It's been a long time...

I have neglected this blog terribly over the past month. But I do have a good reason... I've been busy working on my drawing skillz. I joined Adriana Almanza's Doll Dreams community, and I swear, I have NEVER felt so artistic in my entire life. I'm learning SO much from her workshop. Ady is an INSPIRING artist and for the first time I can really say that I found my place. See, I've always felt creative. I always had that in me. But I never really got the chance to find MY place. I started Art Journaling, and it was fulfilling. But not as much as I would have thought. And then I found Doll Dreams. ALLELUIAH! I can truly say that it is fulfilling, more than anything I have ever done before. So I wanted to share with you my last creation. I am really proud of this piece, and it is very close to my heart.

Please come and celebrate with us the 1st Anniversary of Doll Dreams! Who knows, you could win one of Ady's giveaway!! =)

See ya!

All That Jazz

Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and the charleston automatically comes to my mind when it comes to Jazz. I am not a huge fanatic of this particular type of music, but in the end... I love music. So when I opened that Graphic 45 Curtain Call and saw all these wonderful 'jazzy' type of papers, I just knew I had to make a jazz page. I was mostly inspired by the papers, therefore I have covered my right page with different papers and started from there. For once, I completely let go and just went with the flow. I just trusted my feelings, my instincts, without a plan. Lots of black and gold, with some touches of purple, cream and black cherry red... I just fell in love with the end result. I am very happy to know that I AM able to just go with the flow, and let it out without any preconceived ideas. So I had a blast making it, and I hope you like it too. This just has to be my favorite page I have created so far (funny how I say this everytime I finish a new page...!).

If you're blue and you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits
Puttin' on the Ritz

See ya soon!
