Paint Some Red Up In The Sky

So many blog posts happening in my head.
So many things I want to share.
So bear with me as I share in dribs and drabs.
As I can…
This page was the result of a little playing
Trying something different
and guess what?!?
I ‘m going to share that with you!


The background was created using a “Chickenwire Reversed” stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop
I’ve used texture paste, on kraft cardstock, over a stencil, to create the hexagons.
Then painted some of the hexagons with different mist colours.
I loved how it turned out.
Thought it was awesome.
But then worried that if I continued to “do something” with the paper
that the awesome might not be so awesome any more.
So I took a breath and cut around the shape and used it as my background.


I love how it turned out.
I love the white.
I love the colour.
I love the kraft.


I love these My Minds Eye button.


and I really really do love the way this page turned out.
I’m really really  glad I stepped out of my comfort zone.
And I think my awesome is still awesome.
Do you need to step out of your comfort zone?
Do you have something awesome that could be even awesome-er if only you took a breath and jumped in?
What is holding you back?

Pin It Now!
