Crafting today was REALLY fun! It was fun because I did something I am a complete novice at! Do you ever try something new and scary just to see how it turns out? I love learning new techniques, but today, I did no research - I just dove right in!
After circling the paints section at Michael's (picking up different paints with each rotation, like an indecisive vulture), I brought the colors home, and laid out the brushes and canvases. Er...
Here is what I see in a ground:
The earth one just had to look like lava at the bottom - I mean, that's what underneath us, right?? And there had to be assorted spots rising to the sky because the earth sends us nutrients.
And here's my view of the sky today:
I was thinking of the winds and clouds moving quickly and sporadically outside today. And in the pink, I saw the change to night time. It is so nice that spring is here! Last night, I spend the evening laughing with my in-laws while eating dinner and watching the breeze blow the sky into pink then dark.
And then, as it was so beautiful being on the patio, I grabbed one more canvas and splattered paint on it! Seriously, I had so much fun following curves that I saw in the paint, feeling the breeze outside. Here's what happened from all those taps of brushes:
I think I like this one the best!! :) Maybe it's just because it reminds me of enjoying the spring weather.
Now to find where to hang these sweeties up! As silly as they look, I love them! They all remind me to try new things, to not take life too seriously, and to enjoy the moment!
One day that you feel a little grumpy, or on a day that you are feeling particularly courageous, go out and try something new! It doesn't have to be big: a new dish, a new experience, a different route. It may just add some sparkle to shake up your day!
