Tuesday creative

Happy Tuesday everyone. I've been thinking about creating my own acting opportunities. I'm fed up being what I call an "acting monkey". (No offense to Curious George and other monkeys.) Coming in and smiling. Doing my audition and getting great feedback. Then waiting for a call or a job I want falling through. I know a lot of artists get to this point in their careers. What kind of acting opportunities? I have ideas swirling in my Aquarian head. How will I do it? I don't know yet but it's all part of the journey. This is my year of adventure, right? As I let that creative part of me start stirring, I have other creative projects going on.

I wanted to share scans I did from Victoria Magazine from Feb 1999 issues. These are the work of British mixed media artist, Sarah Lugg. The pictures fit for Valentine's Day.

This is the cover.


Here is another look at Sarah's lovely hearts.


Now, Love spelled out beautifully.


I always loved her work. She inspired me to do my own work on tags.Here are two of my tags I have done so far.



It's fun doing the collage tags. I'm currently working on more. I have been working with the program: paint.net. I'm still getting the hang of it. Here's one picture I did of my Gerard Butler as The Phantom. He is now the The Phantom of Hearts in honor of Valentine's Day.


Don't forget to enter for Swanofdreamers' birthday giveaway. You can see the countdown on the right side of the screen of the big day. The details are in the post below. Also, go visit Kathryn and join in The Valentine's Day Party on the 14th. I am participating and it will be fun. I have all kinds of romantic lovlies planned for the day.

As always, Sweet Dreams to you all.

Hey grrrrl....your bloggy' home just gets prettier and prettier each time I come by! You won't mind if I grab myself a cup of tea and linger for awhile, do you?

It's soooo relaxing!

And good for you! I was thinking along the same lines how I should start making opportunities for me too. You with your acting and me with my training gigs...what we're doing and going through is somehow similar in a sense that in my line of work, I primarily entertain as well.

So here's to you! May the fairy wings of creative blessings show you and me the way...it will..it will...it will..

Love to you girl!

and the scanned pics are like a virtual "eye spa" for meeeh!
