During the winter, when I am inside more, I tend to get a little more creative, finding new types of art and crafts to make… I’ve been seeing these “Acrylic Art Pouring” videos on my Facebook feed and then I started watching them on YouTube. I find them quite fascinating…. in fact – I was so intrigued, I thought I would try to do this myself…. I must say – it isn’t exactly as easy as it looks! …. The photos above are some of my first tries with acrylic art pouring… I mostly tried it on 3×5 and 4×6 sized mixed media paper and blank ATC cards. There seems to be a lot of methods to the entire madness – but once you can get the hang of some of them – the outcome of the paint direction can be quite beautiful…. I hope to do much more with these – like showcasing lines of poetry on them or drawing zentangle doodles on them…. As I do more of these, I will share more creations….

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.”
Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls….
Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International.
She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein.
Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“
During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
