Good Morning Creatives!
I LOVE this stencil! She just looks so happy and joyful, so I wanted to make her look like she was the kind of person who just REALLY enjoys life.
Black Fine Tip Sharpie
PrismaColor Color Pencils
Tim Holtz “Small Talk” Stickers
I wanted her hair to reflect her joyful nature….bright, funky and fun. I used a medium turquoise, a lime green and a bright yellow, that I blended together with a PrismaColor Blender pencil.
Food for Thought
Along with her joyful looks, I wanted her to say something…maybe put a little challenge out into the universe:
DO MORE THAN EXIST
DO YOUR BEST
DO WHAT YOU LOVE
I think they are all connected in a way….especially if you read them from the bottom to the top.
If you do what you LOVE…you will always want to do your best.
If you are doing your BEST…you will thrive in your life instead of just existing.
And it all comes back around…if you are MORE than EXISTING…you will LOVE life more and the cycle continues.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project and you are CHALLENGED to THRIVE in your life and not just exist.
Until next time,
