Howdy peoples!
My apartment is a disaster and of course, that's when I find my creative muse. I haven't painted for a while, but I was inspired to make this latest creation. Hope you enjoy :)



Don't listen to the negative comments from others or from yourself.
We all feel like fat little birds some days just walking around looking for purpose.
Just remember.........it's a mind shift...............you CAN fly!

I grew up with 3 older brothers and was quite content with my sibling situation in my childhood.
Then, my oldest brother got married and through the years his wife and I developed a close friendship.
But what's even more special, is that I realized she is the big sister I never had.

Karen,
through the years
you've been more than a friend
you've been my big sister.

thank you for not judging me and always staying by my side.


thank you for always looking out for me and not being a selfish friend. I like the balance we have and

So, the first challenge on Marit's blog is, "fear of the blank page", and what we can do about it. Out of the choices she offered, I chose the paper scrap route. I basically followed her tutorial with a few additions. 

First, she suggest to take paper scraps and glue them together like a puzzle piece:

Next, cover them with white gesso. I did that, and also added some washi tape.


The next step is to add some color with either ink or water color crayons. I used a green spray ink, but ended up not liking it, so I wiped …
