Love, Light & Joy

I had taken a bit of a break from creating any art. I think I was in a place where I forgot how theraputic it can be to get my hands dirty. I was too consumed with trying to get things “right” in other areas of my life that I did not bother to take some time just for me. And then I watched a video by one of my favorite people, Tamara LaPorte. And it resonated with me. I’ve been struggling with some inner turmoil for a while now and I’ve learned that I need to get it out. This free lesson from Tam was just what I needed. Here it is in case you’d like to check it out too.

So yesterday I got out a brand new art journal that I had previously purchased and started writing. I wrote over both pages, things I’ve been feeling, things I’ve had locked up inside for a long time. Just scribbling across the page. To get it out. No photos of this as 1. I didn’t think to take any and 2. I probably wouldn’t have anyway as these are personal, very private thoughts. But I am sure everyone can relate. Then I slapped on some paint and created the background and began to draw the girl.

In case you don’t know, my studio is in my basement so the lighting is horrid. Sorry!

Once I had the girl down, I just kept going. I felt so free as I created. I didn’t follow all the steps that Tam offered, but I did add a few words of what I want in my life. And here is the finished piece.

The colors of the background are really gorgeous, a vibrant contrast against the mostly black & white girl. I think I kind of love it.

Thanks for stopping by. I think I’ll go create some more art. 😉

Oh, before I forget! Tam is having a huge 50% off sale on her self-study courses TODAY ONLY! I am not affiliated with her in any way at all except that I adore her and her classes. I have purchased three myself that I can’t wait to start! And I’m already in Life Book 2015 which I LOVE!!! Check it out right here.

Life Captured: May

I cannot believe that we are half way through May already! It seems like only yesterday I was wishing away winter. 🙂 And because it is May, it’s time for a new Life Captured kit!

Life Captured: May

I really love how this kit turned out. The colors and elements make me happy and it is such a versatile kit! Take a look at what my team and the PBP team did with it:

A Few Layouts

Hope you all had a happy Mother’s Day yesterday!

I got a chance to scrapbook yesterday. I did one layout. I really need to make more time to scrapbook. It’s funny how I miss it because I focus on designing instead. Sometimes I think of giving up designing just so I can spend all my time scrapping like I used to. Anyway, here are three recent layouts I wanted to share.

The one from yesterday of my oldest daughter Jordan:

jlabre-reach-0113 Credits: Once Upon A Dream by Krystal Hartley, Brook Magee and Studio Basic Designs.

And two from last month of my daughter Jenna:

0213_Crayon-Artist Credits: Artsy by Kristin Aagard and a template from Cluster Queen Creations.

0213_Be-You Uses my Charmed kit.

If you’ve created some layouts recently with my products I would LOVE to see them! Feel free to post them in my gallery over at Pickleberrypop. 🙂

Have a great day!

Mulberry Road

Hi everyone!

Did you have a fun weekend over iNSD? I actually got a couple of layouts done and did a bit of shopping which is always good!

Just in case you missed out on my Free With Purchase last weekend, I am now releasing Mulberry Road into the store.
