Love is the answer....

Welcome back!  :)

Let me just say that yesterday was one of the most creative, love filled, days I've had in a long time.  It was decided late Friday night that our wonderful community was going to join together and create a wonderful day focusing on LOVE and PINK.  We decided that an impromptu Ustream-a-thon was in order.  A Flickr group was also created called Lovingkindness.

Here is what I created very early in the morning while chatting on Skype with a beautiful friend:




After all the drama I needed to focus on love rather than hate, I chose the title "Live and let live" because it speaks perfectly to what I need to focus on.  My life, my art, and the wonderful positive people I chose to surround myself with.  The flowers on this page are actually a scrapbook paper that I cut out.  Lots of layers including a few stencils... the empty box on the left is waiting for journaling.

The scrapbook papers inspired me to create a second page in my new Moleskine (yes, I know some of you are rolling your eyes at me, I DID buy another one).  I started out pretty similar to the spread above, but this time I drew the flower at the bottom.  This is a work in process page, I will be painting the flower today.


After watching many wonderful artists (I will list below) it was my turn to end the amazing day with my regular show.  As it is approaching February I chose to work on my monthly word of intent altered tag.  You can watch the recording HERE.  It is not finished yet, but I like where it's going.


I chose the word ARTFUL for February.  Now that I am in my art room and almost fully healed I want to focus on creating art this month.  I was going to use the word create, but artful seemed more fitting.  I was successful with my January word of intent, NOW, and I look forward to a wonderful month of creating.

This past Wednesday I also had a wonderful show.  I used colours and magazine images and created this WIP.

Yesterday, I even worked on a pink "Love is the Answer page." And that is quite an accomplishment since I am not a pink person at all. No Drama for me! Thanx Paula, looking forward to today for more Love!
