Zen Artwork

I have been dying to try some of these decor elements, I have loved the ones I have seen in the catalogs on the mirrors. I couldnt find a mirror that fit the way I wanted, so I just took the letters and put them on one by one in order to move the letters closer to each other and make them fit on this mirror. I love the way it came out. Now I cannot wait to move next week so I can start to decorate the new house with some of the decor elements decorations!

Are you tired of hearing about my zen movement yet? I had an image in my mind of this picture. I wanted to show a beautiful sunset to demonstrate the philosophy of living in the moment. I looked for a stamp that was perfect to demonstrate the idea, but I couldnt find one to fit just the way I wanted it. Just Be is the phrase that came to mind, so I broke into my scrapbook supplies and used some foam letters. The stamp set is from Upsy daisy and the brayer technique, is from Michelle Zindorf, of course!

Finally, I saw a great sun on Michelle's blog that was made with flower petals and it made me think of a giant daisy growing. Part of living here and now, is taking life the way it is and building
it, to make your life beautiful. I couldnt find a stamp set that said Bloom where you are planted, which is what i had in mind, but, I really liked the idea, so I broke into my chipboard letters again and used the Bloom sentiment from Bloomin Beautiful. The chipboard letters dont stick super well on the brayered paper, which is kind of good, i think I will remove them as soon as I can find a stamp to replace them with.

I started a beautiful journal to put these pages in, while they are works in progress, I think once I get them just they way I want them, they would look great on teh wall in a frame. What do you think? Have any more ideas for my Zen Journal or Artwork for my walls?
