My Continued Creativity Journey

 I am making a Santos Doll instructed by Jen Rizzo in Jeanne Oliver's on line class.  I'm going to move forward, I promise!

I remember now how much I loved drawing in high school.  I have always journaled and have now learned some new techniques to make them beautiful.  The 4 week class is over but we have until the end of March to rewatch and do the projects.  I think I will start over and repeat my favorites!

 This is my sketch of me as a little girl at Easter time, my mom always pin curled my hair and dressed me so pretty.  I loved my purse, hat, gloves and black shoes.  Of course the dress always had cremlins!

 I haven't put the words on yet but it is titled LETTING GO.  My mantra this past year has been "Let go, Let GOD", everytime I stressed or things went wrong, I would repeat this.  We all have things we don't let go of, don't we?

 From France, the dealer has a home there, I tried not to hate her so I bought this!!  Can't you see this holding test tubes of flowers

 An old sterilizer, thankful we didn't use this in our office

 A wire mannequin

Don't I wish this was in my house, the whole thing, it is so my style.

 La Mannequin
 La femme, I still am looking for the words to put on her

 My little grandsons who are the best of friends

I hope your week is going great, much love, Di

  3. Very nice - I have to do some of that collaging type artwork. I think it really aids you in determining what your passions are. Anything that helps to reconnect to your childhood also - that helps fuel the crative fires.
