Mirrored Magic


This week has been a real roller coaster. As always when I am struggling with something, I pour myself into making art and somehow that keeps me sane. (Well okay, that and spilling my heart to my closest girlfriends. You know who you are and I love you for really being there for me!!)

When I am upset, I just pull out my favourite art supplies, turn my music up loud and get busy. It allows me not to think and I am always amazed how easily I can slip into "the zone". It's definately balm for my soul.

Anyway, this is today's project. It's just one sample for the Altered Mirror class I am teaching next Friday. I had so much fun doing it. I only wish you could really see how vibrant the colours are. It took me all morning, but I enjoyed making it. Everyone can use a little magic in their lives! I can't wait to share it with the kids!

"Art Saves Me" is my mantra. Glad you had the distraction of being creative. And I really like your mirror frame. My friend made one that reads, "Unique: If you don't make your art, who else will?" Good luck with your class.

Beautiful work! So true about immersing oneself in art - it has helped me through so many dark hours, and I'm sure many future ones too. What a blessing art is... I love the rainbow of colors you used for the palette, and am sure your students will too =) Gorgeous work!

Love your work and I too need to get in there and do some art when I am feeling amiss - problem is I don't feel like doing anything when I feel down and this was a good reminder to get my butt in there and do it! Also I love your charm pendants - do you make the pendant case? or is it purchased? If so could you let me know where I can find them? _ thanks - Gina

Love your new creations! What fun classes you are teaching...wish you were closer and I'd take them! Hope you post the bracelets when the kids make them, would love to see how they turn out. I have a bumper sticker..Art Saves Lives and also a rubber stamp...and I believe it! It has saved mine..many times.
