I love vintage books and even more then simple stories I love maps. I love finding an old atlas. I made this picture for my wall because I needed to see something different. CHANGE!!! I love this season of change that will be here in a few days! So I needed to see something new. I would do this every week if I had the time and inspiration! No, I have both of those, so maybe just enough push and motivation to do it.
I don’t mind failing and I need to post a few pictures of projects that were rejected. I think failing makes me try focus on what the end result should be. I also have to be honest with myself about what I am able to do. I come from a long line of “duct tappers”! Motto: If you can’t figure out the right way to do it then fake fix it! get it to work for the moment and pray it won’t break too soon.
Soooo… I made this picture I don’t love it and I had to cut the sides off the good old USA but it isn’t too bad. I like the look of the map, the red it too bright and the map is cut in a way where more then one person has asked what part of the world that is in the picture. I am not in love with this project but I love that I have something new on the wall. I need change in my life to keep me involved and motivated for more change! But this one will NOT make it to my store.
Song writers have to write lots of songs before a “hit” is written. Artist are the same way! It’s called the chaff. The chaff comes with the wheat you just have to tell the difference! I think this describes the mapping of your heart. I can copy all day long from a huge talent pool, talent greater then mine. But when you find inspiration that spurs your creative side and pushes your limits that is where your heart is found. You can map your heart by what draws you in and makes you excited.
We have been created by a Master Creator that we have been made in the image of. We all long to create something in the image of our heart. We all long for the story of a victor who slays the dragon. We all sing a heart song that wants to see true complete restoration for the people we love. We laugh, love, hurt, hope and cry our heart song each day in different ways. Unleash your heart song and dream of a true victor who will slay the dragon, who holds the keys to true restoration for the ones you love. Create art, write words, sing songs, make something that will sing your heart song. All that is left is creating a map of your heart, mountains, valleys and all!
