As we work our way through the Mindfulness Prompts each month, I can't believe how many ideas I have! As an added challenge, I am trying to use a different technique for each month's card.
For this month, I have been experimenting and playing with light modeling paste. I love how it adds texture and dimension to a piece. I decided to apply the paste through a stencil (so many choices!) When I stumbled onto my bamboo stencil, that was it. I initially associated the bamboo with "strength" and/or "flexibility." I tried and tried to find the perfect quote to express these characteristics of the bamboo, but none of the quotes I found felt quite right.
When I found this quote about finding wisdom in emptiness, it really spoke to me. Instead of focusing on the "strength" or "flexibility" of the bamboo, I looked to the hollow of the bamboo to represent "wisdom."
