Genea goes on a creative streak!

Hello creative souls,

Wow have I been a on a roll with some artwork! I am excited to share my creations with you this week!

The "Labyrinth Lotus" is still in full effect. I did a quick video to show you all the first layer of petals lit up! Wow is it spectacular.

I have the second row of petals done, but still make the 3rd. I got a little side tracked with some of the other art I will be sharing below.

Next up I got some super sweet mirrors from Ikea for my walls and when I got them home I thought about how sweet they would look all decked out in stencils! I did a little paper template to try out my design before moving the final design to my mirror. I just taped 2 pieces of my art sketch book together and mapped out the side of the mirror.

Next I moved onto the finished product mirror.

As you can see I am still just slightly OBSESSED with the labyrinth series stencils.

So I am pretty stoked to be attending our regional area Burning Man event called, Resonance. "That thing in the desert" is actually happening RIGHT NOW! Sadly I am not there this year, but next year for sure. You can actually tune into BMIR(Burning Man Internet Radio) to hear what's happening. There is also a live cam where you can see the playa! So one of the 10 principals of Burning Man is "Gifting".  I am naturally a gifter at heart so this part is one of the best things for me! So how does this tie in to this post you may be wondering? Well in the art of gifting I have had so much fun painting and making art that I thought it would be even more fun to paint on bodies! I picked up these Wolfe body paints

and grabbed my brush and one of my favorite Artistcellar stencils, "Flower of Life".  I used my boyfriend as my canvas since it's so much easier to paint on something that is not attached to your own body.

The Flower of Life stencil looks so amazing against the teal green. I can't wait to practice some more! I plan to take at least my sacred geometry, sacred geometry 2, Chakra Series, Chakra Pocket Stencils, and Labyrinth Series stencils with me. Lol, may as well take them all, huh?! 

I also wanted to create some little pieces of art to gift at Resonance as well. I decided it would be fun to create some mixed-media pieces that were 4"x6" since I have some really pretty crystal clear cello bags in which to put them. I don't know what it is about super shiny bags that make things look so expensive and fancy.

I had originally had the idea to do some water color-ish piece background and draw some sacred geometry on the top layer, but it's a lot harder than it looks! You can see my attempts here

The first tiny art piece I did I called "Psychedelic Macaroni" cause like Shana, I see macaroni in this stencil series "Marked Series" stencils.

I had so much fun with the first one I kept rolling with it. I did the Sri Yantra piece next. Then I did the Chakra Series piece. I love the pattern on my "Labyrinth Lotus'" so I thought I would do a mini art piece like those as well.

What a blast and it's so satisfying to finish each little piece and make a new one :) I even got my friend, Zack to create a mini piece of art too! His very first mixed-media piece :) 

Here are the last ones I have done, but still plan to keep making more!

What are you favorite mini masterpieces to make? 

Lots of arty love and good vibes,

Genea
