Hello my kind friends! Have you been creative? Have you been good to yourselves and allowed yourselves time to imagine/create/paint/sketch/write/design something YOU love? It’s so important to do this you know! You need to let go of all the reasons why you can’t create and give yourself permission to do what you love for a few hours a week! Put everything else aside, it’s o.k. really!! You will see! It’s a very LOUD world. You need to make a choice to turn it all off sometimes. You will benefit from it immensely and you will find that the rest of your week will be all the better for it! Do it for yourself.
I gave myself time this week to make a MIXED MEDIA Digital Collage piece…and loved every minute of it! I used my digital image “Feathered Friend”. This was a joyful piece to work on for our Textures and/or Patterns CHALLENGE this month, and I loved layering, gessoing and painting over the papers! I hope you can see this through the photo.
Gail is also sharing with us. Here is her beautiful card to inspire us this week, filled with textures and patterns! She embossed the background and used several layers of textured/patterned papers to mat the lovely coloured Lilacs image, tied it all together with a textured ribbon, and added a comforting sentiment in the corner. Just gorgeous, don’t you agree?!
