Christy Tomlinson and Thinking Outside the Box.
I love Christy Tomlinson the creator of She art. I am a bit of a stalker when I make a discovery and I have been going back into the archives to find out about her creations. Today was the perfect day to do it because I am nursing a sinus infection after a tooth extraction. Ouch! even my guilt over a dirty house didn’t get any movement today.
As usual my mind is working overtime. I am thinking canvases, journals, teaching etc., I even thought about using some of her techniques to create my ‘Life Canvas’ for my craft room. What about it’s use in art therapy? Wow! I am exhausted just thinking about it. I think I should start small and just enjoy my creative side first!!
Then I got to thinking. I have seen her style of being very casual with her tools and mediums and how that adds an extra element to her work. I also have enjoyed her way of thinking outside the box when it comes to what she uses. I am a bit of a Magpie when it comes to ephemera and trinkets so now I know how to put them to good use. My craft room would breath a sigh of relief also. So, off too creative expression and thinking outside the box. Thank you Christy.
