The courage to do what you love

Sometimes it takes courage to do what you love. SANY1203 Maybe we are afraid that we will not be good enough or just frustrate ourselves and not enjoy the process. These are battles that we unfortunately place on ourselves and only we can take these barriers down and throw them away.

When we say to ourselves that enough is enough and take that step forward, it may begin with trepidation and fear, but then end up with joy, freedom and the curiosity as to why we did not do this earlier in its place.

What would you love to do?:

  • take a few days away… just for you (and maybe a friend or two)
  • A weekend get-a-way from the everyday!
  • use assemblage to create your very own creepy misfit toy
  • learn the vastly growing trend of art journaling
  • create a warm and loved filled painted scroll to decorate your home
  • create a 3D mixed media enigma
  • remake your favorite little bottle into something completely demented and vial
  • adorn your journal cover to reflect the ‘eye of the beholder’. (Mine, your Host, would be a girl looking back at me… of course…lol. Have you seen my art? It’s all glitzy gal girls!)
  • stay up late with some good friends and maybe a glass of wine or two!

Sometimes along our personal journey we get creatively stuck and need a jump start to recharge our batteries or just need to step aside from our normal everyday lives. Have time to breathe, laugh, make friends and take a leap of faith in ourselves.

Unveiling some SWEET TREATS for all you ART JOURNAL JUNKIES !

#13:  WORKSHOP “Creativity, Inspiration & Journaling Kick Start”

with Megan Anderson

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I love writing, I love the idea of writing, I love pens and pencils, crisp white paper and the crackle as I open up a brand new journal…. but sometimes I find journalling and writing, heck even creating, daunting and over whelming. How to start? What to write? What to draw? Where or where is my inspiration?

These cards can help inspire, prompt, push, spark and to document the artistic voyage . They can be shared, traded, displayed or kept intimate and private, like a personal tarot deck taking you and your art in new directions.

 Creativity cards can be used to prompt any type of creative process, from journalling to drawing , painting and anything in between.

 We will start with a base deck of cards and begin the process of creating a highly personal deck (think imagery and quotes not deep dark secrets…phew). We will look at how to begin developing these decks so that you can continue to build and develop your deck and draw on it in the future.

 In this class I also encourage participants to trade a few cards with others in the class…so be prepared (and remember I said encourage). This can really help to push one out of their comfort zone and further push your art in new directions.

A jump start kit will be included with this class. Also the base for your deck.

 We will also have a “share” table set up in class. Feel free to add to take to or from it.

 Supply Kit Fee: $5

#14: WORKSHOP“Mythical ‘Eye’ See You Journal” with Megan Anderson

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

Mythical creatures have always intrigued me. Secretly, I always wanted a pet dragon. He (yes, mine is a he) would look over me, urge me on as I journeyed through the creative process and be the guardian of my journaled thoughts and secrets. He would help inspire my imagination and he and his travels would be my muse. I had a little trouble finding a dragon to fit the bill so, so I decided to create one.

Whatever or whomever your mythical beast, creature or muse may be, together we will bring yours to life.

Create a unique relief style journal cover using eyes, clay, paint, ephemera and a wee bit of whimsy.

Some of the techniques we will cover: design & execution of design, use of apoxie clay, problem shooting to attach objects to journal cover, use of Kroma crackle, general glazing techniques and paint techniques to create depth and impact.

Interference and metallic colors. Optional gold leafing.
