Creating in Faith - Podcast Word for the Week - Optimistic

Join me on the podcast where the word for the week is Optimistic.  

When you think about the word Optimistic what do you think your approach is with regards to your own creative walk and how you feel about the work.  Sometimes we can hold an internal view about ourselves and not realize the impact that it is happening on the way that we do things.

Listen to the podcast below.

Word for the Week - Perceptive - Arts and Wellness Café

Welcome to this week, the word has been so far 'Perceptive' and it is great to think about how the word relates to our creativity.  When you think about what you do creatively how much of it would you say you get a sense that there is more to it than you yourself put in - in regards to effort?  Do things click, work out and often give you goosebumps or chills.  

It matters not if that is not the case for you at the moment, as there are areas of what you do that you just can't quite explain, and you don't need to (smile).

I started the week off with the podcast and you can listen to the episode HERE or below

In Arts and Wellness Café I continue the theme and you can watch the video HERE or below

I share some of the work that I have been doing in the studio along with some of my stitched pieces.

Weekly Art Journal Ideas - Composition Notebook Art Journal

 Composition Notebook Art Journal 

As part of the 52 Weeks of Art Journal Check out my Composition Notebook Art Journal video above.  

There is no excuse not to create, you don't need to wait for that really nice art journal, or do you need to save that art journal for 'best'.  You can get composition notebooks for under $5 and while the pages are thin, once you add paint or collage material you are good to go!

Mixed Media Art Journal Page


Loose Leaf Art Journal Page

What are you doing with all your background pages that you have sitting in a pile stacked somewhere? I get them out every now and again and see if I am inspired to create something on one that happens to catch my eye.

I had left this loose art journal page in one of my piles to complete for quite a while before coming back to it and I found it at a time where I just wanted to keep things simple and use some paint and just play with the time that I had.
I really enjoy creating and seeing the figure come to life and have a story to tell, and it is also great practice to keep your hand in creatively, always have something that you can do on a daily basis, you don't have to finish a piece all at once.

I hope that you decide to experiment and play!

Supplies used to create this piece:

Folk Art Paints -
Posca Pens, Black and white -
Water-soluble Charcoal crayon -
