Letting the Creativity Flow
As a way of keeping myself accountable, I’ve decided to create a weekly post on the different projects I worked on during the week. Making time to be creative is good for my soul and extremely beneficial in reducing stress.
So here it goes!
This week I dabbled in a few different mediums. I don’t claim to be an artist (so be gentle) but I love being creative.
For this project, I felt like making a collage. I started out by ripping pictures and phrases out of magazines. I didn’t put too much thought into it. Once I felt like I had enough images, I then started to gluing them onto a piece of poster board. I was very pleased at how it all came together. The messages are very inspiring and photos of nature are just beautiful.
I saw at a friend’s art studio that you can re-purpose books you longer want or need. I happen to have a novel that I no longer wanted so I decided to use that.
I started by painting the cover. I then glued on a piece of scrapbook paper and finished it with a inspirational message sticker.
I then glued 3 pages together to create a thicker more supportive medium and then proceeded to paint and draw whatever came to mind. Here are my creations:
There you have it…my creativity for the week. Let’s see what next week brings. I’m really itching to sew something!
