and hate . . .

Yes, this lesson from my "Mixed Emotions"  workshop is about hate.  Marit is teaching this time, and I found that hate is even a difficult word to say, isn't it?  I thought I would have a hard time with this one, but here . . .

 . . . is the page I created:

Our lesson included tearing and pasting!    I used the stop sign image from Marit's inspiration video as a starting point.  I then began tearing cardboard scraps up.  I tore and tore, and it felt very invigorating.  Next,  I started pasting those torn scraps down on my page, and just started adding more and more of my "stuff" on top of the torn cardboard.  I let it dry, then finally, I painted over everything with white Gesso and sprayed it with different mists.  I found the quote by Will Smith to be a perfect one for my page.  I can honestly say that I have learned that feeling, dare I say it, hate, for someone who wronged me (and my family) didn't get me anywhere.  Only forgiveness set me free . . .  Leave the rest to God.

Thank you so much, Marit, for teaching the amazing lesson about this difficult emotion.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Friday!  Have a great weekend!!!!

Hugs to you from me!

  5. This is a GREAT way to tackle 'hate' in a positive way.

  6. I think "hate" would be a very tough theme to work with, but I really like the approach you've taken--to focus on the necessity of *stopping* hate. I love the collage effect that you achieved with your built-up layers.

  7. Cool texture, love the all taupe with a pop of red!

  8. Such amazing grunginess!! Love it! ~ Blessings, Tracey

  9. This is a great page Sharon. Love all the different textures (almost a puzzle find all the different items), the quote, the colors. And... how the stop sign pops up almost like a big heart full of love.
    With the emotion hate I just LOVE IT

  10. Wow, this is awesome!!! LOVE!!!!!
