A couple cards and restoring my soul

I've been playing a bit this week in my craft room...I've been playing with the remaining scraps from the January kit from Birds of a Feather... I created a few cards:

for this last one I used the chipboard watch and popped it up using some Helmar zap dots...I think it looks fun!

I've been working on the Soul Restoration online course curriculum this week as well. This course is all about restoring yourself to your true self. It is an amazingly inspiring class that really forces you to slow down, examine, and identify what matters most to you. I was fortunate to go to Brave Girl Camp in October, so I have a head start on this since that was a lot of the same soul searching... I am so looking forward to the next five weeks' topics... I have always felt that I am a work in progress and this course reminds me to always be on the lookout for areas to grow!!

Part of the fun that this class brings is the creative aspect of it... so I got to pull out my paints and Mod Podge and get busy... I will share two pieces with you...the first is what is called your "soul house" ....I really enjoyed creating this... I used some Maya Road chipboard and just kind of went to town...I painted the entire background and then all the pieces except the tree top; which I chose to use some wonderful pattern paper that was a perfect match in color...
next is my truthteller page...again I dug deep into my paints and worked to create a texture and pattern that would not distract from the words on the page, but would add depth and allow all the elements I selected to work together on the pages.

Melody and Kathy will be offering Soul Restoration one again in April...and part two will be held in June...if you have the opportunity I would highly recommend that you take time for yourself and sign won't regret the investment in yourself... restore your soul and empower your spirit to soar again!!
Happy crafting...Lynda
