Listening to the Inner Voice Chick...

It's been a couple of weeks since I've linked to StudioJRU~ Sneak Peek Fridays. 
There are so many talented artists there, that share their blogs 
throughout the weekend. 
It's always inspiring to see what everyone has been up to. 
I feel like I am missing  c o f f e e  with my friends 
when I haven't gotten a chance to link up and visit. 
So, today I'm sitting here with cappucino in hand, reading and sharing....

I'm getting excited about something that I have been planning for a while, 
and now am feeling like may come to fruition. 
I love to work in watercolor, and I love making my decoupage plates. 
I've been thinking about applying  m y  o w n  graphic watercolor art 
to the plates rather than the usual graphic patterned papers I find to create with. 
I have done this in the past, but with existing watercolor pieces that I'd already done. 
The difference here, is that I am actually creating the art for a specific plate, and words. 
It's coming together and feeling good.
And if it's  f e e l i n g  g o o d,  then I must 
be listening to that i n n e r   v o i c e!
(do you ever wonder what she looks like- that inner voice chick?
I wonder if she's cute- young- old- floating around or buzzing like a hummingbird- 
maybe even sporting red hair like me?)

So- this week, you get an unofficial peek at the process...
the "inner voice chick" is still giving direction, 
but I am happy with the path she's put me on.

~my graphic blooms~

~sweet little birdie~

~playing with placement~

~leaves:: one of my favorite things~

~another beginning~

All of the plates are in process- should be fun to see what develops through the week!
What does your i n n e r   v o i c e chick look like? 
I may have to paint mine- she's starting to reveal herself more and more.

p.s. a sneak peek at another "soon-to-be" listing on etsy at twig2neststudio
