So Week 2 of Being Me we were tasked to create a personal manifesto. I combined that with SOC week one colors turquoise and citron:
And if these statements sound familiar, most of them came right out of my One Little Word "DARE" intentions for 2013!
Week 3 of Being Me was another writing exercise, the end result of which was to create a list of 5 things we will say "YES" to - which should be the core things that we need most in our life right now. I limited the list to 3 because the way I wrote it, it covered a LOT... and combined it with SOC week two colors hot pink and orange:
This mixed media page started with stamping textures on a white background, using magenta mixed with varying amounts of white. Next I added in a watered-down "wash" of pink and oranges (almost coral). Then I decoupaged on several different bits of tissue paper and decorative paper napkin. Added more texture on top of that with pink and white stamping with found objects and hand-painted the word "Yes". I really was able to "get into the zone" while creating this one and was thrilled with the final piece.
