Getting back into the Creative Groove
Good afternoon from a very chilly Michigan!
Yesterday was difficult as the boys had gone their separate ways and I found the house to be very quiet and empty after the whirlwind of activity with all of them being home. It was just me, the dog, and the cats. They were all catching up on their naps as they didn't get much in with the boys coming and going and teasing/playing with them.
Because my office is off the guest bedroom, I wasn't able to go there to create every morning and I truly missed that creative time alone.
I had a hard time getting my creative juices flowing yesterday. I hate being behind as I start feeling overwhelmed then get little accomplished. I decided to start with this week’s SOC challenge.
Color pallet this week is Raspberry & Tangerine with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Lemon. I had no idea where to start but I remembered reading to just lay down some color to get rid of the blank white paper so I sprayed some Dylusions ink spray in bubblegum pink and squeezed orange. I pulled some scrapbook papers and Golden fiber paste but I wanted something different for this collage. I opted for crumpled tissue paper instead. I just purchased a Martha Stewart vine paper punch and wanted to incorporate that and the photo I took of the pink phlox.
This is the layout I created in the Clown journal for Your Turn In My Art Journal:
