My way of dealing with emotional things is through Art. I love to create as I talk to God and meditate on my feelings. I find that it helps me to focus my energies and clear my head. I feel like God is guiding the creativity, instead of myself.
Brittany, my daughter, saw that I was emotional, and she joined in to help me create this piece as a tribute to Liz. It was so nice to have her finger paint with me.
From Flamingo Scraps: Prima Build A Swirl Stamps, Ranger: Distress Ink - Picked Raspberry, Claudine Helmeth Matt Medium. Other: Paint, Molding Paste, Hymnal, Sizzix Wings die Cut, Faber Castell PITT artist pens in light Cobalt Turquoise, and Black, Windser Newton Irrodescent Medium.
Liz will forever be in my heart, and written around the heart are some thoughts I had of Liz and the way she lived her life. The clouds are made with molding paste, and the wings were cut from a sizzix die from hymnal pages I used "Beyond the Sunset" and "Sweet By and By", Then blended them into the canvas with irredescent medium.
Do you create when you are feeling emotional? I felt at peace when this was finished, and Liz got her "Momma Tonya Original."
Thanks for stopping in today,
