Hello! Good Morning – Happy Saturday! I’m sure you have a ton of stuff to get done today. Me too, but I wanted to post a little project first. I made this little card for my Mom’s birthday, and mailed it with a blue bird necklace and a big ole blue bird candle. I oftentimes end up with themes running through my gifts, I don’t know why, it just works out that way.
Anyhow, the card is for Mom, but the process of painting a face and finding bits for a page are quite therapeutic for me, and I highly recommend it for all of you! Even if you don’t feel creative, just try it! Don’t think there’s a right or wrong way, and remember that you’re not being graded and no one ever has to see it, but do try.
Some people have knitting as a creative outlet, but every stitch must be perfect. Some people have an ear for music. The rest of us can use glitter and ticket stubs, and crayons, and whatever we find between the couch cushions!
Follow along and make your own. If you don’t have card stock or an art journal, just use a cereal box.
I have also added a new ART JOURNAL tab at the top of this page.
