ok, i'm officially back from vacation and getting ready for back to school (eek!) i was in a little bit of a blog/journal slump the past week. just didn't fee like posting! but i had to take down that last dreadful post with the too-dark photo and re-do everything bright and up close! hope you enjoy. also did a little blog redecorating. i like it. :)

the two photos above are of a mixed media painting i did recently. i was inspired by the style of sarah ahearn and her new book, "painted pages." i thought i'd try something outside of my usual approach. my first instinct is to cover the entire page/canvas with color and pattern and brightness and joy. i like this more reserved approach with lots of white space and simplicity.
what creative adventures are you up to these days? how are you savoring the last few days of summer? let me know in the comments below and i will send someone a little summer sunshine packet of fun.
