AN ARTSY-CRAFTY RETIREMENT
Today is my first day of full retirement! Working two days a week since July I have had a taste of the free life and now I can eat the whole pie! There are many different art media and techniques I want to try on my way to developing my own style and possibly starting to sell some of my art. I still want to work on a technique to incorporate art with poetry because if I don't find a way I might have to re-title this blog--The Artsy Crafter.
Right now I have switched from doing those art journal pages to a new way to journal using quotes I find in magazines and paper doll art.
I'll play around with several ideas for awhile until I land on something I can develop into my own signature and see if poetry can be a part of it.
In the meantime I will take some time to relax and enjoy my new found freedom while making art, sipping tea or wine, sitting and walking in the crisp autumn sunshine, and generally just enjoying myself and creating!
