I had this idea planned in my head, but as I was working…things has changed a little. The idea was to make two big buildings from where the rope was going to hang but….my room is SO MESSY that I couldn’t find the dies. So instead of making it my own (duh!) I was so concentrated that I decided to switch things around a bit!
I grabbed two Manila Tags and started adding pieces of paper, tissue wrap paper, gesso and colors…
These TAGS (in my head) represent the two buildings I wanted to make – I die cut letters from the Tim Holtz Word Play die and on one side I wrote “fear” and on the other “dreams”.
For me, a big “leap into the unknown” is finding the perfect balance between your fears and your dreams. We usually have our fears that hold back and play games into our minds that do not let us achieve our dreams…
…and of course I had to add my little wire guy to this creation.
To balance the little guy over the rope that represent the journey I decided to create a big umbrella that I decorated using this cute fastener by Tim Holtz. What represent the umbrella? Everything that surrounds us. From friends, from family, from work…to anything else and more.
So here is how interpreted this week’s theme, I cannot wait to see what you guys will make!
