Feeling as light as a feather…
Well… Not exactly, but I want to!!!
I ate a TON of chocolate for Easter and even bought Easter chocolates on special because they tasted so good…
And, my head has been ready to implode lately because of quite a bit of stress while trying to sell our house and buy a new one… Thankfully, ours has sold and we have a lovely new one to go to so no more stress required, thank you very much 🙂
It’s all positive (apart from the 16 extra kilos I shouldn’t be carrying on my body) and I WANT to feel as light as a feather, at least mentally 🙂
So, let’s take a deep breath, spread some paint around in our journals and add some gently floating feathers to remind us to just chiiiillll…. a little hahaha
Try it out for yourself and let me know with a comment below what you think!

hahaha Sharon you crack me up 😛 Thanks for popping by, I appreciate your feedback xx
I am enjoying your tutorials and am so glad to have found you! I imagine I will buy your book or take your video classes. I feel obligated to make a comment about spreading paint with your fingers. I do this too, and prefer it to brushes. However, some paints are made of materials that are poisonous. Any paints containing cadmium or cobalt are toxic. I believe there there is another mineral that is also bad to get on your skin or to ingest, but I can’t remember what it is. But the toxic paints are the ones still made from natural minerals/clays. Not all of them are toxic as far as I know – just some.
Thank you for your lovely feedback Jan, thank you. I am aware of the potential harm however after researching this matter a while back, I found many articles saying the risk of harm is very very small in the art world and only ‘pure’ cadmium paints can be harmful. I use cadmium ”hues” which are meant to be even less harmful. However in doubt we should definitely wear gloves or barrier cream so thank you for your concern!
