As I mentioned in an earlier post....I am having knee replacement surgery on Monday. I am feeling a bit stressed! So I thought maybe a little painting and mixed media in my journal might calm my nerves a little bit.
The girl is a stamp that I purchased from a local artist from
NC called "Enchanted Designs" by Juen. Isn't she pretty? I paper pieced her dress, and added some ribbon and lace. The white stenciling was done with Fiber Paste and the MFT Concentric Circles(Mona Pendleton Design). The orange stenciling was also Fiber Paste, but had some orange acrylic paint mixed in. That stencil is another MFT MPD called Graduated Diamonds. I stamped the butterflies and then did a little yellow & orange color washing on their wings. To me, the butterflies mean hope and no more awful arthritis pain!!!
I was inspired by the colors for the current
I am hoping in 6-8 weeks after my surgery, I will be making another page in my journal that will be all sunshine and roses!!!!!
I am gonna also link this up to the current Simon Says Stamps Monday challenge:
