Behind the Art with Heather

Yay! It's April! I'm so looking forward to spring and some nice weather… and also sharing my projects I made with this month's kit entitled "Celebrate."

So without further adieu, here is my favorite project I made this month: an art journaling page.

Making art pages is so much fun. So liberating. There's just something about using some paint and getting messy that is different from just scrapbooking. 

I loved using the arrow template from the Crafter's Workshop (included in the kit) to watercolor the background of my page. I thought the white spaces between the arrows looked too white, so I used a small paint brush and the Tumbled Glass distress paint (also included in the kit) to paint in-between the arrows.

I used the stars and sequins from the kit to signify shining your light. Being yourself. Plus I think stars are little symbols of celebration in themselves, so that works too. ;) And did you notice the lines I wrote my quote on? They're not straight. They're wavy. I did that to signify that life may be up and down, but you are still YOU. You can still be the fabulous you that you are. That bright colors I used also reflect happiness. 

This month I used our Pinterest board to inspire a couple of my projects. If you haven't before, check out our boards. We have a board for every kit! I personally think this month's is extra inspiring. ;)

I loved this quote from Dr. Seuss. 

I mean, what's better than celebrating YOU?! Celebrating you and your accomplishments and your whole being! I think it's a pretty cool concept myself. :) This quote just screamed out to me, "Celebrate YOU!" Be happy with yourself and how you are. Don't worry about others. I've heard it said that happiness starts with yourself. Be determined that you will love yourself! 

The world needs YOU. 100% you. Be YOU. Celebrate YOU. 

Alright. You've had your pep talk. Have a great day! :)
