Bird In The Berries Art Journal Page

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Trust That It Will Come
I was traveling this week and I hadn't planned well enough ahead to do my posting in advance...but now I'm back! :)  I spent quite a bit of the day in the craft room yesterday.  I sat down not knowing what to do, but decided to just start painting deli paper again (dry wax paper).  I kept painting and painting on this one piece of paper and finally felt like the page was done.  Again, I had no idea what I was going to be doing with the paper or where it might end up.  I just sat down and trusted that somehow something would come because I was willing to show up and just begin.  As I was finishing the page, the idea of using the paper to create a collage bird popped into my head.  I made a template and cut out the bird.  Then I used some of my art tape to make a wing and tail feathers.  I sprayed a background and then was inspired to carve a quick stamp that has 2 branches on it.  Once the branches were stamped and the bird added, I was led to grab another piece of art tape I had made and began cutting tiny circles and adding them to the branches.  This page taught me that my willingness to trust may very well be rewarded!!!!
