This piece was so easy to create with just a few supplies and I could not be more happy with how it turned out. I love the combination of softness and grunge all in one place. The texture is perfect and I only used gesso to achieve it.
The stencils that I used in this are on sale and the window and one of the maps are free in the subscriber resource library. Also in the resource library is a coupon for the collage pak with all the maps. So much goodness free or discounted for you!
So, this piece was inspired by a couple of emails that I received a while back that I have been thinking about. I responded to them and we had a conversation about feeling stuck and not being able to move forward in certain areas or with regards to dreams and goals. And I thought that my friends that emailed me can’t be the only ones feeling this way. I get that feeling, I have been there, and can still feel stuck at times and I hate that feeling. The one thing that always…. always gets me moving, is doing something different. Taking one step in a different direction. Remember the old saying ” The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.” Our goals are a journey, are a trip, it is something we travel to and travel requires action. I share more about this in the video, but if you are feeling stuck, ask yourself, what am I doing differently, because the only impossible journey is the one we never begin.
