Returning To My First Creative Love

We all have one, that first creative spark
that absolutely thrilled us with the end results.

Mine, was working with canvas, Whether it was painting
or drawing, work with canvas has truly been my greatest
creative love.

Turn some music on to inspire me, and I am carried
away, leaving behind the troubles of yesterday, and transported 
to a place of peace & beauty.

That is where I was with my latest canvas work.
My favorite, peaceful vacation spot.
With waters in hues of turquoise, deep blue & pale green,
I reminencsed of the fresh salty air, and the sounds of the gentle waves.


Only one way to relive that moment in time......
A piece of canvas art.

With Faber-Castell Gelato's & Aqua Pencils, and a with little help from Jane Davenport's Inkredible Inks too, I did just that.


I love the blendability of the gelato's, and how well the aqua pencils worked for adding depth and detail.


Using the ink applies with a brush, just enhanced the depth of color.
I can not wait to use ALL of these products again soon.

So today, I challenge you, especially if your creativity is in a holding pattern
(as mine had been for far to long) return to that first creative love, maybe using products that were not available before, and watch your creative heart bloom again!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Until next time.....
Keep On Crafting!
