The Birthday countdown continues:

The art journals are increasing in size and fun.  I used to be so scared of too much white space as that was way out of my comfort zone.  Now I just want to attack it!  I dig right in and cannot wait to see what layer after layer of paint and different mediums will get me.  I have graduated to a 11 X 15 Wet Media Journal!  Any bigger and we have to go with an easel! (which I have now too!)

So here was my page that I created LIVE to start out the 11 X 15 journal (remember starting that first page is always the hardest):

You can catch the recording of the making of this video HERE:


So much fun stuff going on here with modeling paste, Decoart paints, flowers, and Crafter's Workshop template and more!

and the pages on the twStudios Flickr Group just keep rolling in…….like this one from Andy Watson:

and Angie Reece "i think that this sums up what i've been doing lately. daring to dream. working outside of my comfort zone and trying new things. i never would have guessed in a million years that i would a) create a canvas like this and b) like this girly girl stamp!!! but i do."

 dared to dream


Angie has it so right with working out of your comfort zone and dreaming big.  I seem to be doing that on a daily basis!  I am right there with my fellow artists who are sharing their work with me!  Loving how that is affecting my creative process! 

So with that I dare you to work out of your comfort zone and start dreaming big!  My dreams are hitting the canvas and seeing where it takes me.
