Creating quick and easy art is one of my goals for daily creativity. I like being able to do something, even if I only have 15 minutes. I’ve said it before, prepainted backgrounds are AWESOME. I love creating backgrounds. I personally think it is one of my strengths. Having a few pages ready to go, helps me to get in a little creativity in a little time. I can just open my journal and doodle, paint, color…whatever I decide.
Last night, I did a quick ink doodle. Afterall, it is Inktober! Inktober, is a challenge to artists to draw with ink each day during the month of October. Now, I cannot promise that I will use ink only but when I do create I typically have ink included. These 30 day challenges are meant to keep you practicing and improving.
Time for the another art journal class – Art Party Wednesday with Tiare and it’s going to be artsy! As usual, I will be live-streaming tonight in my pajamas, starting at 8pm est. I am excited to continue sharing my art with you. I hope that you are planning to join me. There’ll be crafting, laughter, chatting and fun! And it doesn’t matter whether you are a scrapbooker, art journaler, mixed mixed artist or card maker, the techniques I used can be applied to ALL! So be sure to tune in!
If you are planning to join the party, here is what you will need:

It’s October, which means it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each year the wonderful ladies of SOC host challenges, post reminders and share their breast cancer stories. The media is flooded with reminders and stories and everything around us turns pink. This month cannot go by without touching your life. This weekend I was moved to create a canvas honoring the women who fought the good fight but lost the battle. Some Angels Wear Pink is dedicated to all those brave women. My thoughts go out to all of their friends and family whose lives have forever been changed.
For my creative friends, I share a few process photos. This was a such a moving and emotional painting and I am glad to share it with all of you.
