Having learned the rules...


I'm uncertain who stated this but it still has great impact for me.
 "Having learned the rules, we can decide for ourselves when to follow them and when to color outside the lines. Today is a great day to choose to listen to inspiration and let your inner child come out to play. This decision is harder for some people than it is for others, so when we make the bold choice to follow our hearts and inner guidance, we actually help others to make the same choice. 
 We can teach by example, allowing friends and strangers to see how we light up when we shine our light, and how others respond as well. Although not everyone will approve, there will be those who will lend support and encourage such unfettered demonstrations of life.

 Those who are attracted to our light are the kindred spirits we should keep around us at all times, but if we don't let our unique sparkle be seen, those spirits may have a difficult time finding us. As we express ourselves freely and joyously today, we allow ourselves to be shining examples and beacons for kindred souls."

Please let me know if you know the author. Photos are mine, created from my technique of sneaky layering, published in my new book- see sidebar- and taught in my Digital Explorations Workshop.

inkAid- magic formula!

When you print to a variety of surfaces you need to prepare your surfaces with a digital ground.
A digital ground is a medium you apply to the surface that allows the inkjet ink to 'stick'.

I use inkAid. It comes in clear, colors and non-porous. You can buy a smaller sampler set to try!
There's much more about this magic product in my book- link on right.
