A quick post all about creating a mess and turning it into something beautiful. The one thing I miss so much when I'm away is the ability to fulfil my creative side, to get in my own little studio full of random bits & bobs ( my husband calls it junk ) and play.
I felt inspired by the colour pink, the colour of love. I had no idea of what exactly, so I thought I would try some acrylic paints on a large canvas and see where it goes. It's the best therapy ever, just stop and listen to your inner self is so important, I truly believe, if we all could just play a little more we would be a lot happier and understand that in fact,its good for us to now & then to do something completely self satisfying and have no fear of being judged.I can express so much more visually, so for me its just as good as having a heart to heart chat, so all my secrets and feelings come out in my creations instead!
Arts therapies help you to express things that are hard to put into words.
There are lots of "Art Therapy Courses" around if you need a little encouragement!
This is my favourite part adding the pretty bits!
The Old ChairOnce again, my grandmothers old chair is part of the set ( it's literally falling apart and I really need to repair it ). I love including it in my work, I remember so vividly, sitting on this chair as a little girl having lunch with my grandmother ( it was a very dark wood then ) I always feel my grandmother is with me watching me create and amused that this 50 year old chair is still going in 2012!
A Bundle of Joy
Lots of flowers waiting to take part in it all!
