Lani’s challenge encouraged readers to create a medal for others and I thought Courage ACCs would be great to make for this prompt:
On my wooden circle shapes above I used a combination of watercolor, glitter glue, dictionary words, ink, and metallic paint pens.
I also came across these epoxy clear domes at the craft store a couple of week-ends ago and they fit perfectly on top of the round 1 inch surface. Each dome is also adhesive, so it was super easy to attach. I can’t wait to exchange these five ACCs with members from the Creative Mail Art Collabs and Challenges workshop this spring!
While focusing on this theme for my ACCs, I also kept thinking about a favorite children’s book I enjoy reading in art therapy when also exploring this theme: Courage by Bernard Waber.
Waber reminds us:
There are many kinds of courage.
And everyday kinds.
Still, courage is courage whatever kind.
Back in 2011 when I took Lani’s 6 Easy Lessons for a Happy Artist’s Life workshop during the first round of 6 Degrees of Creativity, I remember using Waber’s reminder on the below art journaling spread. It was part of Lani’s second lesson: Showing gratitude to our strengths!
Nice to re-visit this theme again and create more courage related creative goodness! Many thanks Lani for the inspiration this week… 🙂
