✨I had a good chuckle to myself tonight as I snapped a picture of the final project of my ”experiment”. -✨
I was recently gifted some alcohol inks and art supplies by @yesimtall_iknow (❤️❤️❤️ seriously girl, you have no idea how grateful I am for your donation!!) I got SO EXCITED to tear into them. It was like Christmas morning!! 🙏🏼🥳I was thanking the universe for allowing me time to slow down, to do art just “for fun” since recently they’ve all been commission pieces (super grateful for the work tho y’all!🙏🏼) , and that’s when I noticed that the time was 11:11. It was such a delightful confirmation!🤩🙌🏼 .🔥
I set the time aside for myself to sit down and watch a couple of YouTube videos on alcohol ink techniques, since I hadn’t worked with them prior to this week. This was a treat for me because I usually can’t justify spending my *very precious* free time to staring at a screen... especially for 20-40 minute long tutorials. I watched one video, then the next, next. As I watched them, I could feel an innocent joy in my heart that I hadn’t felt since childhood.... since my school days. It was the the passion to learn. The thirst for knowledge. Just drinking it all up! 🧠🍸👏🏼. I could feel the corners of my mouth curling into a smile. In that moment, I felt like a child, finding simple moments of happiness as a student, without the daily responsibilities and the weight of the world weighing down my shoulders. I felt serene. I felt heart-centered. 🙏🏼❤️🔥.
I’m so thankful for these hyper focused moments of clarity. For they hold all the answers. 🙏🏼 #slowdown #lessonoftheday #knowledgeispower #ilovelearningnewthings #geekoutoverart #grateful #attitudeofgratitude #findthanks #forgetabouttime #liveinthemoment #flowstate #art #alcoholink #alcoholart - 17 minutes ago
