More iPad art.

Hello! How’s your Thursday going? We’ve got a lovely rainy day here and I’m sitting in my office with a cup of tea and my favorite candle lit. Yum. Oh and I’m totally obsessed with this crazy soft blanket. It’s wrapped around me…even though it really isn’t all that cold. I’ve turned into a bit of a Linus with this throw – you will often see me dragging it from room to room so I can cuddle up with it. lol.

My husband thinks it’s bizarre and Grace keeps trying to steal it but I’m very protective of it.  Look…just get one and you’ll understand. I promise.

Anyway…I digress. I’m here to share three more creations I made on the iPad. Yes, I’m totally hooked on the creative fix this gives me. I used this process if you want to go back and read about how these were done.

” The Three Graces”

(Was feeling a little more edgy when I created this one… ;)

desire

“Hummingbird’s Nest”

you are beautiful

“Kindred”

Making these all cozy in my bed after a long day has proved to be relaxing and rewarding. Will this replace my traditional art processes? No, but when I’m short on time and energy (which seems like always) this helps me feel connected to my creative energy.  Try it out and let me know if you have questions. I’m here to help.

Happy New Year

Hello Friends! Happy New Year!

I hope your holidays were lovely. We had a fabulous time here. Lots of food, wine and laughs! A wonderful Christmas with everyone under one roof – ours. Having the space this year, to host the festivities, was a real treat!

Today, we took down the tree (boo!) and all the twinkling lights (I miss them the most). I really hate taking down the decorations. It always makes me a little sad…like unpacking after a beautiful vacation…there’s so much build up, so much excitement and then it’s all over so fast. ho hum.

On the up side, I know 2011 is going to be fantastic! I’ve got lots of ideas and inspiration and I’m truly excited to see where this New Year will take me.

Speaking of inspiration…over the break, Chris got me Photoshop Elements and I’ve been dabbling with digital collage…wow…can you say FUN!

Here are my first three attempts…

I am having a blast playing around with this new medium. So many possibilities!

What’s inspiring you right now? Got big plans for your New Year?

xo,
