Finding Wonder - Part of the Happy Artist's Life

"Finding Wonder"  collage by Lani, textures by FlyPaper.
Part of the joy about having a time set aside to do some daily art is this idea of exploring and trying new things, experimenting with textures, colors, and fun collage elements. Part of the joy is finding that sense of wonder is alive and that it can animate us.

So here are a few joy and wonder filled links for you:
Momentous Institute - an amazing website out of Texas, lots of great ideas for educators, parents, and mental health workers.  They have a great blog with book reviews and resilience building ideas, just awesome.  They also have some free apps you might want to look at.  (mindfulness based and soothing)

Also FlyPaper has some new textures, Fine Cracks.  Love me some great FlyPaper textures.

"The creative source is a room hidden inside you. Wonder is a door that - for an instant - opens to give you a glimpse inside. Wonder entertains mystery, builds a nest for the unknown and unknowable, and it lures you down the path less traveled." -Mari Messer from Pencil Dancing
