As I promised, here are pictures of the mixed media projects I have finished. After participating in Jodene Shaw’s “Building Blocks” art class last December, I’ve been inspired to try mixed media art on my own. Jodene mentioned that she learned from and is motivated by Kelly Rae Roberts. I have slowly been working my way through her book, Taking Flight.
I have a lot to learn and a lot of practicing to do, but I enjoy the creative process and challenge.
Old decisions and roles may have been very good ones at the time, but we must give ourselves permission to know when it’s time to embrace new ones, bit by bit, one step at a time, until we are fully embracing our hearts’ whispers, wants and wishes today. ~Kelly Rae Robers in Taking Flight (page 13)
When we challenge ourselves to push our boundaries, we, perhaps without intending to do so, shed layers of muck-jealousy, perfectionism, worry, fear and self doubt. Underneath all these shedded layers exists a creative spirit that needs freeing. It’s been there all along, buried beneath misguided intentions. ~Kelly Rae Robers in Taking Flight (page 15)
When you listen deeply, what is your heart telling you?
