It's really an honor to be asked to participate in a blog hop and I really couldn't pass up the opportunity create more art and challenge myself even more.
So - Welcome to the kick off of the Flip-Pal™ Mobile Scanner Blog Hop! It's the first of 5 Fabulous weeks of artwork by 5 fabulous designers in the industry!!! Woot Woot!!!
It's a new year and personally, I couldn't be happier to see 2010 go ....and 2011 arrive.
2010 was a year of extreme challenges personally and to share a inner bit of myself....a bit of depression too. When you "want" to create with all your soul...but your heart is hurting...it's a very difficult thing....
I created this piece towards the end of 2010, when the year was coming to a close. I decided that this wasn't the way I wanted to live...I did not want to be depressed any longer and so I began writing....at first, random thoughts....and then random paragraphs....and then I sat down with a canvas......
And I glued....and glued....and glued......with my fingers mind you...no paint brush for me...I decopauged recycled newspaper onto the canvas....and stepped back to reflect......then I added layers of paint...and layers of glitter and whatever my creative soul wanted at that particular time I added....and I let go of negative thoughts...I wrote them outta my life.... and just like that the layers of happiness and creativity began to unfold....
I thought "inspiring" thoughts......and I began to feel my sadness being lifted and a new person inside begin to soar.....and I thought...wow! You really have amazed yourself...(yep..sometimes you just have to be your own cheerleader...it's okay..toot your horn!)...I didnt know I had any of this art in me......
I used the Flip-Pal(TM) scanner to digitize this canvas which is 12x 24. I love love love how easy it is to now capture my wall art and rearrange to make other great art!! It's so versatile.
Next, I arranged the image in photoshop and created my very own personalized iPhone skin! How cool is that???
For a limited time, you can get this skin for your Iphone. I'll ship it free! Why not start your year on an inspiring note and remind yourself when you see this skin, that you can do ANYTHING you set your mind to accomplish!?!?!
