I have been picking up quotes lately that challenge me and this one is no exception. A week has gone by since I posted the first page in my art journal. Today I completed page 2 and the quote for today was around obstacles. I had picked up the brick stencil from Paperzone earlier in the week so it seemed to fit with what I was thinking about. How many times do we put obstacles in the way of doing something ... "I can't do that because ...". I know I am as guilty of that as the next person. I am the only person standing in the way of me achieving anything.
I used Quinacridone Magenta and Diarylide Yellow for my base followed by a light spritz of Tattered Angels Glimmermist called Blarney (lime green). After drying off with my heat gun I spread coarse texture gel over the "Mini Bricks" stencil from The Crafters Workshop. A little dirtying up with some indian ink rubbed on with a paper towel, a couple of heat embossed flowers, the quote, a pic of me and the obligatory date tag and we're done. Enjoy.
