Remember how I said I needed projects and direction? Well, I gots me some.

I know how some people believe that you declare your needs and intentions to the Universe and the Universe will provide (like the DH yearning after Rock Band and then getting a free copy from his buddy after Christmas), well from the moment I posted about needing direction, ideas and opportunities have been falling into place.

I got some clarity about what direction(s) I want to go in creatively this year, and I am looking forward to moving step at a time.

One of the first steps, Project Deconstruction: Color-Beyond the Basic with Julie Prichard and Chris Cozen. It starts Sunday, and it looks incredible -jam packed with good stuff. Even just the warm up discussions have been informative and inspiring.

Art journal page playing around with "quin" colours, as inspired by one of the pre class discussions (and you are correct "irregardless" is not really, a real word, being a double negative and all, but irregardless, I like it. ;)

Another hotspot for art related projects and fun is over at Willowing's ning. There's a paint & pass journal project, ATC swap, challenges, and a really cool Self Acceptance book project that is open for submissions until Feb. 20th. She is also doing a portrait class which starts soon called Fabulous Faces (unfortunately can't do that one right now too).

And there's more...more, more, more. But I am running out of time to blog right now. I just wanted to share a couple of the things I am finding to get excited about, and the fact that I am not stuck spinning my wheels, but am happily in forward motion once again.


  1. Your wheels certainly arent spinning any more...lots of wonderful, creative beginnings here!
    Love your canvas "connected", wonderful colours, textures and altered bits.

  2. oh man, oh man, oh man! this post is going to talk me into joining julie's class!!!! I have been wavering back and forth for DAYS endlessly. UGH. I wish I had an endless supply of money :(

  3. oh: I love the colors and composition

  4. I'm looking forward to you having a productive art year!

  5. Thank you for the mention, Evangeline! We're really looking forward to class! See you Sunday!

  6. OH! I LOVE the colors and movement. Love your "irregardless" piece!!!!

  7. yes, i too love irregardless regardless of it's 'realness'

    i love to hear of the universe providing responses to requests and intentions--it keeps me hopeful about mine *sends intention/request out to universe*

    have fun with all the arting!
