PPF #10 v.2

Thanks Kristin & Eva for another round of Paint Party Friday!
I´m taking part of Ayala Art 29 FACES in May project, so it´s been all about portraits this month. I sketch a lot while waiting for the kids at the school doors.

This is the face I was working on two weeks ago. Now I worked on the background adding some stamping, bubble wrap colouring, watercolour pencil, marker border and a quote by Pablo Picasso: When INSPIRATION comes, let her find me WORKING.
The final stage of these art journaling pages.
Want to see my table? Here it is:
P.S: my "desk" is our dining table. That means I put stuff out, work and put stuff away. My working space isn´t like that allllll the time. ;) And yes, I´m verging OCD when placing my materials in a line. :D
Now, there is something I want to say to you:
If you are coming from the PPF link, let me tell you this: YOU are one of the most interesting peeps in this world, that´s why I keep going back there. :)
 If you are coming from Jamie Ridler´s Wishcasting Wednesday: my truest gratitude for your loving & continuous support. I´m wishing for you too.
 If you are coming from Sunday Snippets: it´s sooooooo cool to get to know you and your vision of the world. Thanks for being my eyes where you are.
 If you are coming from Creative Every Day: keep creating my dear! You are making this planet a better place.
Yay for International Internet Day (May 17th)!

I love my local community too. That being said, I haven´t been able to form a local art/business tribe. I think I haven´t been asking the right questions. In a place this big there must be some "same wavelength" women. :)

It is great timing that Jennifer Louden is offering a "Learn to Create your own Mastermind Group" course! She will teach topics like the different styles of groups and how to determine what style you want, the  structures, finding the right people and how to manage the group. Groups are formed by humans, and as such they evolve and change. Lots of useful "how to"s about that too. :)  If we have met before you will certainly recognize some of the cool interviewees names and jump for joy. If we haven´t: check them out! They are awesome! Danielle LaPorte, Andrea Sher, Tanya Geisler + Rachel Cole + Kate Swoboda + Bridge Pilloud + Julie Daley + Jamie Ridler, Fabeku Fatunmise, Elizabeth Marshall, Mark Silver + Michele Christensen + Molly Gordon + Michael Bungay Stanier + Eric Klein (Louden´s group).

The dates: May 22nd & May 29th (4 pm Pacific / 7 pm Eastern) ~calls will be recorded~

 Finding the right people is nowadays the one point I need to master the most. The "more than one" group comment got my attention as I know there are people I like that have some points in common but not others and mixing and matching is an art. :D
After reading about Jennifer´s offering I met with a new mom from my girl´s class. I might be on my way! :D

I wish I am just as creative like you Paula but sadly I am not very good with crafts and design. My elder daugher draws very well though :D
