Finding Artistic Flow

finding artistic flow, overcome creative blocks, creative self-care, self-care

Today I’m psyched to be featured as a guest on If you aren’t already familiar with Caylee, you should be.

In addition to being one of the most sweet, sincere, and organized people I know in the world, she is also one of the founders of, donates to worthy charities through her work, and is insanely creative. She is a kindred spirit because she focuses on empowering artists. (Yes, I mean you!) She’ll be a welcome addition to your set of resources for creative self-care.

Caylee invited me to use one of my favorite materials and tell a visual story about using art as self-care. (Isn’t that a cool idea?)

Of course I broke out the liquid acrylics* for this visual story-telling experience. In the post, you’ll learn a lot about how I drip, blow, and shape these crazy forms into the amazing and meaningful creatures that appear on my journal pages. I have to say, I REALLY liked what emerged and I’m excited to share it with you! If you are into learning more about using fluid paint techniques, check out my class, Fluid Art to see how to create a fluid art process in your life.

Speaking of visual story-telling, I think we should play with that idea more here on Mindful Art Studio, don’t you? Perhaps you’d like to tell a visual story of your own and share it on our private FB group, Creative Self-Care? If you need a beginning idea, here’s a few. Tell through pictures about how art is your self-care, about a time you felt really loved, or the best day you’ve had recently.

If you are interested in playing with liquid acrylics yourself, you can learn in my class, Fluid Art. You’ll learn to take advantage of the natural, organic shapes that occur in liquid paint techniques, and embellish them with simple, but gorgeous patterns. Check out the Fluid Art video right here: Fluid Art.
