I am sorry that I have been away from this community for so long.  If you forgive me, I plan to make it up with a summer of fun creativity challenges and art projects that I will send out at least every 2 weeks.

I have been away because my dad got ill (non-COVID) and taking care of him took over my life.  He is much better now, and I plan to dive back into my art and sharing ideas and projects with you to explore your creativity too.

Finding Your Creative Magic Glitter Bottle

Even though I wanted to restart, I had a mental wall that stopped me.  I needed to change my inner voice so I would act on ideas. To help my intention, I created a creative “magic jar”. It is a small glass vial that I filled with multi-colored glitter.  I put the jar on my desk next to my art supplies as a visual reminder of my potential and of new art waiting for me.

After looking at my magic jar for a couple of weeks, I created a new sketch.  It was a meditation about changing my inner voice to have a regular art intention.  My idea was a spiritual version of my inner Spirit being creative and sharing her art out.  The sketch idea evolved into a painting of an angel or creative muse putting out inspirational ideas into the universe for me and knowing my art intentions are supported.  When I look at the painting, I can see it as both ideas of giving and receiving creativity.

I would encourage you to create your own magic bottle or invent your own version of it.  I will design a coloring page version of the “Manifesting Universe Angel” and send it out soon.  If you want to try creating your own creative Spirit or Angel, please do!  I would love to see what you create so please either post in the Activate Your Spirit Art Challenge Facebook group or reply to this post. 

Creatively Yours,

P.S. I also shared about being a caregiver to my dad and creating this angel on DonnaBellas Angels Blog (my inspirational art non-profit) if you want to read more or see it in the DonnaBellas Angels Art Gallery

Creating the Manifesting Universe Angel Art

I started off with a pencil sketch idea and then did it again in ink.  I took the sketches and used them to trace the image on watercolor paper. After painting, I wanted to pull out fine details but did not want to go darker so I digitally added white over the top of the painting.

I will share out a video of creating the artwork at a later date.
