Day 268: 5 Truths About Fear Painting/Collage

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

As you all know by now, for Christmas, birthdays, and pretty much any occasion where gifts are called for, I usually make them! My sister, Katherine definitely knows this to be true, so before Xmas and her birthday back in December, she asked me to create a painting/poster/drawing or something that had these words on it from a book she was reading. You’re supposed to say these 5 Truths About Fear several times throughout the day, so she wanted something that said them.

Here’s the words in case you can’t read them:

FIVE TRUTHS ABOUT FEAR
1. The fear will never go away as long as I continue to grow.
2. The only way to get rid of the fear of doing something is to go out… and do it.
3. The only way to feel better about myself is to go out… and do it.
4. Not only am I going to experience fear whenever I’m on unfamiliar territory, but so is everyone else.
5. Pushing through fear is less frightening than living with the underlying fear that comes from a feeling of helplessness.

I started out with just painting the canvas with a blue sample jar miss tint that I had in hand, then I used a crackle finish over that. Unfortunately, it didn’t show up very well, so I moved to plan B of decoupaging some pieces of tissue on top of that. And then I just wrote the words on it with a metallic silver Sharpie and I was done! I think it turned out pretty well, and now I just have to mail it to my sister! Hahahaha… Oops. In my defense, I DID have surgery right before Christmas, so, yeah. I’m terrible, but I will be sending it ASAP!
