It was time to create but I had no mojo. You see I have been busy planning my very first public showing of my art, an all day crop, as well as a visit from a dear friend. Planning hasn't left much time for creativity. This day was particularly busy, but I had to get something created for my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® post. Well, what is a girl to do???
I go to my studio and the thought process begins. I grab a canvas and the new Gelatos® Steampunk . I knew I wanted to use the Gelatos® Black Cherry for the flowers. Creativity begins. As I create, I am not too sure how this is going to turn out. Not so sure I like it. However, as I continue, blending and smoothing edges with water and my fingers, adding shading and light, I begin to like it more and more. To my surprise on this day, I'm feeling like, "Wow, sometimes when I do not want to create, I am able to create something more beautiful than when I do want to create." LOL! It's a fun and silly thought and for me it's true...just for this moment.
I am feeling happy and stress free. Feeling grateful for being on the summer design team, for it has given me direction and a reason to create and relax. So perfect, for an otherwise busy day. Here it is. The not so cute start and the awesome finish.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an AMAZING day!
Hi! I am Tiare Smith. I am an avid mixed media artist and art journal enthusiast and scrapbooker. I have the most wonderful supportive husband and family. No children or pets. I find inspiration in everything around me from items in my own home and yard, to things I see on a leisurely stroll, to people, shapes and items found in a store, restaurant or museum. Inspiration is endless! I find joy learning, growing and sharing my passion with others. Providing ideas and information you can use!
Currently, I host a weekly online art pajama party, as well as online workshops and on-site classes. I spend time creating daily and I encourage others to embrace their art daily, as well.
I am hosting the AMAZING Embrace Your Art Crop and Cruise coming Fall 2015.
