Let Go and Trust Yourself
This week as we continue on this path of Creativity…we are going to learn to LET GO. The very best way I know to do that is by gathering up various mediums, a few different substrates and get to work!
Our goal this week is to create 10 layered backgrounds for our journals, cards or just to enjoy. There should be very little thought put into this rather the entire objective of this exercise is to be intuitive.
What you need
*copy paper, deli paper, watercolor paper and/or your journal
*acrylic paint, watercolor paint, gesso, watercolor crayons, etc.
*stencils, stamps, masks
*markers, paint pens, pencils
*patterned paper, book paper
*glue stick or Mod Podge
Gather your supplies and block out an hour or so to do nothing but create! Turn on your favorite music, show or just enjoy the silence. Begin putting down paint, papers or whatever inspires you. Your goal is to create at least three layers per background…not thinking at all about your outcome…just focusing on the act of doing.
