I did A lot of Art today.I guess I needed to keep a lot of craziness away? i was ancy for the lesson and I really did not want to be thinking thoughts so I filled up my head with art. plus I had things I wanted to try some new techniques so I did that as well. I am having one of those things are kind of scattery today as well as you will see and hear by my video. :)
So I tried the new Glimmer Mist sprays I got with some new screens. I like this whole negative screen effect and how this concept works. I have seen this in other art like on pillows and on canvas but it has been awhile. I would like to find other screens but the thing I was thinking is how cool would it be to make your own screens? Like I have my own business and how cool would it be to make a screen for my business name and spray that onto art? Or what if you had a logo and did a negative cut out of the logo and sprayed that? wouldn't that be cool? Yeah, I thought so too.
The Truth says "You are Amazing.You are Powerful. You are Strong. you Can Do This!" I chose that one because the designs I chose were simple but powerful and I thought just like Melody says these Truth cards can be something we can put on our desks and something we can look at and remind us when we need them. I thought, well this could apply to anything and would be a good one for me or anyone even!
ThenI redid the cover on my Truth Keeper. This is where I keep all those unused truths that I keep cut up. This is what it looked like before I recovered it. It was a blank journal and it said The Story of My Life (funny huh?)
|I glue or Mod Pdge the unused Truths in there. Sometimes I Write in there later or use them elsewhere like my Journal later.|
|Sometimes I just write in it if I feel it|
|I added a little HELLO sticker|
|A Picture of Me =Happiness|
|I used a Hallmark card to cover the book and wrapped it around and trimmed it to fit|
|me at 18 years, me at 40 years-same smile :)|
I used the Mod podge srakle to keep the sparkle going since the card had sparkle on it. this was actually a Valentine card but I had to have it for this book. It was a $3.99 card and I knew when I bought it I was using it for this1 Is that funny or what? To buy a card SPECIFICALLY to take apart for something else? You know you are a serious artist when you are willing to spend money just so you can destroy it for art! LOL
The card jumped out at me. It was pink, there was a cute little park bench. Park Benches=Glee. Most people might not even know that. Hmm. one of those things Melody was talking about. Things you didn't even thing about coming out in your thoughts.
When I look at this card I think of Happiness I see pink, sparkles, pink and red hearts, a nice white wrought iron bench with fancy scrolls and a quaint little love pillow, pretty pink bows and pink trees.
This image makes my heart smile with happiness.
~It is like Happiness wrapped up in a hug~
