Since I hadn’t participated in a bit I thought I would head over to the Collage Obsession Challenge and see what it was for the week. As soon as I saw that it was “I can fly”, it instantly made me think of the commission piece I needed to finish for this wonderful lady who can fly and often does.
Her word of the year is CHANGE. Just like mine. When she saw my finished change piece that I made to remind myself throughout the year, she asked if I could make her one as well. I made the change on her piece much bigger.
This will serve as a little reminder for her that she CAN FLY on the days she is just not feeling it along with keeping her on track with the change she is wanting in her life for this year. A little spiritual kick in the pants. I think we can all use it sometimes. The power of positive thinking is an amazing thing. You can see the little caterpillar under the words, that change into the butterflies above.
I used Golden Glass Bead Gel mixed with brown paint for this part. I usually mix it with ink. I am not sure which I like better. Either way provides lots of texture but you can’t really see all the beads in this one. Might just be the dark colour though.
I can’t believe how quickly it came together. Was able to finish it while the little muffin was napping, now that is quick. I think that it helps that the person I was making it for is a pretty amazing and inspiring woman.
I hope she enjoys it. Now I just need to get it to the lovely Louise unless I keep it and switch it out for mine, haha. I like this one much better :).
