Loving the Glitter.

So, how was your Sunday ?  I hope it was great.  My Sunday was spent here relaxing at home.  Oh, I was totally exhausted and woke up late , had some breakfast and went right back to bed.  I'd never seen the movie "Sherlock Holmes" with Robert Downey Jr. so I saw it today.  I gotta say, I really enjoyed it. It was a little long but I think Robert Downey is a great actor.  Would definitely recommend it.
I'm taking a class over at Hands and Heart with Monica and it's just fantastic.  I can't wait to start experimenting with all the techniques that I have learned so far.  Mixed Media truly rocks.
Worked a little on a mixed media piece I'm doing .  I don't know what I will name it yet but I'm having fun doing it....Halloween is near...!!!  I'm working on a sugar skull for a prompt at Wild Precious too. So many wonderful sites with so many awesome teachers and artists.  What would I be doing if I hadn't found them all...:-o. 
So sad we lost Steve Jobs this week. He definitely is the reason we all can do what we do here every day.  May he RIP..<3
Here is the piece I'm working is almost done. 

It's worked on a piece of Bristol paper 9x12, with watercolors, watercolor crayons, colored pencils and
sakura marker pens.  Oh, and of course the glitter is stickles.  Have an awesome week guys...tty soon...Blessings to all. !!!

Feeling The Muse ...

Hi, I am so happy that my video got so many awesome responses from all of you.  My email and all the sites I am part of have been amazing.  So much so, that I am definitely feeling the muse again. I've begun doing my daily practice sketches in the evening and I'm made a few "Dollies" inspired by Ady's class over at Dolldreams.  I've also been participating over at Wild Precious COA (church of art) on Sundays where Effy does a livestream and together we create art. My room is almost ready and soon I will definitely be showing you a picture of it finished. In the meantime here are a few of the things I've been working on lately. 

There pieces are inspired from Ady's class over at Doll these cuties. I am still working on them so bare with me.

These are my practice sketches I've been doing late at night, sometimes while I'm talking to my SS Michele way into the night.

This one is a tower painting in my journal inspired from a class over at A Lovely Dream with Suzi Blu.
I still have lots of catching up to do with all of my projects but I am feeling good that I am able to feel well enough to start "creating" again.  I've met some amazing people here . I never thought this would be such a Healing journey for me.  I am practicing on my video skills so I will be able to share my process with all of you. 

Hope you all have a wonderful week, it's already October...crazy huh?  Christmas is just around the corner...WOW.   Blessings lovely people....Big Hugs...Yolanda
