Hi Crafty Friends!
I have been working on my Wellspring 2020 projects playing catch up due to a late start by me. The course I am referring to is of course, Wellspring 2020 by Artful Academy (formerly Mixed Up Creative Academy). Here’s what they say about the course:
Wellspring is an inspirational, motivational school all about using art for mental wellness and self-care. It runs in our dedicated online classroom from May 1st to August 18th 2020. Through 30 energising and insightful lessons we will explore how and why art can be a powerful tool for mental wellbeing and self-care, and make lots of beautiful projects along the way. Join us for 18 weeks of uplifting, empowering, thought-provoking, life-affirming art lessons themed around mental wellbeing!
Still playing catch up and doing whatever lesson seems most appealing at the time, the benefits of starting late I guess. Today I decided to do this:
This is another lesson about creating mindfulness aids and positive messages and required the use of wooden cubes or blocks. I didn’t have any and decided to make my own, so I will post up a separate tutorial on how I did that.

From stash: everything!
I started something new for April and continuing for May and June:
Since we are all stuck inside and can’t leave the house, I thought I would try and do two things:
1. use this time to finish any unfinished projects
2. use as much recycled materials as possible (I do this a lot anyway) but also not to buy new stuff!
So, with that in mind, I will note the above on any posts, if applicable.
UNFINISHED PROJECT – NO
RECYCLED MATERIALS – YES – plus nothing new used, no new purchases!
