Flower #4 Delight and Brights

What a Day! It started out stress with more stress and now ending in more delight and bright.

It was freshing to sit at my table to make art and use paper materials.

Supplies:

  • Assorted decorative paper
  • Tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Water
  • Sponge brush
  • Acrylic markers

First choose the colors of the background. Layer the tissue paper on top of each other to blend colors. To layer use glue and water together and brush on paper with sponge brush then brush the tissue paper to smooth it.

Glue/water mixture. .add enough glue and water to make the glue thin, that way it is easy to spread.

Next cut out flower petal shapes in decorative paper.

Glue the petal shapes on the paper and take the glue/water mixture and go over the surface.

Let it dry. Then add details on the paper with acrylic markers.

Happy day

Caroline

Vision Board

Have you ever wondered how to make a vision board?

It is simple. There’s a few ideas I have to make one that will show you what your goals are.

Some ideas about vision boards:

  1. Choose a specific goal such as a career board, vacation board, home board etc
  2. Use categories to make your vision board. The entire board will capture one image for each category.
  3. Meditate on your vision board. What you meditate on can be the focus of the vision board.

Vision Board Supplies

  • Magazines
  • Access to s computer and color printer
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Washi tape
  • Construction paper
  • Large size poster board

1. Start by going through the magazine to find words, phrases, or pictures that represent your goals

2. Arrange the pictures into the poster board.

3. Optional place construction paper on the poster board to add colors in-between the pictures.

4. Once it is arranged, glue the pictures.

5 optional use washi tape to add color between the pictures.

Enjoy making your vision board
