for over a year now, i have found myself being more and more drawn to the world of mixed media art. so i guess you could call it fate that, one day several months ago, i stumbled upon kelly rae robert's blog. i can't even remember how i found my way there but i'm so glad i did. not only is kelly a talented mixed media artist but her posts have also been a great inspiration to me.
i was thrilled when kelly talked of her new book and i purchased a copy the moment i found out it was available for preorder. i was one of the lucky ones (those who ordered directly from Kelly) to also receive a signed copy of 'Taking Flight' with a free print which i absolutely LOVE!
as for her book - AWESOME! 'taking flight' is not only beautifully written but is filled with lots of beautiful eye candy. in this book, kelly inspires us to face our fears and to reach into our hearts to discover and connect with our creative selves.
each chapter shares inspirational and encouraging words, ideas, techniques, and step by step projects which are presented in an easy to understand format. at the end of a chapter, kelly includes a section with prompts and blank lines for us to explore our own thoughts, all of which are designed to encourage the creative spark within to 'take flight'. another plus for me about kelly's book is her inclusion of many quotes. i've always loved quotes!
'taking flight' will definitely be a very helpful studio companion.
excerpt from the introduction -
"this book isn't just my story. it's my conversation with you as we travel together on this journey into our creative spirits. whether you're a beginner, an accomplished artist or crafter, or somewhere in between, i hope the pages of this book inspire you to see something within yourself that perhaps you didn't notice before - a treasure trove of inspiration found in the depths of your heart." - written by kelly rae roberts.
