GPP No.56 ~ I’m a Believer

Last month (I’m a little behind!) Michelle Ward challenged us to review what kind of artists we are and what our artistic beliefs are, in Crusade no 56 – I’m a Believer.

Using a background created in a¬†previous¬†challenge, I’ve journalled my artistic beliefs.

I do believe I am an artist!

Happy Crusading!

MMM Believe

This weeks Mixed Media Monday challenge is to use the word “Believe”, which I thought would be simple, as I use the word quite often…but being challenged with the word alone, there were many, many options and it was hard to choose one.

Scrapbooking paper was adhered with double sided tape (don’t have to wait for it to dry!) and Gesso’d over (this takes the brightness out of the paper). I then stuck squares of text in a row and painted over them again with Gesso. Stamped various alphabet sets with Staz-on. I don’t think it’s finished but don’t know what else to add. I was thinking butterflies but that seemed too cute.

Your thoughts are most welcome; please leave a comment.
