Hi everyone! I have another of my pages to share. This one is a journal page about not sweating the small stuff and not fearing mistakes.
All my life, I have struggled to control things that are not mine to control... Once I let go of that control and try to just go with the flow. Turning something disappointing into a positive is a skill that I have had to practice. It's hard to not feel terrible when something goes wrong but dwelling on it is not productive. I hate wasting time on things I can't control now. So, this page is about being yourself and letting things roll off your back when you feel like obsessing.
Dwelling makes you unhappy and I hate being unhappy. I want to live in today and not worry about tomorrow!
Okay, so how did I make this page? I used the floral paper as the background. The leaf mask was used with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso. I did trace the leaf onto scrap paper and used it as a solid stencil. Once dry, I drew on top of the areas with pen.
Watered down paint dripped down the page added some more color. I also used Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Whipped Spackle through a dotted stencil for more texture.
What do you do to stay happy and not obsess about wrongs or bad things? I think what we "feed" ourselves will be what thrives.
