Growing In Unity Day 5 . . . Inspiration House

Happy Friday everyone and welcome to my last post as
Unity Stamp Co. Growing In Unity Gal
It`s been a blast!!
Soooo, I was sitting looking around my shed { which is a bombsite now,lol } wondering what was I going to make for my last project,
 surrounded by 
stamps . . . paints . . . mediums . . . stencils . . . 
Oh, I know I`ll make a layout!
I even went as far as choosing the right picture, tissue papers, material and stamps
then
 changed my mind completely when I spied . . . .
 more wood, lol!!
 It`s shaped like a house and ever so slightly quirky plus I still had the
 lying on my bench 
soooo as the stamps say
Inspiration is everywhere
we just need to open our eyes
and
Embrace Possibility
Follow your Passion
In my life I have a need to create . . . it`s like breathing for me
and I create in my 
Happy Place
at home in the shed in my garden
 were even something as simple as this little door and heart make me happeeeee
Know Who You Are
I try and stay true to who I am . . . 
at times I doubt my ART and worry what others will think
 and lastly an Itty Bitty Stamp by
 Unity Stamp Co. & Donna Downey - enjoy. explore. believe
words to encourage me lest I forget . . .
trust in
your potential
enjoy
the process
TRY
something new,
explore
possibilites,
but most of all
believe
 Before I knew it I had used Gesso, Pan Pastels, pretty paper, doodle pen, stamps, embosiing powder 
and 
made myself 
a little inspirational house for those days when everything I touch just doesn`t work out or my mojo has flown the coop!
 
Remember and leave a comment under each of my posts this week to be in with the chance to win

I love this mostly for what it stands for. I doubt myself all of the time & I love what your little house says & means. I love that you create in a shop in your little garden. I have a little room where I go. I need to learn to stop worrying about what others think. Don't think that it will ever happen though. ;) Had a great week with you. TFS Hugs~Patti

Utterly fabulous, Tracy... I find your work constantly inspiring, delightful and always deeply satisfying somehow... This piece, like many others, seems to speak to me on a really deep level, tapping into something that just sings. I'm sad to hear it's your last for Unity - but I'm guessing it won't be your last work with these stamps which seem to suit you so well!!
