Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
I've been lucky enough to have play time.
I've concentrated on my word for 2012 - Blossom.
I've expanded my creativity by making things I hadn't tried before.
Here's some photos of what I've created.

Here's my first She Art girl. I fell in love with the background. First I layered a piece of orange tissue paper on the canvas using Mod Podge. Then I added the blue paint, scrapping it with a credit card. I used bubble wrap and stamped the yellow and red. The doily is a stencil. It's raised up a bit because of the modeling paste. Love it. Next came the girl. At first I thought of using the same color scheme as the background for her dress. This is what I ended up with.

I've really enjoyed taking photos. I need to read about my camera and the different settings. I've always been the kind of person that if it gets too technical (and I focus on that) then I don't enjoy the process as much.
