Heart's Ease

'Find your heart's ease and go there often'

I love, love, love spraying and manipulating the background to get shadows and lights playing against each other.  The window is a Stencil Girl stencil I've had for a while.  I made a maple leaf stencil with a punch  (T. Holtz).  The dots are a stencil called 'half-tones'.  The white flowers below the window are just paper scraps I made and used as masks on another project.  I wrote my quote with a dip pen and white India ink.  Lastly, I took my art pens and shaded the leafs and window.

I'm all about gray these days, and am not sure if such a dark palette can help you find ease, but it works for me.


  1. Is that a light blue or just my monitor? The soft colors make me feel at ease, though I struggle being inspired to create art with grays for myself. I think that is because what I'm working out as I craft - stress, finite focus, details which I need release from after a long week's work. Release in a bright color way! Still, your words and your art are always an inspiration to me to craft "my" way as I thoroughly enjoy viewing what you created "your" way. Thanks for being an inspiration!

    1. Thanks so much Andie for ALL your kind words. That blue is actually a transparent white. It does read blueish.


I really appreciate each and every comment.
