My Happy Place

Today I painted for the first tme in days! It has been a week, a certain vaccinne is to blame. I got out my paint. I painted some more tulips, heart shapes and orange tones. It felt so free. It felt so good. I know to the non- painter or creative it may seem weird but painitng, creating and flying through ideas is what I do. Oh and being able to form a career is my dream come true!

Still prefer the beauties I painted last week.

With the leftover paint, I painted tissue paper. Yes in honor of Eric Carle. My fun tool box is because of him. After watching the Mr. Rogers video I had to paint some. How could I not?

Do you collage?

One of my favorites. I worked on this Peacock for a few days. I painted the texture with a small flat tree gumball. My inspriation was Eric Carle. I wanted to use color and texture to show the wonderful pattern and color in this world. I painted several texture papers. Then let my eyes choose the color scheme. Good job Thank you for subscribing.

Eric Carle best days ever!

I am writing a list of wants. I have a page. I will never forget my RSP class. EVER! We created and it was amazing. I know they are not going to read this. I still have to share my memories. It is always good to release good vibes of gratitude. Maybe others are looking for a fun creative project too. One of my wants is to do this again. I will.

Textures + Thanks a Bunch

These are just a few of my textures. I’m going to go watch some videos on Eric Carle inspired textures. I believe I will be illustrating the book collage style. I’m not sure how I got started with all of this but I did. I’ve been doing some collage lettering and it has been fun. Which brings me to a huge thanks. I’m thankful for my upcoming assignment. I’m thankful for all of the posts that have inspired ideas and provide me with the creative environment that I need. Especially the kiddos at Lee. Bless them all! I’m thankfoul for my tribe. (You) Thanks for reading and hopefully creating with me. In a few weeks I’ll be emailing a teaser for the book. Are you a subscriber?

Eric Carle Collage Art

It’s amazing what a group of students can do with a little water, paper, watercolor paint and a paint brush.

First step is to create awesome textures…

Mission accomplished!

I ‘ll never forget the lessons I learned. The biggest is that painting, creating and encouraging others to embrace their masterpiece is… my world.

Live your story is all about embracing your style, tapping into that artist within. AND that’s what painting with these kids has been about.

I sure do feel like anything is possible…
