Gratitude's and Celebration Journal - New Pages

For the next few days I will be bringing you up to speed with some of the art work that I have been busy completing.  I had promised myself that I would not sit on too many unfinished pieces but make an effort to push through and get them done.  Some have been paintings that I have been inspired to do, others have been work that I am doing in my Gratitude's and celebration journal.  

If you see any that you would like to purchase click on the link for my Society 6 site and you will be able to either buy the original in some cases or a print.  I have also been toying with opening up an Etsy store, but that needs some more thought.

These pages are from my Gratitude's and Celebration Journal that I do every week, Click on the image to be taken to the post, enjoy!

New Art - Art and Creative pursuit

Here is some art that is mostly from my gratitude and celebration journal.  I work in it once a week writing about the things that I am grateful for and create a painting, or something that expresses how I am feeling.  I think that it is important that we regularly to take time and stop to think what things that particular week have impacted on our lives and what we are grateful for.

Honoring your story - Mixed media on card

 I don't normally draw guys, but lately a few have been gracing my studio, wanting their story to be told.  

Stories that come from the heart that tell of their journey, their experiences

Wanting to be heard, to share and to shine

Hopes and dreams for tomorrow, and excitement for today

Creating Change

I have been playing around with the Gelli Plate which you can purchase at Amazon, you can also see how I made my own and use it HERE to create  backgrounds.  I used my prints from the plate and created some paintings, and here are a couple that I did recently.  

 The Gelli Plates allow you to create lovely color combinations on your surface.  These two paintings were done on watercolor paper.
Stay blessed!
