I made this journal page for Limor Webber’s Mixed Media Challenge.
It’s for a friend,another artist, who hasn’t been having the best of times lately and it is meant to be uplifting. The stamp says”to be all that is possible,we must attempt the impossible to be all that we can be,we must dream of being more” and is from the Tim Holtz collection.
I also wrote,” Find the Beauty in life and cling to it with all your might.”
The recycled elements I used were pages that I had torn out from a book when I was making an art journal and I used the back of a birthday card to draw the girl on.
(Materials used were acrylic paint,Sharpie marker,ball point pen, card stock,book pages,Tim Holtz stamp and Ranger Distress marker in weathered wood,studio g ink in purple and Smooch in a teal blue color.)
The THEME: “GIVING BACK”
Limor’s Challenge Guidelines:
Create a project of your choice -Canvas, Art Journal, Tag, Card, Altered item etc.
Project must include at least 1 Recycled household item ( Example: Toilet paper roll, soda can, bottle cap, cereal box etc)
Include at least 1 stamp in your project ( Of course we would love to see you use Unity Stamps but not required)
Theme: this project must be for someone in your life that could use their spirits lifted or someone you just knew this would make a difference with if they received something from you. It could also be someone you know that has been active in your community and making a difference, you decide.
Have a blast!!!!!
