2012: Reclaim

Supplies Art Journal: Canson; Stamps: EK Success; Ink: Tsukineko; Acrylic Ink: Liquitex; Paint: Creative Inspirations; Gelato, Pen: Faber-Castell; Stencil: The Crafter's Workshop; Sketch: Sketchy Thursdays 01/05/12

I'm feeling a shift for 2012. 

I'm feeling my creativity shift more toward what I want to do.  It doesn't have to conform to what everyone else is doing.  (OK, so I've been inching down this path for a while now but I'm giving myself full permission to sprint down that path now.  Or even blaze my own!)

I'm feeling a shift toward refocusing on MY body, MY health, MY mind.  I'm not going to make any grand New Year's Resolutions to lose weight, curb my potty mouth or reorganize and clean my whole house.  I'm just going to let it happen if it happens.  (I'm just hoping it does, lol.)

I'm not going to formerly participate in any "One Little Word" or similar projects but I do like the idea of setting the focus. 

I'm going to focus on the word RECLAIM.

I'm liking the idea of exploring my journey in an art journal and I'm starting with this spread. 

It's based on this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch:

This week's sketch is sponsored by Scrappy Chics and is accompanied by a color prompt: blue & silver.

We'd love to have you play along with us!!!

Looking forward to an awesome 2012!!

Reclaim sounds good. And I'm with you on the no resolutions. It seems to work better if you gently steer yourself toward the idea of new year's things and see what happens, instead of trying to force all sorts of change....
