I am so happy and honoured to be a Pinworthy Inspiration at A Vintage Journey today.
Their current theme is Words that are so Special.
This is a piece I prepared for Words That Are So Special Challenge.
I started with transferring the face image with gesso onto a cardboard (18x18 cm).
Next step was adding some texture and stenciling some texture paste. Then came the best part- inking, misting, painting! I also added some stamping, outlining with my Inktense pencil and some sequins to finish off.
I put the picture into wooden frame and added the words:
I am here
I am simply me
I am strong
I am dreaming big
I have been going through really hard times recently and had to face all sorts of problems ( I guess as we all do).
These words remind me of greeting each day with a smile, of looking forward - not back and enjoying life in every minute.
That is why they are so important to me.
