Playing with Paint

So here we are, the final week.. as like many of you I'm sure, I still don't find myself finished.. nearly though.

This week was a bit different than my vibrant colors I normally post. This week I played with paper and paint(and a couple packing tape transfers) and I have become obsessed with circles..

I throughly enjoyed making a slightly larger mess this week. But that is all thanks to my brand new craft studio!

Yes - this process and having all of the support of my fellow wreckers, inspired me (along with the sweet assistance and nudging from my boyfriend), to create a space dedicated to my creative self.

It has been a long time since I have felt this creative and open to new ideas and just letting things flow...

I thank you, Fellow Wreck Stars, for your open hearts and wonderful selves.. I wish all of you the best and may your creative journey be filled with surprises and love..

A special thankyou to Jamie for having this awesome online world and bookclub, I look forward to what you have in store for us next..

As to what I have taken away from this experience.. My creative self is starting to awaken like a butterfly emerging from it's cacoon.

I'm ready to fly.

Quick sketch of Italy image. I hope to go there one day.
