Lightbulb Project 2014

My Lightbulb Project was inspired by Maya Angelou and her quote, ” Nothing can dim the light which shines from within” . While putting the finishing touches on my Art work she passed. The project was a super fun experience and now it holds a special place in my heart.
Here is a sneak peak in to the beginning stages of my project. This is a four foot piece of plywood that has been cut in to the shape of a light bulb. Both sides must be painted and sealed so that it can be displayed outdoors for a period of two weeks. The Bulbs will be displayed outside of businesses, at Festivals, and street corners, and then will be auctioned off. Stay tuned for details…xo

Brene Brown Part 2 lesson 1 with Julissie

Hello! Glad you are here. So excited to be continuing my journey with Brene Brown and her ” Gifts of Imperfection” E-Course. I noticed some anxiety expressed by members in regards to the first lesson. I was trying to think of a technique that might help alleviate that. It’s so important to try to move passed that so you can get to the important part… Play Time! We all want to create beautiful Art. We often compare our work to others. This journey is yours and yours alone. Create your own story, be gentle as you begin to experiment with new ideas, new tools, and new feelings. You will slowly emerge. Be patient with new creative you!
Have fun, get messy, get creative, play!

“Gifts of Imperfection” Brene Brown Week 6 My Art Journal Entry by xo Julissie

My final week in my Art Journal for the Brene Brown E-Course. I decided to video my journal entry. I decided to keep it simple for those that just needed a simple way of adding quick color and design to their journal entry. I will be posting pictures of my finished pages later this week with my feeling on this week’s topic and what it means to me.
Next week I embark on a new journey with another favorite…
Julia Cameron and “The Artist’s Way” This book is a wonderful way to transition from Brene’s e-course. I look forward to this next chapter and I hope you will join me. Follow along and feel to free to friend me on facebook . I developed a private group called Gifts of Imperfection” Continuing the Healing after Brene Brown’s E-Course. We have 33 members and we welcome anyone who is looking for a loving/supportive place.
