Art Heart and Healing Week One
This wasn't the easiest for me to do. We had to write down all the negative thoughts that go through our minds and that we tell ourselves. My page was almost full, I really could have filled it up. It took me a week to do the page, because I had a hard time coming up with a positive statement. See for me, I believe a lot of the negative I wrote. So while I've not worked through or passed them yet, I came up with this "I am free to just be me!!!" as a reminder to myself.
I didn't want "HIM" to see what I was working on. But "HE" happened to pass by, and saw it. Took the book and looked at and snickered about my statement. UGH!
But I did enjoy doing the layering and the painting. It was fun. I'm not pleased with the paper though. I used as little water as possible to blend my watercolor crayons and the page still started to curl and buckle and shred up in some spots. This is actually the first time I've ever drawn a face like this.
