Over at Simon Says Stamp the Challenge is O is for. I was thinking about using the word observations, but when I came across this quote, I changed the word to just observe. The previous night my husband and I were talking about how comparing one's self to others is never a good thing and usually leads to hurt feelings. And I thought this quote fit right in with that train of thought and decided to create an art journal spread.

I already had some masking tape on this page so i added a bit more and then applied gesso over it. I decided to get out my Gelatos and used a yellow one for the background color.

I then colored some sticky back canvas with more Gelatos. I picked out a Tim Holtz stamp with positve words and sayings about being an individual. I randomly stamped this onto the canvas.

I then cut the canvas into strips and adhered them onto my background in a random pattern. I shaded the edges of the strips with a green Derwent Inktense Pencil and added some more stamping in.

Lastly I added in the quote with a black pen.

And there you have it a little reminder to be kind to yourself. As always thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop on over to Simon Says Stamp for more wonderful creations.
