Albert Einstein said: The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination. So knowledge or imagination? Could we have knowledge without imagination? Could we reach beyond our limits if we don’t have enough imagination? Doubt it. I was inspired by Carolyn Dube stencil play with journal prompts, you can find her link here. Thank you Carolyn.
Well my spread was beginning with some burlap and a lot of glimmer mist sprays.
I had a gelli print, that I tore up into pieces and distressed the edges with distress ink. I scattered around my pieces on my spread. I stamped on them with splattered mug stamp and archival ink. I stencilled my main words: knowledge, intelligence and imagination on a white scrap piece. I applied my first word with some thread for even more texture:
As I liked it, I added my second word:
And randomly I placed my third one as different prompts:
Finally I wrote down my words of wisdom on a scrap piece and I even layered more scrap pieces:
So that way I was trying to get rid of limits, use my imagination, use some word prompts and think out of the box. Now why don’t you go and create something out of the box?
