Don’t you love it when something comes together so fast? Not every piece does, but this one did!
It was super simple and I used my favorite go-to techniques. I love how using vintage papers can create the story that you want for your artwork. And then stenciling on tissue paper adds just the right interest.
From start to finish this took me about 30 minutes!
I created this in complete exhaustion before heading out of town for my father in laws funeral. In the middle of a workshop launch and also in one of the busiest sales week my business has ever had. I wasn’t sure I was gonna get it done, but I powered through and so glad that I did because I love it and the message of this piece just came pouring out of me.
I really believe that you, I, we, were created to fly. That we are given gifts that we can use to change our lives and the lives around us.
But flying doesn’t just happen, it takes work, courage and a little chutzpah to step out. It takes desire and passion. It takes going the extra mile even when you’re exhausted.
I don’t mean that you sacrifice yourself, health and loved ones to fly (as I’m writing this I’m laying in bed catching my breath and getting some rest). But what I do mean is that you work as hard as you can to go after your wings and then rest, and then you get up and go again because flying takes sacrifice (the good kind). It’s a lot a work, but oh the reward is so worth it.
Can you feel the wind in your wings? Oh, my love, you were born to fly! It’s time to jump!

EARLY BIRD PRICING CONTINUES FOR ANOTHER WEEK ON MY NEW WORKSHOP!
Have you ever stared at a blank page or canvas wondering what the heck should I do?
Or have wasted time searching for inspiration? Oh, my, gosh! I know I have! There’s nothing worse than when you want to get creative, but you feel like you’ve got nothin! No ideas, no goal, no inspiration. Welp, I’m gonna help you get past that!
I’m so excited about this workshop because I share for the first time how I get out of my creative ruts. I have developed a practice that works for me every. single. time. That sparks my imagination, gets my fingers in the paint and gets me in the flow! In this workshop, we dive into my secret sauce for getting the mojo flowing, and how to create quickly by thinking only about the next step….to get the most out of your time.
I will guide you, in gathering all our elements together, preparing our journals with speed, creating grungy Gelli prints and building amazing texture, all in an unconventional way, that I know will light the fire in your soul!
Oh, and did I mention that I help take the fear out of starting something new or working through your projects? It’s all part of the system that I use that I can’t wait to share with you.
We’ll pull it all together to create 6 beautiful abstract projects in our journals and on canvas. Even going big on a 16 x20
YOU CAN GET ALL THE DETAILS ……HERE…
Be inspired, create and know that you are loved!
