Get up. Get dressed. Paint.: Simplicity quote
Page began with a quote from a Simplicity Desk Calendar. It was a week full of discouragement; leaving the teaching day feeling beaten,worthless and broken-down.
In my heart I know I am nearing the end of a career I loved but is now nothing more than testing, documenting (CYA), and babysitting.
This Tree Poem stamp was the perfect addition with the brown paper bringing out the brown wood left of the door. The mica chips conceal the corner of the quote while adding texture.
I first tried to emboss the stamp on tissue paper but it didn't turn out because the paper was too wrinkled. I tore some of the words and used them for layering. Will be using this as a new layering technique.
What messages did your heart send you this week? Are you actually listening? Please share so we can encourage each other to follow where our hearts are leading us.
