I’m Carolyn Dube, a self taught mixed media art adventurer who has rediscovered play. I play with every color of the rainbow, avoid rules whenever possible, and let the little kid inside of me free. Visit the blog where I’m sharing the journey at http://acolorfuljourney.com/ and get my newsletter with downloadable Sparks of Art-spiration and more at http://acolorfuljourney.com/?page_id=...
You can find my articles in magazines such as Somerset Studio and Cloth Paper Scissors, spot me teaching in person and online workshops, designing stencils for StencilGirl Products, and sharing the message of O.O.P.S.
What does O.O.P.S. stand for? It stands for Outstanding Opportunities Presenting Suddenly.
Those “failures” and “mistakes” that I had so harshly criticized myself about actually became true gifts as soon as I started saying O.O.P.S. Try saying Oops in an angry tone. It makes it even more silly! I just can’t take myself seriously when I say Oops which is just what I needed to play. I began to play, to have fun, and to embrace all of my “mistakes”.
