Week 16’s Mixed Media Altered Playing Card Challenge presented by Maremi’s Creative Cafe on Facebook was P – Peace.
Peace for me is very personal and faith-filled, However, I have chosen to keep that private.
So, I painted one of my calmest relaxing things to do. Blowing bubbles. However, I wanted a quote to go with it. Week 17 is Q-Quote, the only perk to being behind.
My daughter’s best friend graduated last week. and I got her a great card with a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson. When I researched the internet for the quote I found three that I really love.
The one for peace is “Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. – Ralph Waldo Emerson.” We have to search and initiate Peace. I felt that the bubbles imagery didn’t fit this quote.
I bought a new art tool, Jane Davenport’s Inkredible Pen. While practicing I wrote the above phrase onto a piece of watercolor, decorating it with Distress Inks, Viva Decor and Stazon Ink.
