Painted Paper and Some Stamp Carving
Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: There's Magic In Motion
Yesterday I made myself very proud! I swam just over 2 miles in the pool! I still can't believe it! The swim workout I did included some sprints and lots and lots of laps :) There was something magical about the motion. The more I swam, the more I relaxed. The more I began to feel natural in the water. And I realize the same thing is true about my art. I start out and things feel tense - tight - like they are not flowing. But, I keep moving - I apply more paint to a page; stamp an image; doodle a bit - I create a space where magic can happen. Just by engaging in the motion you let the Universe know that you are open to the magic.
Today I am sharing some of the results of my motion. Two painted pieces of dry wax paper (deli paper) that will be turned into something :) As I was painting the pages I had the urge to do some stamping on the pages, which led me to carve a few stamps of my own. I hadn't sat down to carve stamps - the carving came to me because I stayed in motion and I waited for the magic to happen! I hope you have a wonderfully creative weekend filled with magic!!!!!!
