It is Ok

I did my first page for my son's lessons journal. I wanted a first page that was more of an introduction to the journal. Lots of paint on fingers for this one! I used this custom element technique from Rae Missigman using washi tape. I added ink, spray ink, alcohol inks and spray paint.

The journalling reads:


To my sweet Parker,

I want you to know something that has taken me a long time to learn. It is Ok. It is ok to fail, it is ok to be scared. It is ok to make wrong choices, it is ok to get overwhelmed, and it is ok to get off your path for a while.

That's how you learn. And sometimes a lesson will come to you over and over until you learn it. That is ok too. That is what this book is for. To help you learn how to deal with those difficult days and to learn from every experience - good and bad.

I want you to grow up to be a happy, peaceful man who knows who he is. The lessons in this book are the ones I have taught you  and I hope will serve as a reminder when you need them.

I love you,


Happy Easter!
