It feels like Fall here in Temecula with cooler temperatures and a blustery wind. I know it won’t last long, but I am enjoying every minute of it. I do believe I will be posting more to this blog when Fall becomes a reality and I can cozy up with my computer (not really) and a cup of tea.
Not only is the weather cooperating today, but I have been feeling “Fall-ish” for the last couple of weeks. Readying myself for the holidays season by creating little houses, big houses and all sorts of holiday fun. I am hoping that some of my pieces find a home in a local shop, but if they don’t, I hope that my friends appreciate them as tokens of my love for their friendship and support of MyMixedUpArt endeavors.
I have actually been considering an Etsy shop, but have not taken the plunge. Not sure what is stopping me as I’ve had lots and lots of encouragement from artists I know and respect. I guess I have to work up just a little more courage.
The weekly Colour Me Positive Art Journal Challenge and the Kelly Rae Unscripted projects continue and I find that I take both inspiration and courage from both and that they influence me as an artist a lot.Both have also given me the courage to try new techniques and further develop an artistic voice of my own.
Here are just a few of the pieces I’ve been busy creating over the last few weeks. I want to give credit to some of the wonderful digital papers I have found on Etsy and from TheGraphicsFairy.com website. It’s such fun to imagine a piece and go searching for the elements that will fulfill my imagination. Both are a tremendous resource.

I’ll leave you with this quote I just discovered on creativity. I think it says it all. I’ve been blessed to have found some really terrific artists who have been willing to pass it on to me.
