Art, Heart, and Healing, week#1


One of the many projects/workshops that I am involved in the moment is the Art, Heart, and Healing workshop being sponsored for free by the whimsical Tam. If you're looking for some creative fun or something to get your juices flowing, check it out. You'll be glad you did!

The above journal pages are from week #1, and I won't go into too much about how they came about because you'll find out in the workshop. But I do have to say that there is so much power in facing your inner critics and negative self talk and then letting them go and using your hands and your heart to create over them. Creativity is a powerful thing...much more powerful than a tenacious little gremlin telling you, YOU CAN'T DO THAT! (or any of the other nonsense they tend to spew)

And besides all of the inner work, this was just fun! Not only did this exercise help me get over not wanting to do "faces" but also it helped me work on some background techniques and stamping techniques, not to mention the love of the brayer!  I learned something else....It's all in the DOING.  Doesn't really matter what the END is. It's the DOING!

Cheers, Everyone!
