Painting A Wish...

:: wish ::
wishfully thinking.
 Learn to become still. 
 To take your attention away from what you don't want... 
and all the emotional charge around it.
 Place your attention on what you wish to experience.
Make it so. 
make a wish.

Art play...

:: paper dresses ::
a day at my art table.
Not every day spent, has to be focused on creating something spectacular.
when playing with paper can be grand... just fold, tuck, and surprise!
then my imagination grew... this tiny crafted hanger was the result of it. 
( craft wire/28 gauge )
put the two together... and you have a delightful dress at play.
Be playful. Create.

:: abilities ::
The extent of your consciousness is limited only by your own abilities.
 You can consume yourself with more than you need...
or keep it simple and light as a feather.
Blow off the less important.
Value what you can not put a price tag on.
Embrace with your love the space around you and all that it contains. 
:: our abilities... simply amaze me ::

grab a snippet...

:: mini file folder :: 
Tiny file folders... 
endless possibilities. 
I created a templet and then lost all control... I had a blast! 
I even altered one of the mini file folders into a journal book, filled with scrap papers. 
a snippet... 
I think I'll take one, thank you!

My heart and yours...

:: stuffed paper bag heart ::
I hosted a ::LIVE:: chat 
with members of The Studio - a thriving artist community.
We made these "artsy" paper-bag  hearts together. 
Honestly, what could be better? 
Friends, love, and art.
This was a simple art project to do.
 It was not the simplicity that the group was focused on...
It was the fun of getting together and making art!
My feelings of excitement, love, and happiness are beyond words.
To be able to come "face to face" 
with some of the most wonderful artsy people ever...
My wish is... to meet all my Blog readers.
"the simplest things are often the truest."

paint with an understanding...

:: resonate ::
Obstacles are like wild animals.
They will bluff you if they can.
 If they see you are afraid of them...
they are liable to spring upon you.
if you look then square in the eye, they will slink out of sight. 

:: obstacles ::
best to look them squarely in the eye.

Stitched and bound together...

:: art journal card ::
a friendship straight from the heart
 "The miracle of friendship speaks from one heart to another, 
listens for unspoken needs, recognizes secret dreams, 
understands the silent things."

:: at the speed of life ::
It is not by muscle, speed, or physical dexterity 
that great things are achieved, but by reflection,force of character, and judgment.
This journal page was created using 
a photo taken by, artist Deb Combs.
I'sn't it awesome?!
Right when I saw this photo posted...
 I just had to ask for permission to use it in one of my art journal pages. 
This one is taken from her 356 photo challenge 2013.

Life. Enjoy. Live.
