Hi folks, today I am sharing with you the image What Matters by Aurora of The East Wind available in both rubber and as a digi from the store. I started by colouring the image with Faber Castell Polychromos, I then fussy cut the image ready to go in my journal.
With the background dry I then drew some flowers to match the image and coloured them again with my Polychromos. Next I used a dark green oil pastel to pick up the raised areas of the tissue paper.
Onto a bit of die cutting, this die is Oriental Ying Yang by Joy Crafts which I cut four of. I then coloured them with Pan Pastels and added some silver gilding wax.
Finally, I printed my text on acetate and attached it to my page with double sided tape. To me 'Me Time' is very important and I don't see it as selfish one bit but more a way of building my strength through finding myself (through crafting) and therefore being in a better place to help others more productively :) :) :)
A few purple stickle swirls and border around the text and a peace brad to finish off and there we have it, all done.
