As I’m working my way through the 30 Day Coloring Challenge, I’m trying new things. Stretching my creativity. Today was all about enjoying imperfection.
I think we all work so hard to colour inside the lines, to come up with the perfect design or the perfect card that we forget just to enjoy the process. So today I didn’t worry about things and just dabbed on colours a bit haphazardly and just had fun. There are white spaces without colour, and there is colour outside the lines…and that’s perfectly ok. Life isn’t perfect. Mother Nature isn’t perfect.
Today I played with the Nuvo Shimmer Powders again. This time I just mixed them with water to use like a paint. Wish I could get a picture of the shimmer…but not today…
To add a bit of interest to the white space I used some thinned out Shimmer Powder on a just damp brush. That way it didn’t run under the stencil. The final touch was a smattering of gems.
Back soon with more my sweet friends.
