"You opened a window in my soul"

When it comes to art, I really am a"late bloomer". I only started painting and keeping an art journal in Oct. of 2008. Before that I dabbled strictly in crafts and collage.

Dancing was my first love.I had always wanted to be a dancer, a "prima ballerina", but health issues shattered that dream. My second love was art, but I was told by so many people that I did not have any artistic talent. So, I gave up that dream.

It wasn't until late last summer, when I was reading someone's blog and they had a link to SuziBlu on You Tube, so I checked it out. When I saw her Petit Doll paintings I said, "I can do that". So I started searching other art related videos on YouTube and decided to give it a try....just for me.

Then the art videos led to art blogs and I found all you wonderful and talented ladies out there, willing to share all your art and your techniques and I was so inspired and encouraged to do art just for myself...just to make me happy. So that's how I started Art Journaling and now I'll never stop making art. Thank you for opening that window in my soul.

So here's a toast to all my talented "Art Sisters".....You ladies "Rock"... I love you all!
