Live your story book cover

I was thinking about the bookcover for Live Your Love Story. Why did I change this fun blue book cover for plain white with blue lettering? These hearts gave me an idea. for today’s project.

Redo this note,.

Create a colorful background. Use a paper roll, cup or cookie cutter to stamp with. Cookie cutters would be great,

Not as I a planned. I stamped. I watercolored. Used my brayer for the first time. The brayer gave me a beautiful old wall vibe. I am definitely going to keep using the brayer to blend color. Wait this is like the make project. The beauty of this project is that you don’t know what will happen untill you finish.

Not sure about the lettering. I prefer sporadic writing. The problem is I don’t trust my writing. What if I make a mistake? I will practice tomorrow.

Do I have one more idea? Always!

Oh wow, even more of an old wall vibe. Yes I want to paint one of these someplace. monotone blues?

Ok tomorrow will take a look at Different Is Beautiful.

Happy Sunday!

Gave these flowers a makeover.

Painting over acrylic with watercolor is great. The next time you buy a paint brush save the plastic bristles protector. You could use a straw too.

I have some cool bookcover projects coming this week and a new notebook journal. If you like this flower then you will love all of the other flowers I am putting in the book. I’ll be taking a few photos of all of my work to celebrate this project.

New Circle Flower Journal

What a week! I have made progress. I want to say thanks for reading and subscribing. Welcome to the new followers. Cratively Hue is growing. I love it. If you have any art you’d like to share please find me on Instagram at @creatively.hue. I love learning what other artists are doing.

On Sunday I’ll be starting the book cover details and sharing the first bookcover project. Oh, April 15 was World Art Day! Earth Day is coming up! The layout for the book is finally looking good. Ok I need a break from all this screen time. Tommorw I’ll continue the editing.

Have a great weekend. Go for a walk. See what catches your eye. Fall in love with the moon and stars. Make art.

It’s the pink and peach tones…

that are blooming around my neighborhood. I like these better than the first edition. A little more space and perhaps another leaf. I have to write the words too. Words. Designing the layout is hard. I am glad I am learning.

To motivate me I am publishing a notebook. I just need to hit that publish button to motivate me. What a great idea to run through the process. Wait that could be the first book cover idea to share.

The Greatest Tool…

is you. James Victorie speaks of it as the you that demands to be heard, maybe not the you you carry around every day but you. Deepak Chopra says it’s the you, the creative curious lovable self you were born with. It is in that place where your best work happens. It is there where you decide to paint with a wheel, spray can or a straw.

These collage flowers are getting a makeover. Ok time to paint!

Just making really works

The hope the excitement and the flowers were about ready to be trashed. In fact I deleted the manuscript that I thought was close to being finished. Oh but last night Deepak Chopra’s believing can lead to reality gave me the rerouting I needed. Sure I needed to alter course and didn’t realize what or how until today. I started from the basic manuscript and just started writing. It was the words. It was the feeling in my heart. Then as I was talking and writing I made the connection. Total turn around..

I did plan to work on book covers this week but I should just paint. Ramadan started today. I want to learn about about this celebration. I love people and cultures all over the world. The world is my family.

because I need to know. I am confused about the layout and that has me second guessing my work. Just because you work on 100 ideas doesn’t mean you’ll have 100 good ideas. Most of my flowers are ok I am going back and forth figuring out how to incorporate all of the flowers. Not sure I want to. It’s time to go find how-to videos and keep working.

Circles Make Good Flowers

Shapes are fun. Circles are easy to draw. No they don’t have to be perfect. Draw them with your left hand in various sizes. The choice is yours.

I leave you with an inspiring quote.
