As the new year approaches, it is a good time for reflection and anticipation. I love to write down my goals for the new year because having them in writing keeps me focused. Otherwise I find myself floundering in a sea of ideas without any purpose. Here is to the list and NEW BEGINNINGS!!!!
In 2015 my focus is going to be on using supplies and ephemera I already have on hand. So many times a paint color, an image, a special button or clasp, texture tool or book of ideas finds its way into my studio only to be stashed away in a bin for future use. Well, the future is here and I plan on using up what I’ve got! Hopefully this will push me in new directions, out of my comfort zone, into the place where….the magic happens. This powerful concept of movement, from working on a journal page, to a canvas or even creating layers on a three dimensional object is a bit scary. I have been camped out in art journaling for several years now. In 2014 I created a couple of pieces for “Pikes Peak Busts”, an art show for increasing breast cancer awareness and raising funds for a local research foundation. Both pieces SOLD, so thankful, and the process pushed me into a magical place…out of my comfort zone. Looking for more of this in 2015, movement….from the journal page to canvas and beyond.
