f Just because... - Art Eye Candy

Just because...

It's been a bit of a busy week for me.
So I thought that today, I'd take a whole day and just make art, nothing else would get in the way.
It's a luxury that I have at the moment, and it's a luxury that I treasure.  So today, I'm living my dream (even if it stops when I pick up Little Miss from preschool), I'm living my dream of making art 
if even for a whole day.

don't you just LOVE the colors of this...
it's in my garden (I'm not even sure what it's called) it caught my attention as I was heading to the garage/art supply storage to get out some canvases... and you know i just love that pink.
You can't help but get inspired by your surroundings when you open your eyes to look.

I decided to start on an other altered book, as I'd so enjoyed making the last one, and I found some old mini board books hanging around.

I've made a start, I'm actually taking a break to type this post, I'm at the halfway point.


as usual I start with collage, it's become my background of choice.
I even (in fact it should say always) include some of my Little Miss' scribbles too.  Every piece that I make now has something of hers in it somewhere, I really like that idea, it makes me happy.

The size is small too, its only 3.5" x 3.5".
too cute.

This is where I'm at now.

I've called this book 'Just because' and quote running through on each page is from Marilyn Monroe.

Hopefully I'll be finished by hometime, I'll post the rest of the pictures tomorow.

I'm not sure if you have visited the 'workshops' age at the top of the page yet, but I've got something exciting to tell you...
well I'll just show you instead.

I'll be adding the first sessions topic to the workshop page today.
I really hope you might join me, it should be fun.
(and its entirely free)
woo hooooooo.

In other news, I'm working to arrange a monthly newsletter called 'Art Eye Candy Love' that will launch on May 1st 
so keep checking back to sign up.
It will be full of lovely Art Eye Candy, tips, treats and discount to the Etsy store, you'll also be notified if there is anything new before everyone else.
I'm really looking forward to this.

And I know that I have mentioned this before, but I'll also be opening workshops over in the 
'Art Eye Candy Clubhouse'
more info coming REALLY soon.

I'm loving all the ways that we can connect... 
I can't wait to get to know some of you more.

Just before I go back to the art table (dining room),
I wanted to share this little quote that one of my FB friends sent me...

Thank You Denise Bundy

Happy Friday.

A great Post Rachelle!Imagine a whole day in which to do Art! Lucky you :)I would love to participate in your workshops at some stage! With full time work beginning it might have to wait til my block is finished.

Awe, so much news. Love. I will really have to join in! And did you really get a whole day? What did your daughter do? My youngest does NOT let me accomplish anything. I get pretty bummed about this, clearly.

So I am way behind on life, but you never know when I'll get to play! I hope so soon! See you on IG!!! :D

hi Fi,

Id love to have you in my workshops when time allows it. I know how hard it is fitting in art around a full time job, never mind family etc.
I did get a day, and I LOVED every minute of it.

Hey Daniele,

I did get a whole day, my little miss was in preschool so thats the only way that I managed it. When she is at home, she will sit and make art with me, I got her a set of supplies and paper so she's really happy to join in.

Keep creating...
