AlphabeThursday - P is for Princess

I sat down one Sunday after my house got broken into and took out my art journal.  I’ve been in a funk - just haven’t been feeling like doing any artwork

All I could think of was, “I will not be an enabler anymore.”  (Long story)  And that’s what I wrote, over and over.  Then I added blocks of paper, sprayed with my mini-misters (first time to use them; they’re great), scattered around some inexpensive cardboard flowers and glued down a princess that I saved from one of my “Year of the Fairy Tale” lessons.    

Still, I wasn’t happy.  Would I ever be? 

 I’d seen others scrape gesso on top of pages with credit cards, and change their artwork into  backgrounds.  So I tried that, except no gesso on my princess and flowers! 


 Later I added a “grass” bottom and wrote inside the blocks.  And finally walked away from my art table.  Moral of the story: remember to leave unwanted baggage in the background and move on.      


Come over the Ms. Jenny’s blog, …off on my tangent… 
and check out what other words were chosen for the Letter P.

Good for you! Writing stuff down always helps -- and the gesso effect is really cool! What, I must ask, are mini-misters?

If we do what makes us happy, we'll be happy.
Glad you were happy :)

I liked the ending, S.B. Don't ever forget that you are a Princess no matter how badly you might get treated.
I hope our five-year-old grand-daughter never forgets. She knows she is one, KP is Princess Elizabeth in her mind.

It's amazing how getting something down on paper can help us work through whatever is on our mind...

Sometime you just need to dump and run! Best to do it on paper, giving the rest of us the opportunity admire your creativity, princess
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Interesting artwork. Love your creative creation.

I really love what you do. I wish that kind of medium were more natural to me because it seems like a great way to work your feelings out and have a record of the process.

I am more the writer…but I do love art.

Glad you got out some of your angst. It's a horrible feeling to be burglarized.

May the Princess "progress" & attain "peace" :)
