52CP31: Solitude

Good Sunday morning to you! I hope you've had a great week! Today I want to share a totally awesome video that I discovered on Susannah Conway's blog:

Is that the coolest or what? We've been talking about being okay with ourselves and loving ourselves and being comfortable in our own skin, and being okay with being alone is HUGE on that particular front!

Here's my card:
Stamps: Scrappy Cat Sparkle Flourish; Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Paper: Strathmore Sketch pad, black; Accessories/tools: Prismacolor colored pencils, Gamsol, blending stumps, Bic black marker

I lightly traced a circle and drew a heart in it, then colored everything with colored pencils blended with Gamsol. After that, I stamped a couple of flourishes and doodled a bit on the heart. I wanted the sentiment on the outside but just couldn't get happy with it, so it's inside instead. It says, "Within you there is a solitude and peace, to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself." It's a quote that's been in my head since junior high, but I don't know who said it...

Here's Mr. Linky so you can show me your creations!
