Art Challenge:  Modeling Paste

Journal Prompt:  Rising to the Occasion

Ok, y'all know I love my modeling paste, right?  I do.  I use it whenever I can.  It is probably my favorite medium ever!  So this art challenge is a breeze.  Just a matter of sitting down and doing it.

I knew I wanted to use a particular stencil - one of my favorites by The Crafter's Workshop.  And since I'm in the mood for Dream Catchers here lately it just seemed totally appropriate to create a dream catcher.  I found this great quote (thank you Google) and everything just totally came together.

"Your success is meadured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; & how you handle the disappointment along the way." - unknown

Completely appropriate in my humble opinion.
Dylusions Ink Sprays for the background in my favorite color combination.  Modeling paste through the stencils.  Heidi Swapp Color Shine on the Zinnia for a little sparkle.  Gelatos to color my peacock feathers.  Some Dylusions stamps around the dream catcher's outer edge and in the background.  Then my quote.  Y'all, stamping that quote took forever!  But I'm so glad I stamped it rather than wrote it.  I think it fills the page quite nicely.

So the quote is really the focus of the prompt - Rise to the Occasion of your Dreams.  That's how I'm interpreting it!

Y'all have a great weekend!


  1. Gorgeous! Love everything about this. The quote spoke to me and was very timely. The colors, the textures - everything. Glad I stopped by.

    1. Thank you Lynda! I'm so glad it spoke to you!!
