Spontaneous Scrappy/Arty trip to Warrnambool = HAPPY!!!

All the stars were aligned………..

Charm from Charm’s Creations and I drove to Warrnambool to catch up with scrappy friends meeting at the lovely Ebony Van der Starre’s home on Friday afternoon (yesterday)….

Marelle made yummy bolognaise for dinner, while we scrapped, painted, glued and chatted…….. Ebony had a class of 2 layouts… and she is a very talented teacher!!!!

I ‘played around’ making backgrounds in my journals and a bit of doodling as I didn’t have anything planned at such short notice.

I also have some VERY SPECIAL secret squirrel news….. and I’m sorry I can’t share just yet… so you’ll just have to wait.. Winking smile

Charm and I had the best conversation on the drive back home, with ideas and plans for this year…. it’s going to be a BIGGY!!!!!

I’ve already unpacked my bags from the trip, and ready to get my ART ON!!!!!!!!!! lol………

Thank you girls for a lovely afternoon/evening and it was so good to finally meet Ebony Van Der Starre, Leah Cameron and her sister (Sad smile forgot her name … and I like their style !!), Sophie Koschman, Jo Koschman, IRL, and to catch up with the sweet Marelle Jackman again…..

We WILL make it more often for sure…..{{hugs}}

START THE ART!!!!

Since having a stall at the local library on Sunday, I have been inspired to go back to the roots……… collage, paint, stamping, rub ons………. and I having fun!!!!

I have joined a free workshop, JUMP START 2012, by Nathalie Kalbach… and to ‘warm up’  for the January 123 Challenge 2012, I collaged in an old RD book……..(more inspiration from Amy McDonald of flutterbye)

in one of my Art Journals

11012012976

here is my January 123 Challenge 2012 entry

Criteria; silver, word JOY, and splats….. I collaged print from an old RD book, painted over with red acrylic and scraped silver acrylic with an old credit card …… made my own stars and word Joy from cardboard, painted them and added Kindyglitz

10012012974

I added splats and the cute photo of my grandies I got for Christmas….. = FUN!!!

I am working on a couple commission canvases ATM…. here’s a sneak

1101201297911012012980

almost finished… and the second…….. collaged only……

11012012977-1

For some reason I haven’t yet started week 1 of Life Book 2012 …. I’ve been keeping up to date with the Facebook page and it is rather overwhelming and intimidating seeing the lovely Goddesses being created….. truly stunning!!!…. and

the  FREE, YES FREE……Strathmore Visual Online Workshop 1st class by Traci Bautista .. I WANT to start that REAL soon…. love her work!!!!!!!!!

I have a couple other workshops on the go too….. but I can do them at my own leisure… (even though I want to do EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW)…LOL… I am doing what I ENJOY right now, that’s all that matters….RIGHT?

ok, so… that’s it for now….…. and so I must START THE ART!!!!!

It’s amazing how inspired I am from having a stall….

at the MOUNT GAMBIER LIBRARY MARKET today!!!!!

I received some great feedback and lots of ideas… Winking smile

Although there were a few showers and wind, I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of people that come down to check out all the stalls….. and there was plenty of them!!!

There was wine, smallgoods, art & craft, (including scrapbooking, jewwllery, dolls etc), books, wine barrels (made into furniture, garden features, dog kennels), Limestone Sculptures…… just to name a few……

Here is RinRinKa Stall….

Video Overload!!!

My eyes are sore and I feel OVERWHELMED!!!!!!!!!…………. I have signed up for like…… 5-6 Online Workshops…. some I paid for, but most are FREE!!!…. and most of them have started or will start in the next few days!!!!…..I had a feeling I was taking on too much…. but I don’t want to MISS OUT ON ANYTHING!!!!!

Unfortunately I do HAVE TO earn an income to pay the bills, I work permanent Part Time (with UNGODLY 5am starts… and I AM NOT an early morning person, so that doesn’t help either)

I have downloaded and watched sooooo many inspiring, AWESOME workshops and now I don’t know WHERE TO START!!

*************

So instead of putting paint to paper/canvas/journal I have been cleaning out my emails……. literally 100’s and 100’s of them… telling me ‘join this’… ‘your next workshop starts’………. ‘comment updates’…… ‘specials’….. etc….. etc……etc.

I have ‘bitten the bullet’ so to speak and unsubscribed to many of them Sad smile……. because I can’t keep up!

I wanted to start this year more RELAXED, more IN TUNE, HAPPY and more FOCUSED!!!!……….. I have 2 journals/diaries and I haven’t made any entries!

So I am going to choose 1 (ONE) WORKSHOP I feel that will help me RELAX and RECHARGE…………… not sure which one yet.

 

I know I NEED A HOLIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!! SmileSmileSmile

 

or maybe I need to close my laptop LOL!!!!

 

So if you don’t see me on Facebook or lurking in online classes…..MAYBE I am actually MAKING ART!!!!!!

What a ride it has been…….

the past month!…. Christmas is over and now it is the 1st day of January 2012!!!!!!!!!! It’s darn hot here too today, so I decided to stay inside……

I have started to download the PDFs and videos from LIFE BOOK 2012 and the buzz in the Group is truly AWESOME!!!

01012012950

So many women and men wanting/needing to start the new year in a place of learning and nurturing….. Tam has put a lot of effort and love into this workshop along with 14 other very talented artists…. I KNOW it’s going to be a year of ups and downs, but I know I can share them with my art and friends who feel likewise…..

I have signed up for several other workshops, some a few days and some a few weeks, and I will share them with you as we go…..

I really hope I haven’t bitten off more than I can chew…..(oh there’s another story…. I had a tooth pulled 4days ago Sad smile)……. with all these workshops and next weekend is the Mount Gambier Library Market, where I will be exhibiting all my canvases….. this should be awesome, really looking forward to it…

I have spent a few days in between celebrating Christmas and New Year painting, collaging and glittering up a storm
