I started a podcast!

Hey friends! I know it’s been awhile, but I’ve been busy behind the scenes working on some really fun and creative projects that I am so very proud of. One of them is the podcast, Creativ*ish. It’s a brand new creative community, newsletter and podcast that talks about creating a CREATIVE life with intention and growing from dreamers to doers.

I am so beyond thrilled, and I hope you follow along on Spotify, or you can also check out the website The Creative Podcast, to catch up on episodes and more podcast information.

Episode 00 is all about The Who and what of the show.

Episode 1 is the first official episode, and we are starting with our intentions series.

Setting Creative Intentions for your dream life Part 1: Identifying your wants.

I’ve created a worksheet to go along with the episode if you are interested! I filled out mine as I listened to the episode and it helped me keep my notes and thoughts together! Download here.

Thanks for following along, and I hope to see you as part of this next adventure!

With so much gratitude!

An inexpensive alternative to inks

I’ve been spending the last few weeks participating with Creative Bug and their inktober class with Lisa Congdon. It’s been amazing getting to create drawings from nature, playing with shapes and different colors. During some of the sessions, I was running pretty low on a variety of ink colors, so I decided to try food coloring from the dollar store. Guess what? They worked so well!!

In fact, I created this entire mushroom, using food coloring, a white gel pen, and a black micron pen. I wasn’t sure at first how well it would work, but when I began to dilute the color with water, I began to really see the variety of shades. The only pitfall? It dries ridiculously fast, so make sure to BLEND, BLEND, BLEND quickly.

I definitely see myself using this method in my art room since inks can get expensive! I hope you try it out, let me know how it goes!!
