"Art is Freedom" Mixed Media Tag

By Aleksandra Mihelič

 

Hi, my dear crafty friends,

I'm a bit quiet here these days. I've been sick, I had severe pneumonia and sadly still not quite recovered yet. But it's getting better. Anna (aka Finnabair) is lately talking a lot about Art being a healing place, something we can run to when all seems overwhelming in this world and it is very beautifully said. I find myself lately to often think about whether others will like my ideas behind my projects or not when starting them. And it's good that we remember in these moments that art is for us and about us firstly and that it is our way of expressing ourselves and our emotions. We should not forget that. These thoughts inspired my today's mixed media Tag that I've made with gorgeous Graphic 45 - Olde Curiosity Shoppe DCE collection and Graphic 45 kraft tags, using also some fabulous Lindy's gang and Finnabair products.” ~Aleksandra
 

#G45Tips: Let art be your healing place.


See the full post here... 

 

Just amazing!  We want to send Aleksandra healing hugs, and a big thank you for sharing these inspiring words, and this beautiful tag.  Be sure to leave your love in the comments below to be entered to win this week's $90 prize package!  

 

Happy Papercrafting!

I hope you recover soon Aleksandra. I agree with you about crafting being a healing place for us! From the first moment I started using the Graphic 45 products I noticed the relaxing and soothing experience as I crafted. They also unlocked the creativity I never knew was there. Thank you Graphic 45 for providing an oasis in life's storms.

Aleksandra I also hope you will be feeling better soon - that's a rough illness to cope with and to recover from. Please take care of yourself. But like you said or maybe you were thinking, when you are not 100%, your creative artistic side really flourishes, and that's obvious in your wonderful creation.

I agree that art is healing!! If it wasn't for art I do not know where I would be. Eight years ago I had a horrific allergic reaction to a medication which left me with major memory issues, amnesia, and having to relearn how to read, write, cook, computer, phone, and unable to think, remember getting 2 degrees, being married, etc. My family started me off with coloring to calm me down and learn how to focus, and eventually explore more arts and crafts, and eventually going into an art therapy. Through art therapy, I learned about myself among other things. I am now an artist! I love this mixed media tag and its wonderful colors!! I love the play with textures within it. I cannot see what else you can create! Graphic 34 is my go-to for paper products! I hope you feel better and get better soon Aleksandra!!!
