I haven't had the chance to do a lifebook lesson lately, I have been side tracked by mermaid parties + life, and by other paintings that have been shouting at me to paint.
So I finally made it back into the Lifebook lessons catalogue and decided to do Joann Loftus's lesson.
It is a really simple, but totally cool technique that mimics a stained glass window + is very effective.
I totally love looking at this page - I am struck every time but the contrast between the black of the page + the bright light of the 'window'
On the window you can almost make out the quote I used, which is such an inspiring one for me.
It says ~
"Don't wait for a light to appear at the end of the tunnel ~ stride down their and light the bloody thing yourself." Sara Henderson.
Imagine if it was that simple! Imagine if you had the courage to let in the light - to light the damn light yourself?
Huh.... I have just had a minor epiphany.
In writing this post I have totally just inspired myself to take action this week. I am not going to sit in the dark - I am going to take control of some of the elements that I feel are really out of control in my life this week
I am going to light the DAMNED light myself.
I will let you know how I go...
And if you feel inspired to take action this week with me, I would love to know where or what it is you are going to shine a light on!
By the way - did you know that this months give away is open for entries? It is totally free + so easy to enter. Why not pop over + see whats for grabs this month??
