This week's challenge for 52 Weeks of Creative Abundance was to complete the sentence " Today I am going to allow myself to....." With it being a new year and wanting to get past 2012 I immediately finished with MOVE FORWARD! We then were given an assignment to make a tag to remind us individually what allow means to us...
I had found this card awhile back and loved the image. Inside it says "When I grow up, I want to be a little girl". It seemed to fit the idea of moving forward and just having fun.
While the instructions were to create our tag with white colours I did improvise a bit. I gessoed (sp?) the background and elements of the graphic to tone down the colours (pic looks darker than it really is). Lots of embellishments to give dimension and the feeling of movement.
I actually quite like how it turned out. And it fits well in my journal. Have not decided yet what will go on the other page.
To all my virtual peeps - I hope you are having a very good first day of the new year. I am grateful for all of you and your friendship. Looking forward to lots of lovely things in 2013. Enjoy. Jewels.
