OMG! I have just had the best art therapy ever. I would just like to thank my lovely Mum for introducing me to Kelly Rae Roberts. What an inspiration! I have just read her book Taking Flight and I absolutely loved it. She has inspired me to venture out of my comfort zone and try something else. I have always loved painting but have never been able to find an area that I am happy and comfortable with. Recently my mum started doing some mixed media collage paintings and it caught my eye. I haven't really seen much of this type of artwork before but something about it interested me so Mum loaned me her book (Taking Flight by Kelly Rae Roberts) and encouraged me to give it a go. I have already ordered a copy for myself I loved it that much.
I have been pretty upset and down in the dumps since getting some bad news yesterday but Mum said it's the perfect time to give this type of artwork a go as it will take my mind off of everything and help me release some stress. After a little bit of hesitation I did it. I decided to start a piece using the book for inspiration. I had heaps of fun doing it and can't wait to finish my piece. I just need to get a few supplies tomorrow at the shops before I can continue. I have added a few photos below of my artwork in progress. I hope you like it.
