i love my artsy life. i love seeing beauty in every thing and finding inspiration everywhere. i love that art fills my every day and every evening. Here's a look at some of the artsy things that are filling up my life right at this moment.
These two magazines are so very inspiring and every time i start reading them i really want to create. Oh my gosh Uppercase this time is so beautiful. i love black and white and it is filled to the brim with stunning designs. Flow has stunning graphics but the stories, oh the stories are so inspiring. They free up my mind and make it go places i didn't know it could go. Plus it always has extra little items like colorful tags that put a smile on my face.
If you haven't noticed, i am really into my gelli arts printing plate lately. it's a little slice of gelatinous heaven that begs me for paint and pattern. The above little sneak is part of a collage i have been working on lately. i had fun tearing, ripping, and cutting the prints into pieces and layering them together with more paint.
Cocoa Daisy kits are little brown boxes filled with color and inspiration. They bring a smile to my face...literally. i am especially in love with this "Blue Ridge" October kit. Although i will probably say the same thing when November's "Weathervane" arrives on my doorstep.
i cannot believe i let Julie suck me into Project Life. Confession: i totally love it and find it addicting. Confession: i still overthink it a bit. However i do find those little pockets of madness and life inspiring. They are forcing me to create in whole new ways, an unexpected journey i just love.
The not so inspiring but wants to be studio. It is in desparate need of tidying deep cleaning. i started on it a couple weekends ago but the task is daunting. i know in my mind it's because i want to purge, organize, and clean at the same time. i really should stick to one task and not let it overwhelmed me. i called in for back up; Alexi will be joining me this weekend to whip this room into shape. And if anyone knows how to crack the whip, it's her. Hmmm i wonder where she gets it from?
Art Life Lately also includes RPD Design Team applications. i am awed and so very giddy at the number of incredible submissions i have received. Today's the last day i am taking applications. For more details, see this post.
