Hey there everyone!!
13arts has just revealed its October challenge HERE and this month it is a picture prompt!
We were asked to create a project based on these images and draw inspiration from the colours and images above. The other rule is to also use at least one art medium on your project.
Here is what I came up with.... this is a page for my first ever art journal. I absolutely loved this quote..
I was inspired by the butterfly and the colours. The quote of course is something that I think expresses the many stages of "thinking" that goes into making decisions. For me, the HEART always wins in the end followed closely by reason which doesnt make sense at all LOL! But I guess what I am trying to say is at the end of the day my heart has to be in anything I do. Once the heart is not interested anymore..well.. I do not hang around much longer.
Of course, when I used the quote here I am referring to the decision I made to have another baby after the tragic loss of the previous one, stillborn at 20 weeks. Many MANY people often expressed surprise that we "tried again" after what happened. I wasn't. I never thought what happened would stop me. But did all these thoughts enter my mind? Heck yes. Pride, experience and reason is what keeps us grounded. But the heart.. well.. the heart knows what it wants whether its right or wrong.
In the end, I am very glad we gave it one more try.. I now have Sofia. Need I say more?
This time around I did not use any 13arts papers or embellishments, but instead I used a whole heap of art mediums.
