Prima Pin Spin!

Bringing to you today Prima's Pin Spin!!!!

I love this feature, this is my first try at it. I wanted to go for something SO bold and dramatic. I could look no further when I came across this pin.....

My interpretation of this very much was inspired by the water first and foremost and the colors. There is something so beautiful about this to me.

You can read about my full interpretation on the PRIMA BLOG.

Listening Heart

I chose a photo that really lined up well with the overall theme of my layout. 

This photo was taken of me recently. I see a variety of emotions and themes running through my mind when I look at it. I have been playing with Photo overlays to also achieve the emotions I was feeling at the time. This one was one of the many. I think that it is one that reminds me that life is not always going to be sunshine, and flowers, and happy 24/7. Or maybe happy, just not from an earthy source.

My heart has been troubled. I am listening to the only one that can lift the burden and I will find rest in him alone. 
Matthew 11:28.

I really have been making it my creative mission to create with emotions and use colors, mediums, and textures to really bring about an overall drama to the piece I am working on. 

What mediums or techniques do you use to achieve "emotions" or a particular "feeling" in your project? I would love to hear what you do! :)

Until Next time,

  12. Your blog post is very much to the point, and yet builds throughout! The initial photograph you included starts the emotion level! What a cool picture - total abandonment in creativity!
    Then you include your layout - just gorgeous! The quiet colors and equally quiet photograph are amazing. Then finally the bible verse. I am not a religious person, but the spirituality here is beyond words.
