These aren’t the REALLY ugly ones! 😲
Hello to You!
I’m so happy to see you here – lots of good stuff going on today: some creative play, ugly painting and a little journal goes to a new home.
Creative Boundaries, Exploration and Play
I’ve been starting to feel that my mixed media canvases are getting a little stale. Same set up, same process, same finish… Of course, that process was hard won to figure out and get it to a place where I liked what I was producing. Then, after a while, the formula sets in and it’s not as satisfying.
That’s when it’s time to do something different. Sometimes I make something completely different or work in a different medium. This time, I thought it was time to take a walk on the abstract side. Abstract paintings are probably my least favorite but it’s a boundary I’ve never really pushed. I’ll keep exploring this for a while and then, when I go back to the canvas, the sense of play and freedom will come with me.
Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner! – First Ever #CreativityExchange
We have our first #CreativityExhange recipient! This little chocolate themed junk journal and a mixed media medallion, both my own personal creations, have found a new home with Sue who shared her learning steps with me via private message.
That’s all there is to it! Do something creative – especially something a little past your comfort edge – share that you’ve done it and I’ll send you something I’ve made. It’s all about the co-creation. Read more about how it works here.
Then, reply to me and let me know what you’re creating. I’m looking forward to the creativity exchange with you!
Be a Beacon!
PS The #CreativityExchange – in a nutshell
- You choose what you create! It’s up to you but I’d love to see you pick something a little (or if you’re all in – a lot!) past your comfort zone.
- You only have to share it with me by email or you can share it more widely – totally up to you. You KEEP your thing – sharing electronically is enough.
- There is no cost or fee – this is a co-creation and collaboration.
- You have to BEGIN! I have lots of lovely creations here waiting to find you – just pick your creative project and get started.
