Wisdom I’ve Learned, or I Should Say Am Learning…

Video sharing 5 bits of wisdom I've learned, or am learning, while creating mixed media styleThis is what happens when I am left unattended too long…had a hard time keeping a straight face for this one as I shared 5 bits of wisdom I’ve learned or I should say am still learning in the art studio. If I could remember these in my daily art practice it would make a world of difference…

Watch 5 Bits of Wisdom from the Art Studio on YouTube.

And here’s one more bit of wisdom I would like to add that came to me after I finished the video.  When using double sided tape it works much much better if you remove the backing from both sides…and yes that was from experience….OOPS!

So what wisdom have you learned while arting and creating?

    O My God, how funny! Mainly because it’s so recognizable!!!
    Haven’t had the Mardi Gras Sneeze, but it will happen, don’t know when, but I’m sure of it!!!

  • Susie Carranza March 19, 2015, 7:31 pm

    Haha – yes!!! Let me just say that I can relate…but I haven’t experienced the Mardi Gras sneeze – yet… 😉

    I LOVED this! I am SO guilty of the glue jars and vaseline! Oh, sure…I’ll do it later. Riiiight.
    I loved this so much, in fact, that I put it on my FB page. I listed you as one of my online BFFs. Because that’s how it feels. Like I wish you could come over for a chat now and then. Know what I mean?

    unfortunately, I too “know” these bits of wisdom, but for some reason when I am creating they flow to another part of my brain. I have experienced the same situations as you, and just had to laugh when you just brought them out in the open. Maybe you will help others?

    You are the best. I am still smiling. Love your advice!

    So funny….. not done the colourful sneeze, but have prepped everything for using gold leaf, then let out a sigh, and watched the leaf waft all over the place.
    Off to share on my Fb page.

    Ms. Carolyn: Thank you so much for the so accurate and truthful 5 Bits of Wisdom information—and for the inevitable comic relief it brought. I have done every one of the first four bits of wisdom—luckily I managed to miss out on the 5th one!!! But, then, how would we ever love, love, love making art without these bits of crazy moments from time to time.

  • Cathy March 22, 2015, 7:41 pm

    Love this video!! And can relate to all of it!! But my Mardi Gras sneeze didn’t come from inks…..it came from ultra fine glitter!! hahaha
