Creative Frenzy: New Smash Ups

 Saddle Up This Wild Life - Print Available Here.

 This Wild Life - Print Available Here.

Dear Creative Creature, Saddle Up This WILD LIFE and RIDE! I've been digging through my Word Hoard again. I always find something inspiring to Mash Up. This time it spawned an entire movement of collages using snips of my own paintings as fodder. I've been digging deep this week & what appeared is just what I needed. When the words first came I had visions of sweet camels (like the one from this photo I found venturing around junk shops in Savannah.) I hadn't felt super inspired the past few days and this little wack-up of paintings was just what I needed to get back on the pony & ride. Weeeee!

Wild Life prints are in my shop (they look SO lovely in print!) I am so excited about these new pieces. The little Moon Dancer in the middle will be finished soon. And I have more words smashed, waiting to be colored & collaged!

On my agenda over the next week or so is getting my WORD HOARD organized. It's out of control! I have lots of other new & exciting things to share soon...

Happy Friday!
