Kit & Clowder Mindful Me Lesson

Alyce at Kit & Clowder was gracious during the holidays and provided a freebie class for those who belong to the Facebook group called Mindful Me.  The premise is about art therapy and allowing creativity.  She put together an image on a canvas so that this can be hung within sight of your craft room as a reminder to give yourself permission to create.

I had a little trouble with my ink running when I applied the gel medium but overall I’m happy with the piece.

Creative Jump Start 2016 – Day 1

This post is for those who have the artistic bug.  A few years ago I found Creative Jump Start by Nathalie Kalbach and each January she does a 30 day lesson on jumpstarting your creativity.  This year the inspiration is master artists and the first week is focused on Henri Matisse. Now I am no nothing about art history, but I do like to play around with paint.  Especially as a form of relaxation and creative play.

Here is my Day 1 Art Journal Page inspired by Rae Missingman who taught this lesson on adding multiple layers of paint using Matisse’s color inspirations.  The paints are by Dina Wakley.  I also used Molotow Acrylic Paint Markers and Liquitex Fluid Inks.
