I love it when you create a piece and it feels like home. It feels like an old friend. That’s what happened as I created this. It just felt like me.
I had a great quote that my assistant gave me that inspired it and then the vision of what I wanted it to look like ….. helped it all come together.
I knew the stencil I wanted to use but it was a bit small for all the layers I wanted to put down… So I share how I made it bigger in the video. It’s a really great way to be able to use your stencils even if they don’t quite fit your project.
I also used a bunch of different paints that I don’t usually reach for and that happened by a bit of my creative ADD… you’ll see in the video.
The quote: Faith is knowing there is an ocean when you can only see the stream. There are so many meanings to this quote but I share in today’s video how there have been so many times in my life when I couldn’t even see the stream.. that it was just a dry creek bed.
But I knew deep down in my heart there was something bigger and better waiting for me.
I hope you enjoy the video!
