It's Not Messy Enough

I bought Dina Wakely's new book called Art Journal Courage.
I love Dina Wakely's art and decided to try something out of the book.
The one thing I noticed is that I stiffened up.
I can be quite messy in my art but I find doing something from a book I lose it.
This piece will be getting a make over.
I thought I would show you what it looks like before I started.

I haven't decided how I'm going to change it yet.
It may sit for a while before I touch it again.

I love the book and will try other projects in the book.

What are your favorite art books?
Let me know. 
I'm always looking for more. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Absolutely Funky - TCW Balzer Bits - Burlap

 I keep forgetting I have them.
So I took them out my drawer and now leave them on my table.
This one is perfect to add some additional texture to my tag.

Love all the texture? I adore it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Art Journal Page: White Space

One of the things that I love about art journaling is it is relaxing.
I have many journals but I keep four small ones on my table at all times.
Small journals are just easier for me.
Lets face it a small blank page is better than a larger one.
One journal I use for traveling but sometimes I reach for it. 
I add left over paint, paper, wet stencils, etc. to build up pages for use later.
This page is one of those pages.
I decided it didn't need to fill the page.
The more I leave white space the more I love it.
The images were already there I just added watercolors
and one little word.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Painting: Untitled - A Collaborative Painting

This painting is a little dark but it has a pop of pink.
I used the Number stencil from The Crafter's Workshop.

This painting was a collaborative painting I created with my god-daughter.
It looked nothing like this before I covered the whole thing in grey, black and pink.
Every time we do anything collaborative we both forget to take pictures during the process.
We feed off each other's creative energy and it just happens.

This one is the other collaborative piece.
I love the colors.

Have you tried collaborating with someone?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Know It's Enough

Know Who You Are
And Know It's Enough

This was started a long time ago.
I added the Mini Fancy Feather stencil to it to finish it.
