I discovered Kelly Rae awhile back, bought a couple of her prints, bookmarked her website and started following her blog. Then I bought her book. And, on October of 2010, I created my first "Kelly-Rae-inspired" collage/painted box. That's how I started painting.
My next project was another box, made out of a recycled 'flexible straws' box. Also Kelly Rae inspired, but I had also just bought a Green Craft Magazine, so I was all about reusing, reducing, recycling!
Then, I finally had the courage to work on another surface - not a box - and call it 'a painting'.
Again, I was all about Kelly Rae's tricks and tips. I bought all kinds of materials that she recommended!
Now, almost a year later, I'm listening to Kelly Rae's advices again. This time, I'm taking her e-course: Flying Lessons. It just started this week and, so far, I like it! I'm really hopeful that this course will make a real difference for me, make me see things differently, make me believe that it can happen for me too.
Are you a believer? ;-)
