i am an artist

My latest Design Team art tutorial went online the other week via the inspirational LuLu Art Store, read the full post here, including the full list of supplies needed.

I have always loved this stamp: Donna Poppies and was excited to experiment with it this last week.  It turned out very vibrant, I’m loving it.   I love slow starts in the school holidays, pity it was back to school today!

One of the hardest things I’ve ever done is transitioning in my thinking from ‘art is just a little hobby and something i do for fun’ to  ‘art is important, it is who I am; it has purpose, significance and conveys beauty, truth and hope.’   One of the most freeing declarations us creatives can make is “I am an artist.”


And don’t let you inner critic tell you that you can’t paint, go right ahead, it will be silenced when you begin to paint. Hope you enjoy the tutorial!
