Go Girl is a piece created from magazine pages messed together to tell a story.

The Story:  When you’re at the crossroads, work it girl. Find where you are strong and be bold. You are a 10. Exercise your options, endure till the end. Perfect summary by Barbara S.

Words of Power

Words are powerful things. They bring things into being. Since words are creators, it’s important that we choose them carefully.

For my recent project, I focused on words that inspire and motivate me. Love. Power. Beauty. Happy. Innovation.

This is a mixed media piece. I’m blended together selected words and pictures with my painting. The end result is this powerful piece of art.  I think it will keep me inspired to live my best life!

A gelli plate is a cool tool to make beautiful art prints. The best thing about it is you can make one yourself!

On Pinterest I found a pin to someone’s blog that shows you how to make it. It was easy to do and just takes a few ingredients. You can find it here gesso-dragon. blogspot.com for the full post that will show you how to do your own.

Here’s a picture of some of the art I made with my gelli plate. I also did a live Facebook video showing how I used the plate to make this print. I think I’ll be using Facebook live more often, so make sure to follow me there for more cool demos!

The Inner Critic

The inner critic is the person inside of  you who tells you negative things about you. I call her the mean girl..

So today as part of my Life Book exercise I sat down and had a talk with her. We talked about my art and what she thought people were saying about it.

Jpeg

I heard all that she said, but she’s just a negative feeling. so I painted over her words. What does she know anyway????

 

Jpeg

If I listen to my heart I can create something beautiful. so I worked at it and let my inner child take over

we had a awesome time playing and layering paints. When you silence the voice that says you can’t. You can emerge
