Don't you just love color? This month at GCD Studios we were given this picture as an inspiriation...
This just makes me want to paint something! If you ever come over to my house you will never find any white walls! (ok maybe under the sinks!) So I was totally inspired to break out my inks and mists!
This was a plain piece of white cardstock when I started! I also inked the letters and the ribbon.
My hidden journal says:
I have seen this face many times, when you are aprehensive about something. What I love about you is that only need a little reassurance and you are quickly back to your happy self! You don't trust your own judgement yet, but you do trust the adults in your life to steer you in the right direction. You my dear are like the characters in the Wizard of OZ, Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion; you already have disernment, you just need someone to point it out to you!
In your own time you will blossom into an amazing young lady.
I had to give you a close up to this ink/misting/stamping/doodling! (SO fun!) I actually cut out the large butterfly from a Artsy Urban paper by Melody Ross and used it as a mask/stencil. The bird, butterfly, scroll, borders and brad are all from the Artsy Urban collection at GCD Studios!
Did you notice the very cool sparkly effect on the birdie border and the butterfly? Isn't it awesome that it comes that way? All I have to do is adhere it!
