It takes Courage to
grow-up and Become
who YOU really are.
I am growing to love these little birdies. They each have a personality of their own. I needed to do 2 more pages in the Sketch Mail Journal, and I didn’t feel inspired to do anything, NOTHING!
Yesterday I came across this quote which I’ve always loved. I thought, maybe just maybe I could dress up a little birdie and have her speaking the quote. So, I got to drawing…..luckily aprons aren’t too difficult to draw. Boots seemed to be pretty easy as well. I was unsure what kind of hat to put on her. Initially I would’ve loved to draw a floppy little cotton floral hat, but thought it may look more like a hat if I just stick to a standard version. Added a watch on the wing and a flower off the hat…..and TA-DA! Done!
I am gonna miss this little greeny-girl bird with attitude! Cuz I think she’s what I want to be! You can see I even un-knowly dressed myself in the same color this morning! My new favorite color is this green, would that be “chartruese”? Anyone know?
Here’s the up-close version of my new Bird with the quote. Why are we so afraid to wear a little color? Is it cuz it will draw attention to ourselves? And then what? Do we have to have something clever/funny/or cute to say then? Ahhh, whatever…..I say just do what you like, wear that shirt with the colors you adore in it!! And when people look……just Smile and Wave!!!
And here is one of the reasons I adore Photoshop!! The quote bubble here makes much more of a statement than the white version, don’t ya think?
And Janet, if you’re out there….I should get this in the mail to you by tomorrow, hopefully :D
