WAW: "Never give up"

Vandaag hebben we voor Word Art Wednesday de quote: geef nooit, nooit, nooit op.
Wauw, soms heb je dat even nodig om te horen. Ik tenminste wel ;-)

Today we have this quote for Word Art Wednesday
Wow, sometimes you just need to hear this. At least, I do ;-)




Ik begon met deze art journal pagina en wist niet zo goed wat te doen. Ik wilde een hoop kleuren erin gebruiken met alleen een "creditcard". En dat lukte aardig, maar was er toch niet tevreden over. Toen heb ik met tape het hier en daar afgeplakt en een andere kleur erover gedaan. Maar toen liep ik vast. En heb het een aantal dagen weggelegd en bijna wilde ik het opgeven, want ik wist niet wat ik er verder mee moest. Ik was er niet helemaal blij mee. Maar toen dacht ik: ja, lekker makkelijk Wendy.... de tekst gaat erover dat je nooit op moet geven. En dan zou je juist op dit moment opgeven? Nee, dat gaat je niet gebeuren meid.
Whaha...... Dus ben er toch vandaag maar weer eens mee verder gegaan. En uiteindelijk is dit ervan geworden.

I started this art journal page, and didn't know exactly what to do. I wanted to use a lot of colors and only use my "credit card".  Well, that turned out quite what I wanted, but I still wasn't happy with it. Then I taped some painters tape here and there and put a layer green over it. But then I got stuck. I put my journal aside for days and I almost wanted to give up, because I didn't now how to finish the page. I really wasn't happy with it. But then I thought: well, that would be too easy, Wendy... the quote is about never giving up. And then you just want to give up this instant moment? No lady, that's not gonna happen. Whaha.
So today I just picked up my art journal and went on with it. And finally this is the finished page.




En hier is het filmpje over hoe deze pagina tot stand is gekomen.
And here the video of how this page was made.

How appropriate are your struggles with this gorgeous masterpiece you DID FINISH. I believe it's my favorite! The color is alive and I love the movement here. It's been a pleasure to guest design with you Wendy!

I love how you can see the layers of colors through the windows that were created by masking parts before you added the green layer. It's like removing the mask of fear. Blessings!

I love your heart, spirit and self talk. I have a lot of self talk too. This piece is beautiful, it reminds me of a lot my art, and in my art I am finding it's about finding and holding onto peace in the midst of the chaos in my mind and life. Reaching out for His strength when I want to give in.
I apologize for not visiting with you more. I hope you're doing well. Have a great day. Hugs
