Return to Art

>> Saturday, June 5, 2010

I took the advice of Connie over at Dirty Footprints Studio and just:


Hahaha, lovely right?  Although I do use the computer a whole lot for work related stuff doing photoshop, I also get sucked into the whole Facebook vortex.  What do you do when you hear and see all those notifications popping up that comments were posted, messages sent, photos tagged?  Ah, just one little peek...turns into one whole hour of browsing...and peering into stuff friends and relatives have posted.  Then there is the browsing the forums, blogs, etc. etc.  Checking emails....the list goes on and on and on.  Oh my, where did the rest of the morning go? Anyone familiar with that scenario?

So yesterday, I took Connie's advice after browsing her blog and reading one of her posts.  No, I did not shut down the computer (is that considered cheating?) but I set it to the side, did nary a glance at Facebook, pulled out all my art materials...my journal...and sat and read through Kelly Rae's first flying lesson.  Then I started to create in my journal.

I still haven't answered the questions posed...but I got my art journal ready to write in (at least 2 pages to write in) and more in the works.

Here is what I've created so far:


How I love doing this! Thank you Connie for your suggestion :)  Paper, scissors, paint, glue, pens...how I love the whole creative process.

Oh my goodness, I LOOOOOOVVVEEEE these! And the post full-stop, but especially the "Taking Flight" one, that is just unbelievably cool.

Loving it, I'm following you now in my all-new-found-marvel Google Reader. So look forward to seeing and hearing more!

About This Blog

All about me, my musings, ramblings, fancies, quirks and dreams; the blessings in my life - the kids and their growing years; and my love for digital scrapbooking/design and graphic arts; and my eternal quest to keep learning something new each day and give back in my little way.

This blog used to be 3 blogs which I decided to merge together, my scrapping blog (Pandoras Box of Thought), the blog about my kids (Beyond the Four Walls) and my cooking/recipe blog (Cooking Mama) - all the old posts are still up but I've decided to just post everything in the future in one forum, with all the things I'm doing, I'd like to keep everything in one neat container :)
