June challenge - Creative Gym #19

Do you know, that fear is something totally unreal? It is located in our minds and it comes from our ego. And we are something much bigger than our ego - in truth we are not an ego at all :) So why not to be courageous and to dream freely? 

You get in life what you have the COURAGE to ask for.

You can create anything you want - a tag, a layout, a card, an off-the-page project, a card, an ATC, an art-journal spread, a canvas and many more - just be inspired by our quote and put our challenge banner in your blogpost showing your entry.

Here is an inspiration delivered by our fabulous team:

Hello Dear creative souls
Today I show you my Challenge May For Mixed Media Place.
I decided to interpret the challenge as Project Life.
Here is my creation. Remember to look below the photos, because I created a video for you.

And here is my video:

I wish you a very creative day

Hello Creative Souls! 

This is my interpretation of June Creative Gym exercise:) 

It's all about good crazy dreams:) My dream is to have a little house on the hill covered with colourful flowers;) I started my canvas with mixed media background using flashy colours and some doodling. Izinks have great pigment and they are just fabulous to play with. I also added some doodling. The next step was to create a little hill. I decided to go for art stones so they could imitate the rocks. I added colour with Ecolines, which just flow nicely in between the art stones. I also added some flowers, mechanicals, lace and pebbles to create textured landscape At the end I added my little dream house made of wire;)

 I hope you enjoyed the project and that you feel inspired to paint your own dream and to enter our challenge:) 
Love! Sylwia

I believe in power of our thoughts, but for a long time I didn't ask for what I wanted, because I always thought that I might interfere with other's free will or wishes... But this way of thinking is behind me - now I believe that I can live the life I wish and dream of. Be courageous - dream and ask for your dreams.

For this month challenge I created a tag. I love this form! Usually I use some inspirational quotes and place them somewhere on the tag. I was inspired by colors of our challenge. Although the colors are vivid, my tag is light. I have used some paints, mists and a little bit of gesso. Papers, stickers and tags come from 7 Dots Studio.
