MMP Challenge: Light the Way

So, I’ve never participated in the Mixed Media Place challenge before, but I was inspired by the February challenge and looking at all the fabulous entries. I found it too late that month to participate, but when the March challenge was announced, I fell in love with the mood board and thought I’d join in the fun.

Well… things did not go according to The Plan. I got sick. Work got crazy. Anxiety got worse. And I just did not get to do what I had intended to do for the challenge. Still inspired by the mood board, I found a few minutes of free time this past weekend, so I sat down to play in my art journal.

And once again, nothing went as planned. By the time Saturday evening rolled around, I had an art journal background that was, to be frank, a hot mess. I was frustrated and tired, and I thought, “Ah well. I’ll just toss this and work on something else tomorrow.”

I didn’t sleep much Saturday night, because my anxieties like to keep me awake obsessing over little things… like my failed background. So when Sunday morning dawned, I decided that, yes, the background was a hot mess, but it was a hot mess I had created, so I was going to OWN IT.

And I finished the layout. It’s not perfect by any means, but I am now happy with it. I used mostly Finnabair mediums — Crackle Paste, Sparks and Metallique paints. It’s hard to see in the photos, but it’s a super shiny background. I just love using those paints!

Hopefully someday, things will go according to The Plan… but I won’t hold my breath. 😀
