Enjoy Nature!


As we meander a Path of Positivity, we are challenging you to get out there and  "Enjoy Nature!"  

Nothing quite takes your mind off stress and worries like a walk in a park or nature preserve seeing all the beauty  ....or maybe your preference is a ride in a boat listening to the oars hit the water  ....or maybe you are like me and you enjoy jumping on a horse and listening to his feet hit the earth in a rhythmic beat to the song of birds  ...or maybe you would enjoy just laying in a hammock smelling the fresh cut lawn and listening to crickets!  

Nature can be a rejuvenating time whether your desire is to relax/meditate or get your heartbeat up with some hiking/running!   

So get out there and Enjoy Nature, then come in to the craft room and share with us through any type of art medium you choose!!

*   *   *  

About my card:  I started in Cricut Design Space where I placed/printed my digi and sentiment.  I then cut an oval for my stencil.  After all was printed and cut, I placed the stencil over the digi and applied three colors of ink with a sponge.  Keeping the stencil in place, I splattered with paint.  Easy as that!  

All that was left was finding some stash paper that matched my color theme and assembling my card.

*   *   *  
   We'd like to hear your ideas at Path of Positivity!  Come share them with us!  

Remember, you may share any sort of artistic medium over at PoP:  writing, cards, journals, scrapbooking, painting, sewing, baking, needle crafts, etc as long as it is positive!  The theme is always optional.
