Creative outlets - how to get started

You do not need expensive art tools to get creative.

You can be inspired with a pen and a scrap of paper or a napkin.  

You can be inspired by the colours and patterns of the natural world, the seasons and the natural cycles.

I truly believe everyone has the ability to be artistic,

whether that be through art, craft, dance, music, food, words or personal expression.

You have something that you do well, connects you with your spirit and you enjoy!

I encourage you right now, to ask yourself how you can express YOUR creativity? 

My  main mediums are acrylic & water colour paints on canvas or card,

I dots with feathers collected on my bare foot walks around the valley.

A few years ago I reconnected with my soul and was reminded of the journey it wanted to experience in this lifetime.

So I set about recognising and using my personal gifts and rediscovering  my passion which has always been  helping others awaken to their natural potential and be their most authentic self.

Which is exactly what I want to help you to do as well.

Suggested activity

What you will need-  a journal, a blank page
or a blank piece of paper, a pen or pencil,
some coloured pencils.
Now take a moment to look outside.
What patterns do you see?
Is there a colour that you notice first?
How do you feel when you look outside?
If you were to chose a colour to express the way your feeling what colour would it be?
If you were to chose a shape or symbol for how your feeling what would it be? 
Now I want you to draw how your feeling using patterns, shapes and colours.
Give it a go and see what you create 

**I wish to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Australia. I acknowledge and pay respect to the Gumbainggirr people who are custodians of the land I live on in the beautiful Bellingen Valley. I would also like to acknowledge and thank the Elders, both those who have passed and those who are with us, for the knowledge and wisdom the have shared and the strength and determination they have shown. It is because of their courage, wisdom and resilience that we have a continuous living culture that spans over 60,000 years***
