Winner & Play!
This is my REACH page from last week. I love everything about it.
I love the background colors, the gorgeous blues and golds and purples. It' so funny because I never planned it this way...it just happened.
That is how I create best...when I don't go into it with any kind of expectation...I just start putting stuff on paper. It's like magic when I get something I truly love.
These stars represent "reaching to the sky" to me. It was the perfect spot to put this silly photo of me from last summer.
If you look closely....
I wanted to remind myself that at the time I made this page I DO have confidence in me!
The journaling spot in the middle lists everything I am reaching for in my life. These two pages were a blast to create...everything just came easy.
But then as I began working on my wheels from our last assignment...well...those didn't turn out anything like I had planned. Oh, I LOVE the journaling on them...the steps I need to take to make my dreams real. But....the art part of them?
Soooo....I won't be showing them here. I know I want to do something I can look at daily so I am redoing. And that's okay. Isn't that what art is all about? Growing and trying new things?
Sorta like this new hair-do of mine. I am still not certain I like it.....
But I did want a change....so last week I reached down deep and just took the plunge.
It is taking time to style it the way I envision....
Enough of that....LOL. We have another assignment and we have a WINNER from Week 2!!
The Winner is....
Congratulations! Please email me your addy:) firstname.lastname@example.org
On to Week 3 Assignment #2:
So you created your Creative Dreams Wheel and thought about small steps/micromovements you can take to make your dreams a reality. Didn't you find this a "freeing" exercise? I know I did. Whenever I get my thoughts and ideas down on paper...it opens up my mind and all of a sudden I can think more clearly. It's almost like the weight of self-doubt vanishes when you have written a plan on how you can make that dream come true.
It's time to let go once again this weekend. Let's get unstuck...I believe it's one of the best times to think about my dreams. When I'm in the flow of creating it allows my mind to wander...
During my studio time yesterday I realized I am putting waaaay to much thought into my pages. So much that it's stressing me out. I found myself frozen as I looked at the white, blank pages.
This weekend I want you to play in your journals. Take your dreams, a favorite quote, a new technique you have been wanting to try, anything to help you get unstuck!! And hey, even if you're not stuck like me...this will give you a chance to grow and learn:)
This quote hangs on my office wall...
"Not everything you create will be a masterpiece, but you get out there and you try and sometimes it really happens. The other times you're just stretching your soul." Maya Andgelou
