Quick, while Jaimie's not looking...

Apologies for the lack of posts around here lately - I've had creative block and was holding things up :/
It's Jaimie's turn to post this next prompt, but while she's not looking (ie sleeping hehehe) I thought I'd pop in and post a quick little sneak at my creation for it. She should be posting the prompt soon, but for now, take a peek!

Happy arting!

Prompt #3 - Letter to a Younger You

Lita here with this weeks prompt (can we just pretend it's Monday and that I posted this on time? Please?) Jaimie is the mastermind behind this prompt and whoa, it was a doozie for me!

I absolutely love Jaimie's creation this week. Her journaling hit home to me and of course, the way she has showcased it on the page is just gorgeous - I love her colour choices!

As always, I've pulled out the paints for my spread, and enjoyed every mess filled moment! There are so many layers to this one, and so many supplies used...THAT part I loved, but man, the journaling was hard for me this week. My younger self would really have benefited from what I know now lol
Do me a favour and pretend you can't see the pencil lines that I still need to erase...k?

I hope our creations this week have given you a creative boost and prompted you to write a letter to your younger self. We'd love for you to play along, so be sure to link us up in the comments if you do!
