A Grateful Mixed Media project to share!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday!

I have a page that I did for my Mixed Media Class with Tracy Weinzapfel to share with you!
This challenge was 2 parts one to share a page on being Grateful, find a quote that reflected your feelings. I found this quote by Albert Schweitzer :

 "At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us."

When I read this quote I thought how perfect for Tracy! She rekindles that spark every Monday night!
I have others in my life, a few other close friends that can rekindled that spark in other areas of my life, but Tracy is able to get to the artistic side, the happy side of my heart and Soul.
I hope that you all have someone that can do that for you! And how exciting if you can do that for someone else! Wow what a feeling that would be!
The second part of the challenge was to you a color story board from Deco Arts or their Pintrest page.
I found a color story of a Navy, turquoise blue and gray with an accent of yellow tablescape. So the colors I used were Sapphire Blue & Turquoise Waters (Deco Arts), Turquoise (Plaid) and Dolphin Gray(Delta).

Here is my piece! I hope you like it!

  I did cut the flower our and raised it up with foam tape for some more dimension.

Supplies used:
Gesso from Claudine Hellmuth (Studio paints), Deco Arts Satin paint ( I love this new paint! so smooth to work with), Stencils from Crafter Workshop, Faber Castel paint pens, and Montana white paint pen.
Thank you for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day!
