Some days (after throwing away 6 sheets of projects) playing with color is all I have. When do YOU know when to say when? What do you fall back on to be creative and give yourself grace? .

My version of journaling my feelings and processes are all about taking ideas and actions that don’t quite work and taking a risk along with a pair of scissors to create something I might not have been brave enough to do otherwise. My journals are a reminder of what I love AND what I don’t. Little visual memory banks of goodness with a smidge of ugly just to keep me honest. .

Seriously.

Does anyone remember - “Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down” - that’s how this little one feels right now - and so do I. #weebleswobblebuttheydontfalldown .

When you are disappointed with the apron and you just make a new one and slap it on with some elmers. Ugh. Lessons learned. I don’t like my little blossoms in colored ink. No matter how many times I try so NO more! I also shouldn’t be painting on something I love right now cause it’s grouchyothirty. .

A little @jeanneoliver inspired apron. Channeling her palette and making it rainbow-ish was a most excellent challenge for the day. How’d I do? .

A little tidbit for every color on my @danielsmithartistsmaterials palette. A much needed mindful project to clear the worries of the world away for a bit. What little projects do you do? .

If you saw my last post before I deleted it, I had a change of heart. I spent an hour painting scales on her mermie tail but really the only bit of her that came even close to speaking to me heart was this one. So she has been cut and rematted on a fresh sheet of white watercolor paper to capture the vastness of the feels I am feeling for so many things right now and then of course holding my head just above it to be sure I can breathe deep every now and then. This piece is now called Just Above. .
