Week 35: Playing Around with Circles

shel

Set Yourself Free

How many times do we overthink our…day, night, work, writings, workouts, life, art?

Daily? Hourly? Every waking moment?

This is our last week of Creativity in “I Say Yes” and it’s all about having FUN! It’s all about not overthinking anything and just putting paint, markers, crayons, paper, etc down in our journals.

This week we are creating circles!!

Bright, colorful circles that let us just be FREE with paint, markers, pencil…whatever we choose!

There is NO need for perfection this week…we can be as elementary as we like! Our goal is just to let our art flow out of us onto the paper.

I really LOVE this set of circles by mixed-media artist Traci Bunkers.
