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!!!!
