I am so thankful, that the promise of Spring always comes. There are times, as we are in the storms of Winter/life, we struggle to see the signs of it coming. We question the truth of it ever coming. If we can hang on and try to see the vision of it, we are able to find hope and faith as it carries us, until we are able to see it coming to fruit. So thankful for Spring!!!
This time of year is so amazing! Seeing baby birds being born and hearing their chirping. Seeing signs of flowers starting to surface the ground or trees forming their buds. Wow, it's so awesome, to see the beauty of Spring and the freshness of new things to come.
I find that, this is also true for me in my studio. Seeing the sun shining through the windows and doors, gives me a fresh dose of creativity. Hearing the baby birds outside my doors, leaves me breathless and in awe of the miracles of life. Seeing flowers and trees starting to bud, gives me hope of new life and freshness, to what lies before me.
We all find ourselves against road blocks in our art and we can at times feel like, maybe I lost my creativity. When in reality, maybe we need a good dose of Spring. We need to take a walk and really breathe in the air of Spring and what lies before us. We need fresh eyes to see the beauty, that is coming. I find that, I need this and try to remind myself of this, every Spring. Winter/life can at times, feel like we will never get out of this season. We feel weighted down and wonder when.....will Spring every get here. The great thing about Spring, it always comes through. We just need to have a little faith.....
I decided to create a new class; Seeing Within/My thrifty book
I taught this class, last year at a art retreat; "My story from within"
Within this class, I teach you how I created the covers, inside covers, 2 pages from sample books, the butterfly bezel and discuss how I created many pages from additional sample books.
This is the book that I created last year for an art retreat, that I taught at.
This is the book sample that I show on my dvd. I also will be showing how to create the butterfly bezel as well.
These are the 2 pages, that I will show you how to create for your book.
Additional books that I have created from this class. I do not teach you how to create these, but I do discuss how I created them.
On the dvd, I show many pages from these sample books. I have listed this class, in my etsy shop.
