Day 2 Inspiration

Day TWO of our 14 Day Creativity Challenge...and just for fun I'm playing along with "What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday", too. It's been a very long time since I've done that.

Here's what I started working on yesterday...



Honestly, it's been forever since I've pulled my art journal out to just journal. I look at them often but never create anything. Really love that color blue...don't you?


So, literally the day FLEW by! Before I knew it I was making dinner and doing dishes and I still hadn't made it to my studio.

Feeling a bit frazzled I decided to just show up in space and start making something with what was lying around on my table....


I grabbed a sticky note and jotted down the words "Sometimes you just gotta put some paint down!" Then I opened a bottle of my favorite blue, squirted a bit out and went for it.

I decided that when I create art...any art it gives me peace. Just being in my studio with no noise, no television blaring gives me  peace. Soooo....I just happened to have a PEACE stencil nearby and put that in the middle of my page. A few rub-ons and a butterfly later and it's shaping up quite nicely.


While I was there I wrote a few positive affirmations on sticky notes {this is part of my Body Restoration class}and mosied around my space, soaking up all the goodness. Man, I love that space:)


Here our a few Prompts for Day Two:

1. Finish that project you've been meaning to.
2. Create a valentine for someone special {it's not too early!}


Quote:

"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think.  Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.  ~A.A. Milne

I adore Kelly Rae Roberts' work...just so inspiring. Here is a link to a piece I pinned recently. I think you'll love it!

A few months ago I found Angie and her blog "Om2Art". Her art is sooo peaceful and sweet. Check her out for some sweet inspiration today.

  1. You are incredibly talented! PS - Love the Pooh quote.

    As for me, since I am not "visually" artistic, I decided to do a fantasy Valentine post - my idea of creating. Go check it out!

  2. Yesterday I worked on the computer making layouts for my scrapbooking. Never done this. It came out great. Today I will work on something with Valentines. Maybe not a card but something.
