Lovely Workshop - The Art of Wild Abandonment

my new art journal cover
this week i had a blast with this new workshop, The Art of Wild Abandontment....by Janelle Jacobsen, hosted by Christy Tomlinson, these two girls are just the sweetest love love them! not so sure but i think you can still sign up for the class....!



have to say this girl Junelle is a lovely woman, so inspiring, sweet, makes me giggle to hear her talk, and she gives us this sweet commands in a mommy like sound that really make you get up stop watching and get your supplies out to work along with her...

is funny because i am not use to making the same projects as the teacher do, i like to make up my own, often times causing me to not learn the tecniques, so this time i decided to create kind of the same projects, and work along with her...

for more about Junelle, visit her blog here: Junelle Jacobsen ~ jj a girl smitten with God

for more about sweet Christy, visit her blog here: Christy Tomlinson



bellow are some pictures of what i have been doing, i think im developing a love affair with watercolors, but im not good at it, so learning curve for sure but loving it...








photos were taken with my iphone camera and i use pixlromatic to add the borders...fun! even if not the best ...! you should try it!





happy saturday

Dont Give Up!


do you ever have those days? the days that you just feel like ah!! why am i doing this? x, y, z, fill in your own blank___________________! i do, many times actually! last night i just felt overwhelmed, so many ideas but no creativity, I was in my studio trying....and nothing was coming out of me....and all of the sudden i got this feeling, this voice, saying;  "everything is possible girl" believe....! in fact that little piece of clay laying in the trash can become something beautiful ...

and then i did it!! this little doll so small barely 2 inches the sweet little thing, and it just dawn on me like the sunset when is barely clearing the sky, or the moon in a shiny night, i am a child of God, and with him everything is possible. 

i am his child, i am his little doll in the palm of his hands....he is always with me, and always with you, fear not....dont give up on your dreams!
