten my spirits?
I guess it is just too simple, and sometimes simple just seems....
It's just too easy to make things difficult or stay stuck in my mind instead of my heart.
So I got out of my head and remembered that I needed to focus on all that is right and good in life.
That this is the day, the present moment, that God has given us and to enjoy.
Here's what I have been working on:
The beginning of a Vintage Harley-theme book purse I am making...
Then I found these cute little cardboard cut outs at the local dollar store.
I can use the pieces to add to projects and then use the background of the cardboard for stencils!
I added a couple of cutouts to a piece I was working on a while back:
Then I added some paint to the cutouts and a little bit of blue and green to the background,
and more gloss gel medium to add some texture:
The pictures are not that good. I really need to go out to Picasa and work on my pictures before posting.
That or learn how to take better pictures.
While I was waiting for the book purse covers to dry (I am actually working on 4) I thought I would try to just play around with some watercolors.
Flowers and dragonflies of course.
Time to work on these purses.
I hope everyone's Monday is Marvelous!
