"BLOOM" Collage 1/2013

What fun it is to be learning collage techniques.  Christy Tomlinson has some inspiring tutorials on Youtube that have been so helpful for me.
Here is my 2nd collage which I named "BLOOM".  At this time in my life I feel God's radiant "sonshine" warming my heart and life in such an intimate reality.  He brings about growth into my personal life that creates peace and a deep joy, happiness, heartfelt family ties, sweet friendships, memories to savor, and a sense that I am in FULL BLOOM!!!


"Be you…it's the best thing you can be."  What wonderful encouragement!!!  This rub-on was just the finishing touch that made me SMILE

Throughout the month of January I have had the exciting experience of learning from the talented mixed-media artists involved in Nathalie Kalbach's online Creative Jumpstart Summit 2013.  What FUN to learn about mixed media products that are new to me and how to use them in multiple ways.  It was just the boost I needed to creatively explore the use of papers, stencils, paints, water-soluble crayons, gesso, etc. in making journaling pages, paper crafting projects and collages.
What a perfect January distraction to enjoy with a hot cup o' tea while the temps have plummeted, winds have howled and what little snow we've had has swirled all around!
Tomorrow we flip the calendar to February…..
Sweet love and blessings to each of you……..~Sandie
