When I was describing this in the video I used the word happy way too much! But, come on this is just yummy and yes it makes me HAPPY!
When planning this piece I knew I wanted to use gold leaf, but didn’t have any, sooo I decided to make my own ‘Faux” gold leaf. I show you what I used and the experiments with products in real time.
Then I loaded it with crackle paste, crackle paint and texture sand and painted layer after layer of my favorite colors!
I also share how we are free to choose… choose how we respond in life, we get to choose how we show up in the world. Inspired by a quote by Viktor Frankl
“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
