Karen Elaine  Art is soul food. Art appetizers to nourish the creative spirit. Origami 💜 @wonder_lit_woman

Learned a really cool technique from one of the students in my workshop yesterday. The best part of teaching is learning something new! #art #colorful #artjournaling #creative

Finished day one of my Creative Journal workshop, now starting day two! #creative #journal #sedonaartscenter

Making large gift bag tags for my workshop students this weekend using watercolor paper, watercolor and a hand carved eraser. I’m excited about teaching a creative journal workshop at the Sedona Arts Center! #artjournal #sedonaartscenter #iloveteachingart

Brought my little painting kit to the lake today and forgot to bring brushes, so I improvised and used a makeup brush to paint. Painted with M. Graham watercolors. #adapt #art #watercolor #mgraham

Art journal page for today using gouache, acrylics, watercolor and pen. Thanks @rdbabc for the beautiful hand carved crane stamps! #artjournal #artissoulfood

Keeping it simple and fresh by not over doing it. I’m going to stop and sit with this for a while. I can always paint more later. #keepitsimple #watercolor #art #artist #flowers #artisfoodforthesoul #holbeinwatercolors

I’m just getting started on this flower still life and it’s almost dinner time. #lazysunday #artist #watercolor #artissoulfood

“Create for your health.” That’s so true for me. Art has been my center since I was a little girl even when life got a little crazy. Life is colorful!
I couldn’t help putting on more layers and dimensions to this art journal page. It feels complete now and I can move on to the next creative journey. #artheals #artisfoodforthesoul #artissoulfood #iloveart #art #artist #artjournal

“Uncovering the layers of creativity reveals the soul and heals the artist.” 💜
A storm this evening made my art space suddenly dark as I decided to paint over a busy page in my art journal. Before the paint dried completely, I wet areas with my brush and lifted off color revealing the brighter layers below. I used the Fabriano Venice Book which has pages durable enough for the rough scrubbing and lifting of paint. I had no idea where I was going with it but I was thoroughly enjoying the journey.

Used a 1 3/4” square paper punch to make baby cranes from my Kaleidoscope paper. Folding small keeps my fat fingers nimble. :-) #origami #crane #paperfolding #paperartist #origamitini

Painted these little soul circles on watercolor paper today thinking about how to follow my true path without the little distractions that keep me from my deeper purpose. It’s an interesting time in my life where I feel I’m awakening to something amazing! #artissoulfood #artist #watercolor #soulcircle #art

Carve out a little time for art...Just tried carving for the first time and I’m hooked! This leaf was carved out of a big eraser from the dollar tree with micro carving tools and speedball Lino cutters. It was pretty easy to carve, once I got the hang of it. Painted with #Holbein watercolors on a Moleskine watercolor journal. #arteveryday #artstamps #erasercarving #watercolor #artist #art #speedball #artjournal
