I have a dream


Embrace imperfection is more like this weeks theme.
No one can be afraid to post after my fearless posting of this messed up- and I still like it- ATC. when in doubt add glitter.
For more on my dreams check out my Still Waters Refuge blog.
In short- I want to have a place where all can come who seek refuge- a safe, sheltering place- with a large welcoming art and craft studio- to be both still and actively listening to the voice within and the Spirit.
Art, creativity is a universal language we all share and understand, with out words and judgment.
Safety , rest and silence are often keys to finding our creative selves and difficult to find in this hectic world.
I pray each step I take brings me closer to a physical reality of Still Waters Refuge. Leave me a comment if you are seeking short term refuge.
The card-Stamped the message and thermal embossed with Ranger pearl interference embossing powder- you can't see that in the scan. Stamped the flourished stars- love, love them with Ranger acrylic paint daubbers- to get more resist, and then smooshed distress inks around to get the background.
Mistake! on left- tried to fix it and kept making it worse, so covered it in this shredded glitter I got at the thrift store. it's holographic and again looks better in person. Hey- it was fun and it's colorful and it fits the theme!
What's your dream?
Please post and leave a comment.
thanks
