My New Mantra

I've adopted a new mantra. Play! I want to allow myself to be more playful with my art. I really feel that it will give me more freedom. Sometimes I feel like I try too hard and that I'm not enjoying the process like I should. So from now on I am going to play. Even if that means just taking a sheet of watercolor paper and the cheap craft paints and just slapping paint around. Just like I did here.

My hope is that after practicing this "playful" attitude for however long it takes, that my art will grow and I will grow along with it.

Here is my progress on my journal spread. I am getting closer to being done, but still have a little more to do yet.

I have finished my latest tote bag. This could be a purse, if you like larger purses. The day was perfect yesterday to take photos out on the deck, by my kitchen garden. I'm growing lettuce, basil and cilantro. That's all this year. Simple. And my favorites.

I've listed this bag in my Etsy shop with more photos and information.

Please have yourself a playful day!
