Wish upon a star... with Anything But a Card Challenges
Hello! It is week number three of our 'Celestial' challenge and my turn to share. It was so hard for me to narrow down the direction I wanted to go with this theme. With Christmas right around the corner, I could go with a Christmas star creation, or maybe something with angels and the heavens... But in the end I decided on something a little motivating to place in my crafty work area to remind me of where I am and the direction I would like to go. I created an ATC to add to my growing collection (really need to do something special with them...) and decided to play with some long neglected supplies too. Once again, I have found my photography skills severely lacking. This really sparkles with the gold and glitter, but the photo turned out very 'eh'.
I colored the background of a piece of watercolor paper with some black, purple, and blue pastels. Then I pulled out my stars mask and dug out my bottle of gold Smooch that I've had for ages. After the ink dried, I stamped my mantra words for the coming year. The whole thing was treated to a smearing of dazzling details to give it just a little more sparkle.
The three words are a gentle reminder to slow down and not allow myself to become so busy that I don't have time for dreaming, creating, and inspiring.
I will leave you with a quote and the hope that you will find time to play along with us at Anything But a Card. You still have a week left to share your inspiration with us! Have a wonderful week!
