Gifts of Imperfection - selfie & courage
I printed my photo onto my half sheet (8.5``x 5.5``) of white cardstock, added some doodling around the photo with my fine tip Sharpie, colour washed the rest with burnt umber and then stamped my `LOVE`` definition (SU) all over in a darker ink. I hand lettered the COURAGE quote and added a heart embellishment. To create my embellishment I drew the heart on red cardstock, cut it out, added definition with a bit of watercolur and then stamped the same `LOVE`` stamp on it!! I stapled it to my page and added some cute little tags that hold the names of the people whose opinions I value and have earned the right to hear my story. I did some personal journaling on the back of the page.
I don`t have many pictures of myself!! It is interesting to see what I really look like! I am loving my new haircut!!
