For this week’s prompt, think about the word being and what it means to you. This might mean being your self and what makes you who you are, the things you do, or being present in the moment – it might mean just getting lost in the art of creating this week – that’s perfectly OK too! As always, prompts are completely up to interpretation.So with those thoughts in mind,
this is my entry for Week 2.
I began by painting my used manilla file folder with pink and white acrylic paints. I used a paint brush because I wanted to see the brush strokes and the mottled colors, rather than using a faux credit card, which saves paint, but doesn't produce the same effect.
I found all these images in a book I was given years ago that has a bit of a steampunk feel to it.
I had no clever way to introduce the week number, so placed it in the tab area.
And of course, I DO believe in myself. I often doubt my art, but never doubt who I am or what direction my life is headed. I try to act responsibly in everything I do, including my internet actions. I also try to always be positive, even when I would rather crawl in bed (due to illness) and pull the covers over my head. You won't find a pity party here, folks. You'll have to go elsewhere for that.
Have a great week, and be true to yourself. Please join Chelle and others at Journal 52 this week. As always, I'm super grateful for your incredible comments. They mean more to me than you know.
