I admit I was inspired to do this piece of paper art by something I saw on Pinterest. Something I didn’t pin, and cannot find again — boo!
However, the original as I remember it said, “Let it Bloom.”
As the days have gone by and it has haunted my creative mind, it evolved into a piece that would speak deeply to me.
Let yourself bloom. Let MYself bloom.
Slowly, I feel changes creeping upon me. (Everything is slowly with me!) I am welcoming these changes. But still, you know how that can be! Apprehension, anxiety, even a level of fear.
Because these are actually all good, positive, even fun changes and I made this piece to encourage myself to just go with it. To do the happy springtime, new beginnings, BLOOMing thing.
Some all-over flower prints always make me feel good, whether they are on fabric or paper! Pinks, greens, and teals are my comfort colors (although I always have to say I don’t really think of myself as a pink-loving girly girl.) A good solid grid layout anchors my soul LOL Using things I already have available gives me warm fuzzies.
This project ended up serving two purposes — encouragement in the future, and a satisfaction for the now.
Bring it, change! I’m ready. Bring lots of green leaves, a strong stalk, and a big lush flower on top. Just take it easy on me :)
