Soul.Full {pretty little ways to bring more SOUL into the day}

This is turning out to be one of the most creative falls we have ever had on the Jeanne Oliver Creative Network!

I believe we have some of the most unique and beautiful online courses out there and I am so proud to tell you that artist Kelly Barton will be teaching this November.

Here is a peek into Soul.Full {pretty little ways to bring more SOUL into the day}.

( pretty little ways to bring more SOUL into the day.)

little pockets filled with color and flare.

long ago. dancing in this girl’s memory.

simple. lemonade summers. hot chocolate winters.

this girl telling those stories she collected and stuffed deep in her pockets.

Each day we work. we stress and some days we collapse on the couch exhausted. The next day we begin again. In the lands of the middle there is a girl who craves creativity. color and

story. She finds simple ways to express herself and add color to each day. Art soothes her soul, and the layers of color allow her to soak up the world in a way that adds back in the bits with simple lessons.

Want to hear a little about what we will be creating?

project no1. – chalk

life has become filled with screen time and stale living. it is time to get outside and use the pavement to get creative.

project no2. – soul.intent

creating an organic shape using waterproof pens to outline, watercolors and adding a mantra, quote or intention to the art with pen.

project no3 – soul. notes

snail mail is making a come back! (at last) why not create note cards to send and share with others. it makes the world happy.

project no4. – blossom flags

little blossoms. create cutouts and simple banners to hang. i love how these bring more “sacred” into our life. they are simple touchstones for our day. they remind us to slow down. take a breath. what is important.

project no5. – ornaments

just imagine…a hand painted christmas tree! these cute ornaments can be used on your tree, garlands or year around hanging in your windows.

project no6. – pretty little blossoms

i love creating my blossoms. inspired deeply by the mandalas i love to create, these have more of a flora twist. we will also discuss fun ways to hang these when they are complete.

project no7. – blossom.lands

a creative fairytale so to speak. we will create tall whimsical blooms that create a canopy over a happy little dwelling or animal.’

project no8. fly

like the pretty little blossoms, only this one will focus on a butterfly!

bonus project: paper dwellings.

a simple collaboration with danielle donaldson.

little paper houses to adorn your own abode.

video one. chalked

a field trip using sidewalks, brick alleyways and fencing to create new canvas, everyday

video two. the creative hang

a chat about finding useful household items to frame and hang art/prints. also included natural canvas and frames, ie, wood slices, twigs and left over decking.

video three: prayer banners

simple and quick ideas on how to string, hang and unique ideas

coloring pages. downloads from me that you can color in, cut out and add to your own spaces
