In today’s piece… I used very few items to create this…
there’s something about simplifying the process that makes it easier to create right now.
I created the papers for my leaves using acrylic high flow and acrylic ink and just this process was so good for my soul.
I even stenciled with the high flow…. oh the freedom! I loved it.
As I began pulling my ideas for what I wanted to create I had another quote or part of a quote in mind and it just didn’t feel right…. so I waited and wrote, and wrote some more about how I was feeling and what I needed in today.
In that journaling I wrote out “Today is a gift Shawn, find the joy in right now” and I knew…. that would be the words that moved me forward in my creative process.
I share more about it in the video.
Supplies used: 12 x12 mdf board, gesso, Lukas acrylic paint in teal and fern, carbon black acrylic, Golden high flow acrylic (permanent violet dark, green gold, quinacridone magenta, Daler & Rowney acrylic ink in sepia, Posca pen in black, charcoal pencil (soft)
This week my newest workshop “Journal Journey” came out.
I had originally planned to release this workshop later in the year but felt that with everything that’s going on in our nation, that maybe now was the time.
Journaling has always been a special time for me and now more than ever I need to find solace in those sacred pages. And maybe you do too.
Our journals are the place that we can let it all go, feel the things we’re feeling, say the words and just spill.
It’s a walkthrough 4 journal pages start to finish.
-break the blank page
-how color can represent feelings
-how letting go of perfection and embracing the messy page can lead us to the next layer
-how pattern can actually simplify
and so much more!
