My Open Ticket :)

This artwork was inspired by two amazing artists:  Gretchen Miller  and Lani Gerity Glanville!

This week 14 secrets fun challenge is about creating our own open tickets through our creativity..

So here we go exploring a magical journey where everything is possible!

My Open Ticket  started from my collage and mixed media assemble made a while ago… This time its journey got expanded,  altered, reinvented and the magic trough art continues …


What about your open ticket?!?  Come and play and share your work if you like with 14 Secrets on Instagram by adding #14SecretsChallenge to your description, or by adding your photo to our Flickr pool.

Mid-week pondering: Inspiration from the Pocket Exchange ATCs project

Gretchen Miller, Beth Rommel and Hannah Klaus Hunter created the pocket exchange ATCs project spreading the message through the great 6 Degrees of Creativity Community

“Pocket Change is inspired by the same spirit and intention:

Pocket Change is all about how simple and small acts can create and instill kindness, gratitude, and change. Think about the power of your mini artworks as a means to express and share a positive image, message, or intention with others (and the world!) that can make a difference, bring hope, or inspiration.”

I finished my ATCs the other day and the process was so very inspiring affecting other current projects connecting communities and sharing creative goodness to inspire change and kindness (more news soon)…
It’s fascinating  to follow this creative flow starting from all the Pocket Exchangers  spreading across the globe creating something, communicating and inspiring others…Thinking about the journey of these ATCs hopping from one creative hub to another and spreading the message connecting more people in the process…Wonderful…

Thank you Gretchen, Beth and Hannah !!!



Create, surprise and share: 2013 Creative Pay-it-Forward


I have been very inspired and motivated by some fabulous sharing creativity and connecting with very amazing  people. In particular the communities of 6 Degrees of creativity, 14 secrets and painting with your muse   are so  resourceful, supportive and vibrant  fantastic spaces:))

Recently, I came across the 2013 Creative Pay- it Forward but with all my whereabouts I didn’t manage to sign up until now!!! YAY!!! Thank you Janet McLeod , her beautiful blog Positive Art Therapy  just brought my attention back to it:) so exciting so now something special will find its way to me….

In return for this I am Creating it Forward: The first 5 people to comment on this blog or my  Facebook Page will receive sometime in 2013, an artful surprise from me. It might be artist trading card goodies, altered art or photographs, greeting cards, gratitude scroll or maybe a sock monkey! Just a surprise:) There will likely be no warning & it will happen whenever the mood strikes me over the next 12 months. The catch? Those 5 people must make the same offer on their blog or facebook page to pay forward the creative goodness.
