The wandering soul

hey everyone. I am super excited to share that I just posted my first project for UmWowStudio. Being completely honest, I was slightly intimidated being chosen to be part of an amazing team. The other girls are so wildly artistic with their projects. Paints, inks, and gesso galore, and I'm over here happily with my mist and occasional water paints, but I was so amazed at how versatile the products can be. I tore into the product the minute it reached my mailbox, creating 2 layouts and still crazily inspired for more. I created a layout about my love for seeing the world. I grew up in a smaller town in the state of Maine. I never traveled far with family, until I fell in love with a boy that became a military man right out of Highschool. We have lived in many states, and it has sparked a desire to experience more culture and life.

I knew I wanted to use this laser cut map right away, and had the idea to use UWS arrow confetti. It was unexpectedly smaller than expected so I used them to point out all the states I have called home.
I added another arrow and one of the layered triangles to frame out my title.I also added an UWS star flair. They are larger than average flair, adding great detail. I search for the perfect quote, and found this amazing one on Pinterest, of course.
If you get the chance, stop by and leave some love, and stop by the shop to see all the great product they have. The style is amazing, and he product is so inspiring and unique! Happy Monday friends, thanks for stopping by!
