Oh the joy that this piece brought me! And stenciling with acrylic inks was so much fun!
I chose so many things in this piece that represented the inspiration. The texture and grunge, the vintage papers–they all represent who I am.
The bright bold colors also bring meaning to this piece.
I started reading a new book this week by Luvvie Jones called the The Fear- Fighter Manual: Lessons from a Professional Troublemaker.
I’m only on chapter two, but this chapter makes me cheer! It made me sit a little taller with a bit more confidence. The title – “Be too much”.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told I’m too much _____ . (you fill in the blank) Because I’ve heard it all.
But Luvvie goes on to say in the chapter, that thing that people say is too much….. is often our superpower!
I share more about it in the video… and hopefully, it will make you cheer too!
