Taming the Critic with Diana Trout via 21 Secrets

Life has been crazy busy since we got back from vacation. The busyness of summer, and now school is in full swing.  As a result I haven't had a lot of time to post anything.

I have managed to find time here and there to make a few things.  Mostly, just creating in order to stay sane.  I need ME time.  Don't get enough of that these days!  (But that's another blog post) 

I am in the process of taking the 21 Secrets Workshop. 

A while back I made this little journal to take Diana Trout's "Taming the Critic" Workshop.

I thought I'd share my creations with you.

I love her Doodle Game challenge.  Once I start I can't stop.  I filled in the edges with black ink like she suggested.  I then used watercolors to fill in the doodle.

More Doodle Game fun.  This time I used my Derwent Inktense pencils to fill in the doodle.  I also added a few collage pieces.

Doodle Game using Crayons.  I then filled in the doodle with my Koi watercolors.  I added some black ink splotches.  I was just moved at the time.  Trying to just play and not let my inner critic set in.  I think this might be my favorite one.  

Five Minute Collage

Five Minute Collage using one color Palette.  I love white.  Don't know why?  Just do! I like this one!

Hope you are all well!  Take Care!
