We have over 50 participants now in the BOD project. wow!!! I've been looking at your pocket pages and they are just amazing! It's so fun to see people let their creativity take off. Speaking of which, I just found out that there is now a Freestyle blog. It's with the Autumn Leaves artists that are featured in the Freestyle book. I was so inspired by the book and the blog adds a whole new dimension. They have weekly challenges that anyone can participate in and they really challenge you to think outside the box. It has had such an impact on me, this week for the BOD challenge we're going to be freestylin' in our own way. We're going to really let loose and see what we can come up with. Fun!
So what is freestyle?
Freestyle is anything you want it to be. therein the beauty lies! it is YOU, with wings! being free and making happy art.
I love this quote from the amazingly talented Emily about what freestyling means to her. It made me think about my own Book of Dreams and how I've had a loosely defined theme of children and dreams. Then when I got to work, I found myself adding wings all over the place. Something I normally don't do. I've decided my BOD is going to be about me... with wings...being free, dreaming about life, my children, magical things. I'm lovin' it. I'm off to work on next weeks technique. Can't wait to tell you all about it!
Check out what I found at a garage sale this weekend. Ok, the neighbor brought it over during our garage sale. I had to buy it! Hmm...now what to do with it?!
