I recently took a free workshop by Carolyn Dube called "Permission to Play". It is all about letting yourself play with your supplies without worrying about the results. Play is vital for keeping your creativity going, coming up with new ideas, and keeping it fun and not just work. I have slowly been working on two journals, one larger and one smaller. They both have cardboard as the base and then I built from there. I added collage, paint, stamping, stencils, ink sprays, and drips. Now I'm starting to add marks, words, and other elements to make these pages have meaning. I'll show you some of what I have done so far.
I'll share more as I work on more of the pages. In the meantime how do you play creatively and what uplifts your spirits?

I have a loving husband who thinks I'm a bit crazy to be so obsessed with art. I am a mother of five children from ages 21 to 5. I spend most of my time mothering and keeping house. In my free time I like to play with textiles, art journaling and painting. I have a degree in textile and apparel studies with a design focus. Right now I am more interested in fiber arts than apparel design, but I don't know where my journey will take me.
