Searching for my Muse

As I have mentioned before we sold our house in Massachusetts and have moved down to South Carolina, quite a long adventure but we're here and getting settled in.  I was sure I packed my "Muse" and carried her around with me for the past 5 months or so but at times I feel like she has been misplaced, then suddenly she reappears!  Usually when I feel like this I start drawing faces and inspiration soon follows.  So here I go again with the faces.  I don't like to start on a blank page so I used the paper to clean off gesso from a Seth Apter stencil first, let it dry then used the paper as a paint palette for a couple of days, just something to clean off a brush or mix watercolor pencil colors on.  Next I used Jane Davenport's small face stencil to get me going in the right direction.

How do you access your Muse?  Leave a comment if you like and share your process!

So, what is YOUR favorite product to work with?

All artists have their favorite product to use.  Mine is shared on the Imagine Crafts blog today.  It's no secret that I'm in love with several of the IC/T products but I've been using this one a lot lately.  What's yours?  I'd love to hear about it.

Check out their site if you want to see not only what my favorite product is but also the other AIRs have shared their faves and have posted some wonderful projects to show how to use products you might not be familiar with.
I hope this finds you all well, I'm still unpacking here in South Carolina.  The weatherman said today that Fall was in the air......temperatures are dropping into the low 80's next week.  Can you see the big smile on my face?  Hugs ~ Renee
