Peonies are beautiful flowers. Aren’t they all beautiful! How does nature always get everything right?
The paint went on thick. I didn’t intend for all the texture. It was a lovely surprise. I have a palette knife. I prefer a smaller one. Sometimes you order thinking it’s a great idea. When it arrives, you want to send it back. Ooh, I should stamp with the handle and see what happens! I used a size 10 brush to mix color. Not a good idea. All the paint builds on the brush. I’ve ruined a few brushes like that. White and Quinacridone Magenta you make lovely pinks. The green is a good shade. In between the flat brush and a round brush, I stamped with a bottle cap. What an idea! What other shapes can I stamp with? I haven’t thought about the background. I have, just not sure what direction I want to go in.
AND that brings me to let go. For real. Let this post be a reminder to play. Some ideas are good. Some ideas are ok. Some of them, ALL of them are gems. This is a journal. I’ll fill it with fabulous ideas. It’s a journal. There’s room for fun and play. Oh, I’ll scatter some aqua blue hearts around the flowers. Maybe a butterfly. You see, point proven. Trust the process. Enjoy the ride. I write about this all the time. I know. I need these words in my heart and in my toolbox.
Enjoy the process. It’s going to be good.
