Traveling solo

portrait 1

My holiday to Japan is the first trip I have taken by myself (and met a friend there).
I didn’t really think about the fact that I was traveling alone until I was on the plane to Japan and sat next to a woman who, when I said I was traveling alone, said ‘oh gosh you’re brave, I couldn’t do it’. It hadn’t struck me as anything until then.

I found that traveling alone – catching airplanes, trains & buses, experiencing other languages & cultures opens your eyes to a whole new part of your personality. It was interesting seeing how I felt along the way: what scared me, made me laugh or cry, or made me happy or excited.
I learn’t a lot about myself and how I handled different situations – parts of it definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone which I loved and other times were easy.
I think it’s really important to have these experiences in your life even if, at the time, it’s super scary!
Just a little thought I had on my travels… =)

Refocusing

Bec 2 Bec 1

When I stop and look at what I’ve achieved since starting Clouds of Colour, I cannot believe it has only been 18 months. All the art, crafts, photography and life moments I have captured in such a short amount of time. It’s been such an inspirational and beautiful journey.
Over the last few months I have been thinking about the blog, it’s content and where I want it to go. I want to share more of my art with you all and to do that I need to spend more time creating it! So over the next few weeks it may be slightly quieter on here while I sort new content ideas, update etsy with new and exciting products and overall – focusing on producing art.
I’ll still be here checking out all of your wonderful blogs and replying to the comments, just not posting as much each week. My little winter break!
Thank you all so much for the support. You can follow me on Facebook and Instagram for daily updates! And of course… I will be updating you every Friday with my Instagram snaps =)xobec


Currently: Art in Window display

Just a quick update about what Im currently working on for Clouds of Colour! Every year Nelson holds an Arts Festival where local artists and musicians showcase their work and a wide range of theatre, dance, music, workshops and film is put on. This year I will be taking part in what is called Art in Windows where local stores showcase a local artist and let them put together a display in the shopfront window. It is a really amazing opportunity to get your art out into the community. I am soooo excited to have been chosen! So this week im busy organising, printing and getting together my display. Keep an eye out for the final result photos! xo Bec
