Find Yourself Deep WithinPosted: September 29, 2014
I tend to be a very emotional person. I’m sensitive to a fault, and sometimes things get a little out of control in my head. I know these things make me good in the fine arts. I sing with deep passionate emotion, I make art that means something….that isn’t just something I want to impress people with. Sometimes I grow tired of just trying to capture attention for my talents, but at the same time, I do like to share it and be loved for what I’ve created. The older I’ve gotten, the more I like what I find inside, when I look deeply. As a young woman, I only saw faults, and really I had very few physical faults, but I was not what I am inside now. Difficult time have made me strong, and wise, and in touch with what I want from myself, and the rest of my life. So, I created this layout. Reminding myself to stop disliking what I have on the surface, and to look to my heart and soul. Much deeper inside is the good stuff. 🙂
I used this month’s Scraps of Darkness kit, Weathered and Worn. The colors in this kit are my jam. The honey in my tea. 🙂
I love the pale blues in the Fab Scraps papers in the kit. The birds in flight, the calmness. I grabbed those in my design and ran with them. I have discovered I can take any paper flower and scrunch it a bit, adding mists and paints for maximum happiness.
Most of all, this layout is about layers. It’s about the layers I peel back to reveal myself….to myself. Just like I do in my art.
Thanks so much for having a look today, and I hope you’re having a mystical, magical autumn.
