Believe In Forever . . .

I have been feeling less than inspired these days, not creating much. Today as I was flipping through my sketchbook I found a page that I used to play around with stencils and black fabric spray. And just like that I was inspired.

I added some pink watercolor over the top, stamped the words that came to mind and then added details with a black sharpie pen, finishing the edges with a black gelato. I never expected something so simple would inspire me so much . . .

Sharing over at Paint Party Friday


  1. Sometimes 'less is more' ~ this is a very creative, colorful and textural piece of art work ~thanks, namaste, ^_^

  2. Cathy, this page is wonderful and I love the color palette, the white shapes remind me of lace.
    Happy weekend!

  3. Wonderful!! Love the colors and the "messiness" of it! And jgr is right - it looks like lace!! Happy PPF! Hugs, Silke

  4. The page almost dances that's why it's so inspiring!! Good job! love when that happens!!

    Hugs Giggles

  5. I've been over-dosing on vampire TV lately so this seems quite appropriate - all that immortality.

  6. Loving all the subtle shapes and colours. Happy PPF, Annette x

  7. Inspiration Sometimes Floats To Us Out Of Nowhere. And How Pretty This Piece Ended Up. Thank You So Very Much Sweet Cathy For Leaving Such Comforting And Compassionate Words At My Place Earlier. So Similar To Inspiration ~ Grief Catches Us By Surprise Sometimes. I'm Learning So Much On My Journey Towards Healing. There's Such Brilliance In All The Madness. Sending You A Hug Of True Friendship & Georgian Sunshine, Terri

  8. This is what I do when this happens to me--look at work that I've done when I was just basically fooling around--sometime some of the things I find surprise me. This really helps when you are feeling like this--fight back!
    I'm hoping this year is a better one for you--you've had your share of not so good times--now it's time for the good ones.

  9. Very pretty.
    So glad you are feeling inspired again. :)
    Happy PPF!!

  10. I think this is gorgeous! I see a girl's profile in the upper left side.

  11. I love it when things like this happen and then all of a sudden you are back on track... looking forward to seeing what inspiration strikes next...xx
