This page, entitled “Be Brave,” is another I completed recently. It also features a photograph from Kim Rae Nugent’s new book, Journal Starters Sampler Volume I.
“Be Brave” serves as a sort of message to myself–a reminder–that I need to keep pushing the envelope with my art, and rise above the feelings of insecurity that sometimes make me reluctant to try new media, tools, and techniques.
As someone who suffers from anxiety in general, I think this page is also a good warning not to allow the anxiety, which is sometimes quite paralyzing, to keep me from living my life to the fullest. There are definitely times that I need to ignore the voice inside my head that says, “I can’t,” and shout back, “I can! I’m brave! There isn’t anything I can’t do!”
This page was created with gesso, spray inks, stencils, pigment ink, stamps, rub-ons, a fragment of paper torn from my daily planner, a section title from an old book, pens, a vintage Dymo label, and an image from Kim’s book.
You may order Kim’s book at Amazon.com
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by! Hope you have a great week!
