"New Beginnings" is the theme this month at Anything But A Card. I don't really like New Years Resolutions because I feel guilty when I can't keep it...lol.. so for the past few years I have been adopting a word to inspire me throughout that year. For this new year I have decided on "Breathe".
Life can sometimes be pretty hectic and throw you speed bumps along the way that can cause all kinds of chaos. So I am going to try to remember when LIFE HAPPENS... just BREATHE, Relax, Chill, Stay Calm.
I used a burlap canvas for the base and dry brushed white acrylic paint on it here and there. Then using my Dylusion Sprays, I applied Cut Grass, London Blue & Fresh Lime randomly on the canvas. I created the heart with a piece of styrofoam, I cut it in the shape of a heart then mod podged sheet music paper and my quote over the entire surface. Sprayed this with Lindy's Stamp Gang Landlubber Green. Using Blue Fern Chipboard frame, I painted this white and then mixed white acrylic paint with Viva Stone Effect Paste and applied to the frame to give texture. After dried I applied Tea Dye Distressed Ink to the top. Using Glue N Seal I applied my title and some sequins. The twigs were from a tree outside that were glued on using my glue gun.
I also just love this quote from Elie Wisel which reminds me to not waste a second. Life is too short so embrace it ! Jump on over to ABAC challenge blog and play along with this month's theme and download your creation to inspire us all. And while your at it don't forget to "Breathe"
