a little creativity everyday

I try to create a little something everyday.  Capturing a moment with my camera, dabbling with a new font, working on a project life spread - it doesn't matter how big or small.

During my girls' nap time, I can usually squeeze in a few uninterrupted minutes.  And last week, I grabbed some acrylic paint, tuned to the Adele station on Pandora, and got to work.

I love a blank slate.

This is a 6x6 canvas, already primed - but I still love to start with a layer of gesso.  I love the feeling of starting fresh and new.

I pick a few a colors that I am drawn to.  I find that if I have too many, I become overwhelmed.

And then I just let my imagination take over.  No right or wrong, nothing fancy.  Just me - playing and experimenting and trying different things.  An instant stress relief, always.

I grabbed another canvas - still playing with more colors.

And a little playing with pattern making.

And that's all it takes.

Twenty minutes later, with three small canvases in same color family, I am one happy mama.
