"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

SHOW SOME CREATIVITY SATURDAY #8
Okay, I'm branching out and trying some new things when it comes to creating. I've been trying to put more ACTION into creating more on a regular basis as one of my 2010 promises to myself. I'm also trying to put ACTION into letting go of perfectionism and just enjoy creating as a gift to myself and as an offering to my Creator. So here are a few things I've created lately in their raw form and are still under construction.
My lettering isn't the greatest yet, and I may add something more, once I figure out what that is. I'm just proud that I tried mixing collage for the first time with my acrylics.
"Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can."
A local church started an art class near by, so I went and I made my first mosaic. It was really a lot of fun breaking up old plates and figuring out a design to make from the pieces. It's really a great stress reliever also if you need to hammer out some frustration!
Wouldn't it be fun to mosaic a small table top to use outside this summer when you take your tea out to relax in the warm sun.. ahhhhh...
- I'm anxious for the warmer weather and this piece reminds me of the sun-
