Path of Positivity: Girl Power


Happy Monday!
I hope you are staying safe and well.

Today is the start of a new Path of Positivity challenge.

This month the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of Girl Power.

Prizes this month include:
  • 2 images from All Dressed Up Stamps our guest sponsor for this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants. 
  • ONE image (value of $5 or less) from Scribbles Designs, for the post or project that the team deems most inspiring of the bunch based on all qualifying entrants.
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
Our optional theme this month is Girl Power
We are a powerful force in the world that needs to be celebrated.
 If you wish to play with the option, create a project that encourages and celebrates women's empowerment, independence, confidence and strength.

Please remember in order to be eligible for the prizes your project must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way.

I was lucky to receive an image from All Dressed Up Stamps and I chose 'Time to Read' to represent Girl Power. 

I don't think that anyone would dispute the importance of education in providing the first step towards empowering girls (and boys too!). Education helps girls to get on the career ladder and allowing them to choose and determine their own way in life. Reading, of course, is a major part of education and has many benefits, including developing language skills, imagination, confidence, and empathy. It teaches about the world around us, all the while exercising the brain.
 It has been proven that children who regularly read are higher achievers in school. 

Here is a close up of my card:

I used Copic markers to colour the image. I fussy cut around it and popped it on foam pads onto the background, using some torn washi tape to ground it.
The background is blended Distress Oxides in Scattered Straw, Fossilised Amber, Carved Pumpkin and Fired Brick. It has some Fired Brick stamping ( AALL & Create # Bold Alphas) in the background. Water droplets have bleached out some colour and white paint splatters have been added. The borders have black stamping (AALL & Create #338 Background Noise) and a hand scribbled border frame.
The sentiment is a quote from Dr Seuss' book I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

Many thanks to All Dressed Up Stamps, this month's guest sponsor,

and to Scribbles Designs as the ongoing sponsor of the challenge

We would love to see your creations! 
Just make sure that your entry is positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way!
