Do More of what makes you Happy (Soul Food)

Do More of what makes you Happy (Soul Food)

edit

The first page of my ”happy” journal was not half as disastrous as the Contemplating life journal…:))) I learnt my lessons well.

The internet has a number of projects with these little flowers that gave off this really happy, innocent, cheerful feeling. So I thought it was perfect for this page. The flowers are random cuts of scrapbooking paper and the leaves cut from old dictionary or magazine text. I love how the muted background really makes the flowers pop.

The flowers have become a bit of  favorite and I have since used them in my workshop projects and craft group tags with very pleasing results.

That wandering mind that often tries to understand why some of us wear our creativity on every fibre of our being yet others need for it to be almost wrenched out of them to believe they possess it!

This was a bit of a test run of some new Staz on colors I got as well as a new color theme and stamps.

My favorite part of this page is the little birdies in their art nest although I see how they blended into the background a bit and the sharpness of the image was lost. I’m always learning…!!

Memento Tags – Art Therapy

IMG_2623 In my pursuit of finding a new career I have been looking into a number of art and creativity related career avenues. I am oscillating between studying to be an art teacher at school, running my own creative arts and crafts school or qualifying as an art therapist. Over the last few months, I was part of an experiential group and my time there has further enhanced my desire to investigate art therapy as a profession. It was a wonderful way to connect with each other and these were some of the tags I made as mementos for the ladies in that group. Each of them is designed to express something unique about them or something revealed in our time spent together. IMG_2625 IMG_2626 IMG_2627 IMG_2628   XXX g
