Now onto a crafty tip:
I love the fact the Facebook and Pinterest are a wealth of quotes. This one popped up and it seemed perfect to write on one of the new Brave Intuitive Painting MakeReady Blank Journals.
I love writing my letters backward and changing the sizes and letterforms. Try it!
The quote is, "The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind."
Oh, and I also keep a box of little things like cool graphics from packaging etc. That's where I went to find the little scissors, iron and spool images.

More about the Quarry book:
Adopt a spontaneous, bold, and fearless approach to painting as a process of discovery—one that results in lush and colorful finished works that will beg to be displayed. This inspiring and encouraging book for both novice and experienced painters shows how to create colorful, exciting, and expressive paintings through a variety of techniques, combining basic, practical painting principles with innovative personal self-expression.
Flora S. Bowley takes a fun and forgiving approach to painting, based on the notion that “You don't begin with a preconceived painting in mind; you allow the painting to unfold.” Illustrating how to work in layers, Flora gives you the freedom to cover up, re-start, wipe away, and change courses many times along the way. Unexpected and unique compositions, color combinations, and subject matter appear as you allow your paintings to emerge in an organic, unplanned way while working from a place of curiosity and letting go of fear. She lives and works full-time as a painter in Portland, Oregon, where she is inspired by magical forests, abundant gardens and a vibrant community of fellow artists.
