At a time of uncertainty a couple of years of ago I found a need to create hope and I started to seek and explore the power of positive words.
I started to create art with the positive words cut from newspaper articles that were reporting bad news.
I wanted to find the positive from the negative, to find hope.
I also make positive word art using one of my favourite pens, a chunky bamboo dip pen and what a joy it is to use. It drips and blobs and is unpredictable with its marks and I embrace this process.
I love the freedom this creates, I can let go and allow the marks speak.
By writing a word in repetition on the paper I create affirmations, the word becomes real to me and the patterns they create bring me joy.
Have a go. See if your words can bring you joy!
