Artists should be “green” too when they can, and it sure doesn’t hurt to save money on art supplies. I think that’s one of the things I love about digital art…it doesn’t have to cost you anything to create it, and it lets you give new creative life to something you created in the past. I love how this turned out. It has a very shabby chic and dreamy feel to it at the same time. And boy, if I could get paid to daydream, I think I’d be rich right now.

I just wanted to share with you my newest blog adventure…it’s called My Enchantments and it’s a Tumblr blog.
If you don’t know what Tumblr is, it’s a wonderful blog format that seems to lean toward visual blogging more than anything else. And it acts very much like Pinterest, in that you can post (like Pinning on Pinterest) your own content, reblog (like Repinning on Pinterest) other people’s content, and you can Like content as well. You can follow other people’s blogs, and they can follow you too. I love that it’s so visual, since I’m a very visual person anyway. But you can also write, post quotes, post videos, and post music too. So there’s no pressure to write if you don’t feel like it, which is nice.
My Enchantments blog revolves around primarily fairy and fantasy-related things. I’m posting my own photography and digital art, and reblogging what others post that fits with my blog’s theme. Fairies, dragons, unicorns, enchanted places and things, magic, fantasy, beauty, art, whimsy, love…these are just a few of my enchantments, and all things I post about.
I hope you’ll stop by and check out my new blog. Just click on my screenshot (above) and it will take you right to the blog. There are many wonderful blogs over at Tumblr. You may just find some creative inspiration there!
In my ongoing effort to get my creative juices flowing again, I’ve decided to start a brand new Visual Journal. I’m calling it Believe, and it will be filled mostly with fairy and fantasy-related art, doodles, prose, poetry, doodles, and what-nots. I’ve only done the cover so far.
I’ve always believed in fairies. I can prove they exist, because they are constantly stealing socks from my dryer! So I figured, why not devote an entire visual journal to them? Do YOU believe in fairies?
There’s so much magic in the world of fairy, after all. It’s a sort of wonderful, magical Neverland, waiting to be explored on the pages of my journal. A place where dreams come true, and a place where anything is possible. I think my mom is guiding me to this…to a place that will let me forget my troubles and find some sunshine. If I just close my eyes, my inspiration will be waiting…and I can hear her saying…
You know that place between sleep and awake, the place where you can still remember dreaming?
That’s where I’ll always love you…that’s where I’ll be waiting.
I am struggling a bit yet to find my creative mojo. I haven’t been in my studio much since my mom passed away. But I have been playing with some Fairy Digital Art here on my computer, so thought I’d post today’s Digital Collage creation.
The photo itself is one I took last year on an anniversary trip with the Hubs. I just added the flower fairy to it…and a little magic.
