Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Do Something You Don't Feel Like DoingI spent some indoor time on the couch this past weekend and the tv came on (I hadn't watched any tv in awhile). I was very excited that the first thing I saw when I turned on the tv on Saturday was the prologue for the Tour de France! I love watching the Tour and find it incredibly motivating! After the Tour segment was over, on came the men's gymnastics trials for the Olympics. Are you sensing a theme here (other than the part that I was watching all men)? After watching people exercise for an hour and a half on tv, I had the thought that maybe I should try doing a little exercise too. My exercise, other than walking Buddy, has been sporadic at best lately. And I've gotta admit, the last thing I wanted to do at that moment was get my butt off the couch and go exercise. But somehow I did it. I picked myself up off the couch, put on my workout clothes, placed a P90X2 video in the player downstairs and got to work! I can't say my motivation increased much during the workout itself, but what did that matter. I was exercising and getting it done! I have to admit that afterwards I had a big smile on my face! I did it!!!!! Sometimes it's worth doing something you just don't feel like doing - it can really boost your mood! Give it a try!
Here is a video to show you how I used an acrylic block and some ink to create the color wash background in today's card. Enjoy!!!!
