My friend recently won a weekend meditation retreat in a raffle and she very kindly donated her prize to me. So, to say thank you, I have created her this mixed media canvas with my favourite Mindfulness quote.
Materials used: Gesso, Acrylic and watercolour paint, sparkle medium, ‘The Black Currant Stack’ paper, gems, pearlescent liquid acrylic, modge podge and Dylusions ink spray.
I just hope that my friend likes it!
I recently completed a Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course at work, which is what inspired this page. Mindfulness is all about being present from moment to moment and helps you to gain a greater understanding about yourself through meditation practices.
The meditation helps you to tune in to your body and mind and gives you a shocking insight into your own head! It has made me realise how much I worry and how stressed I have been feeling and has enabled me to take steps to look after myself a little better.
The fairy in this acrylic painting was inspired by the wonderful artwork by Suzi Blu.
