Impression Obsession Spring Release Blog Hop Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the Impression Obsession Spring Release Blog Hop.
Today I'm sharing my first page, which is a warm up assignment  for a year long art course i'm taking online called  LifeBook 2018 at Willowing Arts. This particular lesson was designed by the founder of Lifebook Tamara Laporte.  I am such a fan of her whimsical artwork.

In the last few years I have dealt with many health and emotional challenges and have worked hard to get a handle on many aspects on my life. My Art has been integral in allowing me to maintain my sanity through all of this mayhem. I believe there is always a silver lining in each and every cloud. 

These challenges have allowed me to reacquaint myself with my spirituality and the principles by which I wish to live my life. I truly feel I am on my healing journey and engaged in exploration of me, my inner child and higher self. The Butterflies represent the fluidity of my growth as well as the metamorphosis of my spirit. I am excited to be embarking on this self exploration journey through art, meditation and self care. You'll find my blog is going to become a little more personal as I am so excited about sharing my journey with you as a means of a diary of sorts and a source of inspiration for others. 

I took the liberty of using some of the new release stamps in the creation of this warm up page.

The words Journey and Exploration come from the latest Journal Jargon 3  set by Seth Apter. I love the selection of stamps he has designed exclusively  for Impression Obsession. I am a HUGE fan of his Artwork!
If you look closely, you can see two of the newest Cover a Card Stamp Sets:

 Can you spot either set in there?

I also couldn't find any small text paper (the circles under the two smaller butterflies) so I used Beauty Text to create my own.

Lastly the little x's stamped in Gesso are from the Really Useful Stamps-Circle Set

Hope you enjoyed my project!
