A Wonder to Behold…

Every single object in this book is heart shaped or has some embedded heart shapes. I did some research and found some beautiful heart shapes in nature. 

 

I had lots of ideas, even the possibility of a Desert Rose. Then I realized that I should stick with my skills.

I could paint a Desert Rose. Wait a minute. I could outline the plant with a crayon and paint a beautiful green wash over it. That would have been beautiful.

This works.

Sometimes simple is good. You are a wonder to behold. Yes it’s a simple leaf that millions of people probably overlook as they rush to school, work and urgency.

I have too. Yet I wander and wonder as often as I can. I embrace every shape and beautiful color that nature has to offer. I’ve seen leaves, a lake, a shadow, Roxy’s spots…

Every single one is a heart. A beautiful Wonder. These objects spark my curiosity and embrace my day. I believe this beauty exists in all of us.

Yeah just one of the many beautiful thoughts in my Live Your Story Book.

I can’t wait for the book to be done.

Creative Brainstorm

I just want to have fun with this book. I’m still working on my summer plan. All the details are almost in place.

I sat and doodled away at some lines, patterns, and textures. Ok at first I referenced some Instagram faves. Then I just kept creating.

It’s like writing. It’s always good to just write and write even if it’s garbage. Eventually you’ll arrive at an awesome idea.

I’m coming up with ideas for my letters and gathering my thoughts.

It’s been a good day!

Better Days

It’s always a better day when I paint. 

Seriously, I tried doing something I’m not good at. I was trying too hard. Then I sat on a Friday night and repainted.  

Oh goodness…

much better

I did include hand lettering on my to-do list.
