Make it Personal


In response to Jane's of the things I got from it was how do we take her teachings and put something of ourselves into it?  One little thing I did to make the Beyond Skin Deep class portrait more mine was to use little paper punches.  I have one shaped like a flower and I used it in the paper on and next to her chin.  This isn't a great picture so believe me, in person it looks great.  It added even more texture.

  • That's awesome! A trust me...I know how it can be difficult to take photos that highlight all the neat layers. Some things can only be seen in person.

  • Thank you for sharing!  Beautiful work!

  • Thanks for sharing that tidbit of info regarding your work Connie. Actually, I have noticed that star shaped detail in your work and have wondered what it wa. I thought it was pen and ink. Cool!

Writing is a great way to share information and get things off your chest. If you have something you'd like to share regarding your artistic journey, this is a good place to do it. Maybe discuss a current project you are working on, an experience you had, or simply what's been going on in that head of yours. Maybe you are into poetry and feel like sharing that. Whatever it may be, I encourage you to blog a little...ramble and rant if you want. Check in daily if you'd like. Perhaps post a video of yourself. Whatever feels right for you.
