This is the piece I felt deserved it's own post. It was weeks in the making after I saw a small nick knack piece at a local grocery store. It made me happy but the price tag didn't especially for something so small. Plus I don't really have the space so it just made more sense to take the time to make a canvas.
Christy Tomlinson in the classes I took from her this year. Layer upon layer, with hidden messages if you look closely. People may never really see them but they mean something to me. This was a healing piece, a testament of sorts to show how far I have come in my life. Again it just makes me completely happy!
I've always been a detail orientated person. That is what you will see when you look at it. After months of it being completed I still can't help but look at it and see something new. Did I really put that there or is it just something that happened? The hardest part?? Waiting for each layer to completely dry! I thought sometimes I would go crazy. You can't help the urge to touch but then you remember you may just mess it up, so you walk away. Trust me just walk away from the project, if you face that! You will be happier!!
Is there something you will hold onto tightly as we go into the holidays, then into a New Year?
Whatever it happens don't forget to STOP and Enjoy this day that you have been given.
