Well I finally am coming back to life, creatively speaking. I dove down under the covers, trying to stay warm and taking a much needed rest. Now I have the urge to dust off the surfaces, clean things up and take a look around. Life tosses out all kinds of challenges and I guess I had been riding a lucky streak. This year has not been my favorite, and I have a lot of catching up to do. Now I want to come out and play!

I had taken a class with Dina Wakley last year and then I picked up her DVDs. They are great!  So I decided to try my hand using some of her techniques. Plus, I took another class with Marjie Kemper at The Great American Stamp Store a couple months ago, which was really fun. So I have many sources of inspiration going right now!

Marjie has a wonderful online class on Craftsy. It's worth every penny!!! She is such a generous teacher and a very nice person. The class inspired this piece, I used Distress Inks and the Ranger foam applicators. Then colored our girl with colored pencils. I adopted Dina's advice that "perfect is the enemy of done" so I just made it without anguishing over every detail.

So, I hope to show you loads more!  It feels good to be back.
