This art journal page celebrates one part of my body that I love! Let me clarify one thing ... I love me, the person I am, because I am loved ... I was created by a loving God, in His image, and He loves me beyond measure, so because I know I am loved THAT MUCH, I love me. But I also love the person I have become, all my foibles and failures and everything, because I don't really always make the best choices, but I try to learn from both good and bad decisions I have made.
But ... I don't love most of my 'body'. But I do love my curves! By all rights I should probably be very overweight ... it's just in my genes ... but I'm not, and I don't really try to keep the weight off. Now that doesn't mean I couldn't stand to lose a few pounds, because I could ... definitely! But, I am content with my shape ... I have curves, real, honest to goodness curves and I love them.
So here is my tribute to my curves ...
Now, one thing you can't see in this image is that the 'light, foggy stuff' is actually a metallic gold and it looks great in person. You'll be able to see it better in another pic down below. For the dress form shape, I cut it from the 'Forever Young' cartridge using my Cricut Expression, and used it as a mask.
So, there you have it ... my 2nd art journal page using my Gelli Arts plate ... Blessings,
