art everyday #1 and #2....

Hey Everyone. Today's post is my leap into Art Everyday Month! I will be posting Art I worked on a bit yesterday, and today. Yesterday I wanted to leave dedicated to the Fabulous Blog Hop I was part of that you can see here.  So today is a Two-fer!! 

The first art is a sketch I made on Canvas. Normally I dont sketch, I just go for it, but this one has a few intricacies that I needed to map out. I have been led recently to do a lot of birdcages. Mostly the birds have been hanging around their cages. But not anymore. With the recent blog hop and all the inspiration from my Flying Lessons Sisters, I have been inspired to leave the cage and fly.....personally, spiritually, and artistically. So here is the beginning of that.....

I am also taking part in an Awesome Study of the Book "Captivating, Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul". Along with the Study, I am venturing into the world of Art Journaling. Hers is my first page for that. As a bit of an obsessive perfectionist with my Art, this is very scary territory, but very freeing. I loved creating my first page. It is created with magazine phrases, oil pastels, acrylics, alcohol, gel pen, and ink pen. Huge learning curve with this one, but it was very liberating just creating to create. So Fun!!!

So that's my entries for Days 1 and 2 of AEDM.  Check out the website if you would like to get more info or participate.

I cant wait to see what everyone else is Creating. It always so Inspiring!!

Lots of Love and Artsy Goodness, Kelley
