I love the texture on this piece! Super heavy gesso is not my first choice when grabbing for things to create texture, but it was on my desk so I grabbed it and boy am I glad I did! I also love it when I’m drying with my heat tool and I get up close to the gesso and it bubbles… Yes, please! More texture!
I used my raw umber and glazing medium heavily in this piece because I wanted it to feel very grungy and to go with the stencils that I used for this piece.
Then I got super excited when I started experimenting with the new butterfly stencil in the shop. I used it like a stamp and off camera went a little crazy experimenting with it! You are gonna love this stencil!
The inspiration came from the book that I’m ready by Rachel Hollis “Girl stop apologizing” She is incredibly motivating, but she says talks about the excuses we tell ourselves to not go after our dreams. The recurring theme is “if not now then when” I share more about this in the video.
But today… Let go of whatever voice are telling you to not go after your dreams… whatever they are. Start today, because not is your time to fly!
