Spirit: (airy, flight, change, happy, breathe)

Spirit!!!

I made a secret pinterest board so I could collect the images that were inspiring me currently.  At first, it felt like it was all over the place, but then I started to see some patterns appearing.  I wanted to think of a title to also help inspire me, and it comes from a project I worked on briefly a few weeks ago while attending the Texas Art Education Association with my friend Lily.  It was a found word poem / art project and the word I found on the page was anima - and I am referring to the latin meaning: 1920-25; < Latin: breath, vital force, soul, spirit.  

I am DEFINITELY going through some major changes in my life, and I want to bring more of these ideas into my every day - airy, breathe, happy, change and flight.  I can see these ideas in my inspiration photos too.  I am really inspired by delicate cut out shapes, seeing other colors and images peeking through another shape, transitions of colors, scallops, facets, watercolor / translucency.  I am really looking forward to this project.

Sketches - having some trouble getting my traces from inkpad to my computer, but never fear, I'm still going to try to make the deadline.....

My Patterns - I want to try some more patterns and vary the colors a bit, but I was short on time to finish this project.  I'm so proud of myself for finishing this one to this stage.  All of my backgrounds are white at the moment, and I think some sizing and arranging could make these look even better, but I'm pretty happy with it overall.
