To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.
~Henri Cartier-Bresson

you need

a new perspective

on your art

on your life

look from far away

look upside down

from different angles

in different lights

count the adjectives

and perhaps the verbs

but only in present tense

.: about Tammy — mom of 2; self-taught artist + photographer. I paint in acrylics + watercolors, art journal, make stitched journals + draw mandalas. Daisy Yellow is a mix of quirky inspiration. Get started with Art Journaling 101. {p.s. she is also one of my very favorite artists ~stargardener} ;) Connect with Tammy here:

About this series: I am a collaborator … and a story-scribe. That is why I have invited art journaling friends to share images from their art journals. The focus of this series is visual expression {collage, doodles, painting, photography, music, etc.}. The mission of this series is to present a wide variety of art journal pages — different styles and media, utilized by women from a wide variety of personal beliefs and backgrounds.

Because planning and dreaming {envisioning} what we want for our {wild and precious} lives begins with creative expressions {and excavations}, Braveheart. And our choice of expression is unique and specific to each of us … Dare to experiment with various artistic techniques and discover what you enjoy, what expressions “feel” right for you — what allows you to creatively remove layers and uncover your dream seeds. ~stargardener
