I was inspired to be creative last week. Not a standard variety creative (because what I do every day IS creative) but an over the top "I want to make art" creative. Now I am not the pick up a paintbrush or pencil and draw kind of artist....my Right side of the Brain just doesn't work in that way. The best sketching I can do is stick figures, squiggly lines, and one dimensional boxes.
The Inspiration: Part One ~ A beautiful piece of art by "Art by Tara Houston" (HERE) caught my eye the moment I saw it. The beauty and wonderment spoke to me of the magic and cleansing power of the sea. It sparked in me a desire to find a warm beach somewhere and meditate.
The Colors & Design: Beachy Blues with sprays of white crashing on the brown sandy beaches.
Thankful for a fragrance that behaved well I was able to have plenty of time to create this ambitious design
Working with multiple styles of pouring methods this design incorporates layers, swirls, and textured tops.
The results were a beautiful piece of soap art. Which just goes to show you that just because I didn't pick up a brush.....doesn't mean that I didn't create art.
Enjoy the Soap Art as much as I enjoyed making it.... It will be a very limited edition summer soap with only 8 bars available in late June.
