Junque Art Studio Play - Playing With Color

Junque Art Studio Play - Playing With Color

It's time for another Junque Art Studio Play™ video! (Formerly Fast Forward Art Play™) It's really all about playing, having fun, and discovering new things. I try to make time several times a week to play and explore in my art journal. To get in the "play" state of mind I find it helps when I limit my time to 30 minutes or less. When my time is limited I tend to not over think things and just let things happen. (Most of the time anyway.)

Getting Artsy with StencilGirl and PaperArtsy

The Holiday season is here and I can't believe it is almost 2017! I think it's true what they say... "time flies when you get older". This year has definitely flown by so I'm looking ahead to the new year with creative anticipation. My goal is to make more time for my art in 2017. More time to just play and explore!

Sometimes listening, really listening to what the slight whispers are trying to tell you is hard until they become more than whispers. Trying to ease back into my art by listening to the whispers.
