This year for Christmas/Yule my two closest friends and I decided to make each other gifts for Christmas. No buying! Considering all of us are super creative and talented, we were all super excited.
This year has also been hard for us all. There has been a ton of questioning ourselves and whether or not we were going in the direction that we needed to. Self doubt is probably the worst feeling in the world. I mad this piece as a reminder to her of how strong, beautiful, courageous, and powerful she is. And that no matter what, to remember who she truly is.
I carved and wood burned the piece on a a birch round and then began to water color. This piece was painted with a specially made herbal water wash and water color pigments. Each piece I do has a special mix made specifically for the person and their energy.
There are parts that have been sealed in resin to give a 3D shiny affect that other sealants cannot.
The best part? When she opened the piece, she legit started to tear up. It felt good to have something appreciated so much. ❤
