Red is so BOLD!
I love it.
It is all about strength, confidence, love, and fierceness.
I am a pretty shy person, so attention freaks me out. Red screams, "Look at me!" Right? I think secretly I want to deck myself out in red shoes...or maybe a red dress...or a red coat. Totally fabulous. My friends and family would probably pass out from shock. ;) I looked in my closet and I am not kidding...I have one - ONE red cardigan sweater that must have been my attempt at being "bold" for Christmas.
But, that's it.
Are you a red wearing girl?
If you are, I totally admire you! :)
I mean, look...
Or what about this.... just a little something to wear to Target. :)
Oh my goodness! What about a red shoe?
I think I need to wear more red! And, have you checked out Pinterest? I could spend hours, but, I won't! :)
So this week the lovely Kristin inspired us to work with red. It was quite fun & I ended up with, of course, another girl (I promise I will try something different!). I had an idea in my head about what I wanted to create in my journal, but started working on another piece of cardboard. I was having tons of fun working on textured backgrounds. I used Mod Podge and some napkins I had on hand. I loved the texture of the napkins & it looked great on the surfaces I was using once it dried for a bit. I love using napkins, tissue paper, and paper towels to add some visual interest to the background.
I hope you can see it in the picture.

I used acrylic paint, Faber-Castell PITT pens, napkins for background texture, watercolor crayons, Sakura white Gelly Roll pen, black Pentel for details, bible pages for wings & crown, and pencil.
See the yummy texture!
Have a beautiful, creative week. I am looking forward to purple this week. I already know what I am doing. :) Come join the fun!
