Oh my goodness........it's March already!
I've been neglecting my blog of late but it's not for want..........I've just been doing other things.
So here is the deal...........you will no doubt find me mad as a hatter or that I've completely gone of my trolly or that I've just lost the plot. BUT I have completely changed my studio... A G A I N.
Now before you apply adjectives to me you must know this........or at least answer this if you have a studio/creative space. It HAS to feel good, it just HAS to. I have had so many variations in my studio it's bordering on crazy yet I have to say (I think I posted this before) it's a Goldilocks thing. You know it when you get there........that it's "just right"!
So when last I redid the studio I used all sorts of darker jewel tones, made the closet look like a theater of sorts and so on. I found when I was creating it wasn't as condusive to inspiration and calm and light and airy as I wanted. You see I didn't go with my gut when I did it last time.......I allowed myself to be influenced by other things and it proved I should have gone with my original plan. Live and learn.
For example.....remember this cabinet I bought off Craigslist and had it packed with art supplies?
Well here it is now..............
CeCe Caldwell Chalk paint in Vintage White. It looks even better in person as I did it to look like it's paint is wearing.
Everything is now white (well 2 things aren't but all the rest is including all the walls) ................. I changed everything and removed a few pieces that were in here. I WILL be sharing photos but I still have a few things to do.
It now feels light and breezy and things are at easy reach. I am LOVING it and wish, as I said, I'd gone with my gut from the get go last year.
In the meantime I am in an Art Journal round robin with 5 other artist friends.....The Sisterhood of the Traveling Journal. We each created a journal, did a few pages and sent it on to be added to by the next person and so on and so on. When it finally comes back to me it will be filled with yummy goodness to treasure! I will be sharing each and every page when it finally comes back in a couple of months. Today or tomorrow I will be receiving the next journal to work on........
Let's see.....I have a mannequin bust I had bought at some salvage place and it was painted red. I've had it stored for quite a while (it was similar to the image below). Silly me didn't take a "before" of mine. Anyway, I decided to finally do something with it, and I was so pleased with the results. Now KNOW I loathe when people talk about things but show nothing........I do....it's frustrating. But I promise I will VERY soon!
All of this is mostly to let those who care why the needle on my blog has been stuck for so long.
I am hoping by weeks end to be able to post photos or I am thinking maybe a video.....a first for me!
P.S. I have had inquiries regarding Our World Our Art and it is my hope to announce, once and for all, a date for this event by weeks end. How does April 7-18 sound???? That should give those wanting to participate time to think about their post and create their giveaway!
