Dreams into Plans + art journaling Prompts, Ideas and Give away!

We're all battling the flu here....ugh! Dana was sick with a 102 fever and today...well..it feels like the start of it for me....let's hope not....

Often times in my artwork I take bits and pieces from other artwork I've made and re-purpose it into a new composition. It's a quick way to create a new piece if you are short on time, it's also a great arts and crafts project for kids to create a great piece of artwork.

Another crafts idea is to take photos of your artwork in stages.  Use these stages as a starting point for new works of art when you are in a pinch for time - just print them out and begin layering on top of them.



I set a timer for 30 minutes and played around with paints, stencils and created the back ground.  The butterfly girl is from a recent painting that I copied and cut out.

The quote was inspired by Christy Tomlinson and one of her artworks.  I thought it was so fitting. Don't let your can'ts get you down...and put a plan into action.

Here's an excerpt from the book Journal Bliss by Violette - I find it easiest to begin with a quote about what I'm feeling at that moment and then use colors and doodles to bring it to life.
