Week 18 - Add an Inspiring Quote to Guide Your Week


I spent all week trying to find a profound and inspirational quote to share in this challenge.  I have a Pinterest Board, a book and a file on my computer full of quotes that I love.  Nothing seemed to move me this week and then I realized I have been taking myself waaaay too seriously lately!  I really need to 'lighten up' a bit.  I stumbled upon this quote and knew I had found exactly what I was looking for.  I needed to be the fruit loop!

I started with a piece of newsprint that I used as an under paper for a previous project.  The colors reminded me of fruit loops!  I outlined a section of the paper to fit into my planner and began to sketch and write out my quote.  I used my new AWESOME Montana Acrylic Markers to do the lettering and painted the rest in with watercolors.  Now this quote really speaks to my life right now . . . "Be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios!" (unknown author).  I need to remember to be my unique, authentic self and not to try to be like anyone else!

Hope you enjoyed the challenge - I can't wait to see all of your beautiful quotes!  Don't forget to check out the other Art to the 5th Blogs . . .
