My Muse came to me.

Creativity-tea with the Muse workshop with Denise Daffara. Two things I like very much combined! : creating and drinking tea! 
 I had an amazing weekend at Buderim Art Cottage. 
I got to meet talented and inspiring Denise Daffara,
and what a delight she is to be around, spend the day creating with bunch of super girls! 
I like everything about that workshop: meditation to connect us with our muse, delightfull selection of teas, cute tea pot we got to keep 
yum yum snacks

and omg!!! gluten free carrot cake,tea ceremony, peaceful  atmosphere there, cute tea cups, 
and most of all my Muse! 
She came to me and said: 
Today my dear one, look deep in to your heart, because there is where your true essence resides! be open! Let it out And have fun with it!  Don't stress and relax!! 
At first it was bit challenging: new ideas, new technic of painting - Scratchy noises of dry brushes :) crinkled skin behind my ears but on the end I love
everything about her,( colors,  thick lines, multitude of painted layers, the way she looks at me from her painting :) not only with her eyes but also with her heart) I will treasure that connection we now have. 
That's how she looked at first

And than she transformed...and you know....she also loves tea very much ;)

Very content girl here. 
Thank you for poping in.
Love Monika

With a head in a spotty clouds.

First week of kids holidays!!! 

We are blessed with sunny days. So we have already done: camping, sunburn, puppy surgery, baked and eaten too many cookies, had lots of quiet time with kitty on my lap,

and some arty staff!  And there is still one more week left and more exciting things coming our way! 

This weekend I am doing Creativi-Tea with the Muse, Buderim Workshop with Denise Daffara, and a group of beautiful girls.

And next weekend our family is off to Byron Bay, Daniel and the kids for a relaxing weekend in this beautiful spot, me for a 2 day long Artomology Mixed Media Workshop at the Nest with the awesomest Jane Davenport. What a treat for my arty soul!❤️

I am such a lucky girl lately that I feel sometimes that my head is in a clouds!
Just like this girl have her head in spotty rose shaped clouds! :)

On this journal page I got a bit inspired by my dress:).

Supplies I have used: a beautiful stencil I wish I knew the name of ! 
Prisma colour pencils in blue shades.
Molotow acrylic paint markers in white , true blue, dark violet, blue violet pastel. 

You can get the supplies at Lulu Art and the Molotow Markers are on special this week !!!

Thank you for looking .xxx

Donna Downey Class! Yes please!!!

Oh! so new and scary and exiting is that blog thing for me :) 

But about classes !  These where 2 great days at Joybells Scrapbooking shop! 
Very nice venue, beautiful friends and lots of arty toys to play with. 
Before class I rummaged  in a deepest drawers of my art room and dug out my forgotten and lonely pan pastels:) I had them for a long time and i am hardly using it!
 But they look so pretty in a trays:) 

It was surprising how bright they coming out on canvas! I looove bright! 

And how the texture catches pigments. 

I discovered few more things those day:

Donna Downey is an awesome, fun teacher and also beautiful, down to earth person. ❤

OMG you can put Gelatos on canvas! 

You can grow poppy flowers in QLD? Shocking right? 

Liquitex Light modelling paste Is bubbling if you dry it too hard with heat gun, so are the liquid Golden acrylic paints:). 
Or that...i do not like oil pastels! At all! 
Or that my pit pens aren't completely useless and are playing nicely with Gelatos! .....
And I am sure many more! 

Now I just need to reorganise my desk, and find some space for pan pastels there, so I can use them more often, and also keep my eyes open for Donnas classes at Joybells next year! 

Thank you for looking
Have fun with your art!
