Imagine. Create. Enjoy.

Hello lovely souls,

The gift making continues. I had the pleasure of creating a special gift for the lovely Sarah Trumpp. She is big into chakras and yoga so she requested a heart chakra piece. You know how I love chakras so I pushed my flower of life, heart chakra design even further for her piece. It's just perfect for this time of year. All that glitters is gold, you know.

I started out with some water colors and the flower of life stencil and some gold. I remembered I had some BA gold tinsel embossing powder so I used that for some sparkle and dimension.

Next I wanted to do some outlining so I outlined the gold with a white uniball pen.

Next it was time to add some dimension with the heart chakra layer. I used the heart chakra stencil and some texture paste.

Next I wanted to keep with the green theme for the heart chakra so I used some inks, and sprays to add some more green.

Here is the finished 6x6 canvas. I followed the sides with the awesome gold tinsel embossing powder as well.

I also had the pleasure of spending a little time with my friend, Amanda in the studio. We were feeling creative so we decided to play in my art supplies and do some little 4x4 canvas' for gifts. I used: hemp flower, anasazi, peace, and third eye pocket stencil for my piece. I used some watercolor paper and backed it on a flat 4x4 canvas with a recycled sari silk ribbon as the hanger. This will be a perfect little gift for giving.

What kind of gifts do you like to create for the holidays?

Love, light, and creativity,

xoxo Genea
