I fail every time at this challenge! I want to get this so badly, but maybe the challenge itself needs more flexibility?? I can’t seem to find 15 minutes every single day to practice my watercolor. I am painting… I’m painting many things… But I wanna learn more about watercolor!

So, maybe instead of continuing with the same challenge and getting the same results, I need to actually have more compassion for myself and change my process. #WIP #WatercolorChallenge #Mindset

No sewing!! Yay! I made 3 easy DIY totes using a simple square piece of my fabric, printed from my art. Question for you: Should I print my fabric in cotton? If so, what type? Should I print on satin?

The prints are so beautiful! I’m looking for ways to use the fabric in other ways than just home decor.

After feeling isolated and lonely after years of working my tail off, I still had this desire to create every possible hour of every day of every week of every month. I refused to give up because creativity has always calmed any chaos going on around me.

The shift started when my courage became larger than my fear. I chose to embrace my unique style of painting and let my instincts take the lead, and I learned to quiet the self doubt. This shift was not easy, but crucial in continuing my journey as an online business.

Courageous expression set my creative wings free, and I have not stopped since. I created what I couldn’t find: a compassionate community that understood kindness, support, and the commitment needed to actively pursue a creative lifestyle.

We are coming up on my 7th year as a mentor in our Creative Connection. Now, I have the privilege of working with women all over the world who are where I have been and they don’t have to do it alone.🩵

Your creative process looks different than mine. Each of us has a creative flow, a rhythm guiding our next move.

If your creativity were a song, what would we hear?

Discount store dress makeover 🎨
1️⃣ rescue a secondhand dress or find one in the back of your closet.
2️⃣ protect the layers of fabric by using cardboard in between.
3️⃣ apply your paint mixture. ( see previous reels for those details.)
4️⃣ now, you’re a designer!

Reveal at the end of the video! Exclusively for @revelandravel 👈🏻 Now, I’m thinking maybe I should just paint dresses for all of the wedding guests?! I’ve rescued another from the dreaded “back of the closet and forgotten” section. You know the one.🖤
No.6 in this collection is my black and white combo I think I’ll call…”Summer IT List”.

🖤 This is so unlike me! I never paint black and white but the navy and white turned out so beautifully, I’m going to take on the classics! I have a tip for you.👇🏻
🖤 Start with really thin paint and build up some shadow layers of paint before jumping into the thicker paint. You may find you like that design best. #SaveAdress #EcoFashion

I have to DIY paint another! This blush pink dress is from a discount store. No one wanted it so I’m hoping I can give it a redesign and someone will fall in love with it!

I did it!! Do you think this will make a good dress to wear to my nephew’s wedding? I really love the idea of creating something original and unique.

This combines some of my favorite things: flowers, blue and white, dresses and painting AND pockets.

Many dresses like this are worn one time. I’m making it my mission to give formalwear another opportunity to shine. See more 👉🏻 @revelandravel

I’m breaking up with boring, too, so there’s that.

Wish me luck! I was way too scared to paint my Mother of the Groom dress, although my painted shoes and handbag turned out beautifully! My nephews wedding is coming up this fall so I’m going to paint my ‘Auntie of the Groom’ dress!😄 I’m thinking a cream floral pattern???

I painted my old grey suede boots teal! Yes I was nervous I might ruin them but I also hadn’t worn these for over three years, so why not try?? This was a super easy DIY shoe hack! Products are DIY Paint and available on my site. #PaintedShoes #ShoeHack #BlueBoots #ShoeMakeover ...

The trick is to water down the paint and let it saturate or dye the fabric. This is No. 1 of 5 in my newest collection, inspired by the warm summer evenings with a bit of a twinkle. ✨

They’re just suede boots, right? I haven’t worn them in awhile but I remember them to be very comfortable. Now, to choose a color of @diypaintbydebisdesigndiary Maybe Cherry Picked? Or Bohemian Blue?? #PaintedShoes #SuedeBoots #DIYPaint ...

You asked to see my Mother of the Groom dress… here it is plus the shoes and handbag I painted to match using acrylic and alcohol inks. I might be hooked on this designing thing! P.S. I found a different vintage handbag because I still think the bag is too pink…☺️ Thanks for all encouragement! #MOG #HandPaintedShoes #DIYdesigner #PaintedAccessories #DIY #WeddingStyle ...

I painted my Vans! This was so easy and such a great hack! Here are 3 things I learned as I painted my 4th pair of shoes.
👟 Use less water next time.
👟 I like the white laces better after dyeing the last two sets.
👟 Now, I need a Blue Iris pair of suede boots! ( next up! )

You know I’ve been obsessed with painting dresses for over 2.5 years now but I’m also really loving the idea of “Fashion Flowers”! Can we make this a thing?! #Newbie #FashionFlowers #MadeTVmaker #MadeTVMayFlowerChallenge @madetv.network #BloomingFlowers ...

I painted another pair of shoes!! This was easier than I expected but it took me 6 YEARS to figure out how to get away with wearing these cute Keds again! Here’s what I learned:
1. Pick your favorite color first!
2. Wet the fabric so the color glides on easier!
3. Less is best…you can add a 2nd coat if needed ( I only painted 1 )
4. Pink laces instantly elevate any outfit!

My Mother of the Groom accessories turned out beautifully, BUT the handbag may be a fail. I have to wait to get my dress back from alterations ( my mom ☺️ ) but I think it’s now too fuchsia for the dress. Bummer! This was a simple easy was to upcycle my shoes and handbag, though! I’ll definitely be doing this again with the inks!
