Courage... 37

Mona Pendleton | Friday, April 26, 2013 @ 11:06 AM | , , , , , ,

Hi there! I have the day off from work with a little time to spare for crafting before I spend the day running necessary errands so I pulled out my neglected small 5" x 8" art journal and created a page. One of the things I find challenging about creating "mixed media" projects is the ability to let go of the preconceived notion that everything on my project needs to be just so. That is so untrue ~ it's ok that everything doesn't line up perfectly or you have a splash of this or that here and there. I personally think that all contributes to making it look artistic and opens the creative door without any rules! Sort of going rogue if you will ;)
Here are a few details about this page: The die cut circles were made using Die-namics Circles STAX Set 1 and 2 dies, the sentiment was stamped using one of the wonderful sentiments from MFT DC Vertical Greetings and the randomly stamped text was stamped using the text image from MFT DC First Class Friend.
 I am entering this in a few challenges: The Fashionable Stamping Challenges where the theme is "Sentimental" ~ to focus on a sentiment and for color inspiration, I joined along with The Play Date Cafe:
Many thanks for visiting ~ I hope I inspired to create without any rules! LOL
Be Sweet ;)

I'm not really a mixed media fan (not good at getting messy!) but I do love seeing the work of others - this journal page is no exception Mona. Being able to let go and be free in your art is something I really admire!
