StencilGirl & Seth Apter WOW Blog Hop & Giveaway
The start of school has me pining for more creative time. If your week was anything like mine then you are probably mentally exhausted. I wanted to create but my brain was going all sorts of directions. Having to force myself to sit down and paint is not my norm, especially since I have just come off a month with zero creative time. I can’t create when my brain is in mommy mode and it seems that everything I touch, I destroy, so I usually don’t bother. But this week, I didn’t feel the pressure to create something amazing so I gave it a try and it was actually relaxing.
If you want to see what I made in my creative time this week, check out my post HERE.
This year has been unlike any other but I have found so many blessings amidst the confusion. I have found myself considering options, especially in schooling, that I never thought possible. We had the option to send our kids to school, but with all the chaos in our state, we chose to keep them home. It greatly diminishes my creative time when I am answering questions from 3 different people ALL. DAY. LONG. but I am learning that art is not my first or even my second priority. Juggling my schedule has become a daily task and I look forward to days where a spontaneous gap of time pops up to allow for some sort of creativity. My favorite phrase this year is: Day by Day.
So, despite the craziness of 2020, I hope you are taking the time to re-evaluate and find blessings amid the chaos.
Leave a comment and tell me about one blessing that has come out of 2020 for you.
Creating the Cover
I went around the edges with black gesso to create a border.
I used the Copper embossing with the stencil and painted the leaves. These were used to embellish the cover along with a chipboard oval embossed with the Tokyo stencil. The Seth Apter Stencil was embossed on the book paper.
And here is the finished cover.
